Eat Your Winter Vegetables

February 6, 2011

I know it’s important to include raw vegetables in my diet, but as the winter wears on I find myself eating fewer and fewer green salads.  When I’m feeling cold, I prefer cooked vegetables and one of our favorite ways to prepare winter vegetables is in the oven. 

Almost every night we eat baked cauliflower, which is as filling as potatoes but won’t make your blood sugar spike.  We roast green beans, sweet potatoes, and artichokes (boiled, halved, and cleaned first).  When we find acorn squash in the market we always pick up a few and roast them. 

Below are two of our favorite winter vegetable recipes:
