I take sweet potatoes, sweet peppers, squash, turnips, parsnips,chunks of cabbage, & carrots. The sweet potatoes I leave whole, cut up the rest of the vegetables. I add one teaspoon of canola oil mix it through all the vegetables & then roast at 250 degrees for 6 hours,this caramelizes them. So delicious. I make a small roaster full and have them throughout the week ( do not add any water while roasting )

Do you have leftover roasted vegetables like onions, zucchini, bell peppers or eggplant? Don't throw the leftovers out! Instead mix these vegetables with some freshly cut herbs and olive oil and serve whole wheat warm toasted rolls or Nature's Own 100% whole wheat English Muffins or bagels. They really are 100% whole wheat!
Choose Foods you Like & exercise you can live with
Once you decide TO ... you have to decide HOW ...
Choose foods you LIKE or it's not going to work .. I'm NOT a salad fan but I LOVE roasted vegetables .. so I make alot of meals with vegetables and very few with salad -
It also helps to have about 10-20 "go-to meals" in the recipe box
That way you don't have to think on those nights you aren't sure what you want.
For exercise start at your level even if your level is one minute at a time. Look for "little" things to show you are making steady progress. Don't begin with exercise you hate, just MOVE somehow and you'll WIN!
