A Roasting Success!

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day, everyone!  If you had the day off, yay for you I am sooo jealous!  Retail don’t care one bit about hoildays! haha! While it’s MLK JR day it’s also Inauguration Day! I’m not a fan of Obama, I’ve been raised Republican but I did really like one of his quotes from his Inaugural Address:

“Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.” -President Barack Obama”

I’m all about equality! But now on to what ya came here for, breakfast!  A never can go wrong with it yogurt bowl, well yogurt mug since I used my favorite Anthropolgie mug! photo 1Yoplait strawberry banana yogurt with a handful of Life cinnamon squares thrown in for some crunch!

I love roasted veggies but I had been getting sick of the plain Jane evoo with some salt and peppa variety so I was on the hunt for a way to spice them up.  Carrie over at Fitness and Frozen Grapes shared her way of doing it with me and I have to say the addition of cayenne pepper made these out of this world!  They where slammin’ good!  photo 3I roasted broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, zucchini, and carrots at 400 degrees for a half hour.  Before spreading them on a baking sheet to roast I tossed all of it in a bowl and covered it with a generous coating of EVOO, sea salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and some garlic salt.  They rocked my world.  And well because I had such a success roasting them I knew I had to incorporate these babies into lunch. Lunch today included my veggies, some Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, and a salmon filet. Simple but out of this world! photo 5I love having fish in the middle of the day!  It’s out of the ordinary for me so it’s a nice change!

See you guys tomorrow!

Question for you:  How do you roast veggies?
