Vegetables are beautiful. Compare this image to the following items: Twinkies, chicken nuggets, Coke, mashed potatoes… It’s crazy that people find these foods delicious when visually they are so admittedly bland and unappealing. I love including a wide range of colors in my meals. With fruits and vegetables, this task is easy to accomplish. With a meat and potatoes diet… not so much. I love making roasted veggies because I can throw bite-size pieces of veggies into a pan, stick it in the oven, and then eat. Easy enough.
