Roasted Vegetable Salad with Tahini Dressing

Roasting veggies is a great way to add flavour, mask any bitterness and improve digestibility.  Eating a plate full of veggies for lunch or dinner feels so nourishing and leaves you feeling energized and content.  Add egg or meat for added protein.

It’s full of rich flavour, B vitamins and is the only plant source of vitamin D, which is a difficult vitamin to get enough of through diet. It’s low carb with only 12 g in 2 1/2 cups.

I love the colours of this salad - so Christmas-y! This salad is so filling with lots of healthy fats and carbs and it has 37 g of protein! The blue cheese goes so well with the apple and pomegranate. A great recipe if you’re getting tired of your regular garden salad.

Don't fear potatoes! They are full of vitamins and minerals just like the other veggies.  They may be starchy but they have only a fraction of the starch of bread or pasta.  As well potatoes are a whole food, unrefined and unprocessed, unlike bread and pasta.

Potatoes are a perfectly acceptable vegetable as long as they aren't deep fried, despite what some will tell you.  Potatoes have 1/3 of the carbs and calories of pasta when comparing 1 cup of potatoes vs. 1 cup of pasta.  And they are full of vitamins and minerals, so enjoy these potato wedges guilt free!
