One of the greatest ways to improve your health is to eat more vegetables. What really helps me is I cook up a bunch of vegetables at the beginning of the week and then I have them ready to add into soups, salads, fajitas and so many other recipes. 

I typically roast my vegetables by preheating the oven to 425°. I cut the vegetables into bite sized pieces, add a bit of olive or avocado oil and a little salt and cook until they are just soft. some vegetables take a bit longer so if I have hard vegetables like butternut squash or sweet potatoes I typically cook them for 15 min. and then add the rest of my vegetables. 

In the summer it's great to prepare the vegetables on the grill! I have a grill pan that I love to use.
