We have Okra,  which so yummy and a nice texture change!!!   Asparagus, and a bag of pre chopped broccoli, carrots and cauliflower……. So we tossed them in a drizzle of olive oil, half a teaspoon of salt and pepper.  I think the simple things are the best!

Something as an adult that I have totally grown to love are beets.   I was at work one day and ran upstairs to Sara’s office terrified because i was sure i was peeing blood.  And she was so sweet and her first question was did you eat beets?  Like this was a common thing!  OmG the things veggies do to your pee haha!

So i went to whole foods and got beets off of there salad bar.  Because I heard roasting beets was a definite labor of love…..well not tonight it is not!

ingredients:

spinach

chopped pecans

beets

red onion

And we dressed it with some olive oil, balsamic vinegar,  salt and pepper!   delicccccc!!!

Put them in a shallow pan and in the oven at 400 degrees for  30mins while the chicken rests.
