I recently learned from my doctor that ingesting soy for an extended time period and every day (like I was) could lead to larger health issues, including cancer and other bad things.

Roasted Vegetables with Rosemary Recipe

Roasted vegetables

The cozy taste of Thanksgiving can be enjoyed any day with this delightful roasted vegetable with rosemary recipe. It is kind of one I made up along the way from many different inspirations and is highly adaptable to what to have on hand. It’s especially nice in the fall and winter when root vegetables such as sweet potatoes, turnips, parsnips and the like are easy to find at the local farmer’s market or grocery store. As I often tell my friends who have asked for this recipe, “if you like the vegetable, it can likely go into this dish”. The more variety the better for the most health and nutrient-filled meal.
