Seasonal: Roasted Golden Beets
I recently lost 60 pounds over the past year and a half, all without counting calories or points. Just a few simple changes made all the difference:
* cutting out sugar
* adding veggie juices
* eating smaller portions (eating just an extra 100 calories a day can lead to a 10 pound weight gain per year!!)
While on my weight loss journey, I designed a unique, stylish, and smart way to be health-savvy and in control: Simple Portion Bowls. I wanted something beautiful to motivate and carry me through to “healthy.”
I am taking pre-orders through Kickstarter here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/153909474/simple-portion-bowls-just-measure-what-matters Make 2013 YOUR YEAR, the year you started living the happy, healthy life!! (with pic of Simple Portion logo and Kickstarter logo)”
One snack I love to place in my Simple Portions Bowls are the Roasted Golden Beets!
1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.) Cut off stems and peel beets.
3.) Cut in half, then thinly slice them, about 1 mm thick.
4.) In a large bowl, toss the sliced beets in the olive oil and cumin.
5.) Lay the beets flat in a single layer on a baking sheet (or two), lined with tin foil.
6.) Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
7.) Enjoy them warm or cool/crispy!
