Seasonal: Roasted Golden Beets

By: Kelly - Nosh and Nourish

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: 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!
