Favorite way to eat veggies: ROASTED. Favorite veggie to eat roasted: BROCCOLI. Y’all – I’m serious, some extra crispy roasted broccoli is basically like candy to me. No, I’m not weird.

Crank up your oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle some olive oil. Squeeze some lemon juice. Salt and pepper those florets. And you’ve got yourself a super tasty, flavorful, healthy addition to your main dish.

Say it’s Monday night. Your “dinner” has consisted of two salted dark chocolate chip cookies, cheese, and crackers (just in this totally hypothetical, definitely not-a-true-story way). Enter candy —- AKA roasted broccoli (absolutely not weird). And you’ve got some veggies in the mix! Little choices bring you to a healthier life!
