EtsyBloggers Carnival – February is American Heart Month

Tamdoll's Valentine Door Hangers

This EtsyBloggers Carnival is hosted by Lois  at http://foxygknits.com

February is Heart Health Month*. What is your best heart healthy recipe?  What do you do to stay heart healthy?  How do you promote heart health?

I think I missed the deadline for this carnival, so going to do a quick post.  A recipe!

Roasted vegetables:  Wash and dry veggies, cut into bite-sized pieces.  Toss with salt, pepper and a dash of olive oil.  Roast at 425°F until brown, 20-25 minutes.  Some of my family’s favorites: cauliflower, celery, onion, red peppers, green beans (beans look kinda gross after they’ve gotten brown and shriveled, but taste really great).  I like squash, yams and potatoes roasted, too.  Then there’s eggplant, cherry tomatoes… I think I’ve roasted every vegetable that’s ever been in my kitchen.  It’s surprising how sweet everything tastes after it’s been in the oven – sometimes it’s hard to get these to the table if everyone starts snacking on them before the meal is served!

What’s your favorite way to serve (heart healthy!) vegetables?

  2. Sometimes the only way I can serve vegetables is the raw way: sliced up tomatoes with a drizzle of olive oil, carrot sticks on the side, chopped up spinach on top of pasta. It's a lot easier for me, especially with picky kids (and a somewhat picky husband).

    I love February. I hope to share a lot of heart-ful (ya get it??) sentiments here and elsewhere with you!

    Much love,
    Richela

  6. Mmmm...your recipe made me hungry at 11:50 at night. Probably not healthy to eat at this time, huh?! Very true, though, that roasted vegetables are sweet and tasty...and of course those are heart-healthy. :-)
