This gluten free healthy harvest Salad is full of delicious roasted veggies and flavor!
This healthy harvest salad is the perfect main dish or side dish. To make it a main dish just add your favorite protein. I like to pair it with either roasted chicken, baked salmon or a yummy steak.
This harvest salad contains a lot of my favorite in season fall veggies. I try to eat different fruit and veggies based on when they are in season, or grown and harvested during that time of the year.
I love to roast veggies in the oven and then put them together in a salad with a really yummy dressing. There is just something about roasted veggies! The crispy Brussels sprouts are probably my favorite!
Why I eat what is in season:I eat what is in season for a variety of reasons. I like to shop for organic produce and local if it’s available. So- when I use fruit and veggies that are grown and harvested at that time of the year they are available and easy to find. They taste better and have more nutrients because they haven’t been stored for a long time.
Here’s an article by Mind Body Green that lists 10 reasons you should eat in season.
Try a new Seasonal Veggie or FruitHave you tried anything new lately? Growing up I did NOT like Brussel sprouts, parsnips, or turnips. I still don’t like turnips, but I did retry them a few years back, just to check. However, I love Brussel sprouts and parsnips now! My point is that your taste changes. Just like one season you love leopard print and the next you love floral print. Things change, so try something new or again.
Try cooking veggies in a different way! Maybe your Mom made mushy peas so you never liked them. BUT maybe you would really like peas sauteed with mushrooms and onions! Don’t be afraid to eat the rainbow and try new ways of preparing food.
