Roasted Halloween Vegetables
Even though I’m a health food blogger and study nutrition, I celebrate Halloween like everyone else…eating massive amounts of candy and candy corn (my guilty pleasure). But I realize that this isn’t a sustainable way of getting through the month of October, so today I thought we could change it up a bit. These roasted Halloween vegetables are celebratory and spooky, without all the sugar.
