Here’s something to look forward to every fall and winter: roasted root vegetables. Not only are they packed with essential vitamins and minerals, but they’re fiber-rich, which means they’ll keep you feeling full, longer. Perhaps most important, however, is how flavorful they are. Serve alongside any protein or eat as a snack!
