Quotable Quotes - John Robbins

A funny little quote from John Robbins:

“It may be healthier to eat beer and franks with cheer and thanks, than to eat sprouts and bread with doubts and dread.” 

Be happy and confident :-)

John Robbins being the amazing author of many books on vegan diets and planetary health.

GivingThanks Roasted Veggie Recipe!

We can't have an entirely vegetarian Thanksgiving at our house, but we do come close. The carnivores revolt so we have ham or roast beef typically because Turkey isn't popular.  Not exactly traditional, but really it's about GivingTHANKS more than food anyway so why not?!

I'll be making this fabulous winter vegetable roast.  VegNews Publisher Joseph Connelly provided the recipe on their website:

Joe’s Roasted Winter Vegetables
Serves 6
What You Need:
2 large carrots
2 sweet potatoes
2 yams
2 parsnips
1 medium red onion, quartered
1 acorn squash
1/2 large butternut squash
12 Brussels sprouts
4 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
Fresh rosemary, to taste
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
What You Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse all vegetables and cut into 1/3-inch pieces** (the Brussels sprouts can be left whole). In large mixing bowl, add vegetables, garlic, oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place vegetables in large, flat roasting pan and bake 45 to 60 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes, until tender. Serve immediately.    
** I think I'm going to leave my veggies whole like the Shutterstock photo above - beautiful isn't it!?
