If you aren’t much of a veggie fan, perhaps explore different ways to cook and season vegetables. Roasting is simple and delicious way to prepare veggies. The prep time is minimal— wash and chop veggies. The most time is actually spent just waiting for the food is finished. So if you are a multi-tasker or busy doing housework, great! Pop those veggies in the oven– go read a book, finish some work, do a workout video in — but just be sure to pop your head in the oven every so often to make sure nothing is burning!
