Quick and easy to make, these Roasted Carrots are a great way to get the stubborn veggie-haters in your family to chow down on some vitamins. (I say this as a stubborn veggie-hater myself.) Time was, I’d only eat carrots if they were smothered in Ranch dressing. Ideally, if there was more dressing than carrot. But I absolutely love the flavors in this dish. The hint of lemon and a bit of heat from the ginger (or black pepper, if you prefer). The earthiness of the thyme. Salt for depth. All wrapped around the slightly-sweet, crisp taste of carrots. I love these served with fish, pork/ham, and chicken!
Struggling to Start the Autoimmune Protocol?
Living with chronic illness can be isolating enough without overhauling your lifestyle, often without the full support of family members who don’t want their diets to change. But you don’t have to go through it alone. SAD to AIP in SIX, from Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and author of The Alternative Autoimmune Cookbook Angie Alt, will coach you step-by-step through the transition from the standard American diet (SAD) to the autoimmune protocol (AIP). The six-week course includes coaching from Angie and her team, support from your peers in the program, and reference materials–it’s an incredible bargain compared to private health coaching sessions. If you’re struggling to make the change to the AIP or feeling isolated on your health journey, this is the program for you!
