For Vegans and anyone else who
enjoys healthy living....


My friend Jennifer, that I used to work with, shared her cousin's blog with me recently. Her cousin is dedicated to healthy living and veganism. She is a really beautiful woman and looks like a picture of health! I'd like to do what she is doing... ha ha! Anyway, her website has great recipes and fun healthy living tips. She also is a big fan of cooking with her kids, which I also am a huge advocate of doing. Here is a recipe from her blog below. Check it out:

Roasted Root Vegetable


3 Daikon

3 Turnips

1 Sweet Potato

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp dried thyme

2 tbls maple syrup

1 tbls safflower oil

Sea salt and Pepper to taste

1 Cup dries cherries


Preheat oven to 400.

Peel sweet potatoes, turnips, and daikon. Cut all vegetables into similarly sized small cubes so they cook evenly, and place in casserole dish. Pour remaining ingredients on top, and mix together with your hands. Cook for about 45 minutes. Add dried cherries in after it's finished cooking in the oven.
