Oven Roasted Broccoli

What do you get when you buy a 24 oz. bag of broccoli for $1.79?

I'm always on the hunt for sales

You get a pretty rockin' snack if I do say so myself! Sprinkled with a few spices and roasted in the oven brings out the nuttiness of this cruciferous veggie.

-Place broccoli on pan, spray with cooking spray, and sprinkle with spices.
-Cook for 15 minutes, or until the veggie starts crisping.

Out of this world amazing!

I've been trying to snack healthier lately. It's not easy to say the least. I love ice cream. Actually, love is not a strong enough word to describe my passion for the stuff. But eating it every night has not been very kind to me. So subbing this late night snack for real, whole foods has made quite the difference.

Question of the Day

Is there a dessert flavor that you can pass up?

I cannot stand the taste of lemon flavored foods. Never have, never will. I have a sour relationship with this sour fruit.

No thank you!
