I have been watching what I'm eating and making better choices for a little over 3 weeks now with the help of Weight Watchers and some very supportive friends over at the Papertrey Ink forum who are playing along with me! So far, I have lost 12 lbs and I couldn't be more excited about losing some more! I truly LOVE the program and I LOVE discovering new recipes and foods.
A couple of weeks ago, several people mentioned roasted veggies in a balsamic glaze and how wonderful it was as a quick lunch in a pita! Loved the idea! I was getting tired of my go-to apple walnut salad so I thought I would give this a try this week! And the best part is that I cooked all the veggies at the same time, making my lunches for the rest of the week effortless! Love it!
Here are the veggies- all chopped up and browned beautifully after roasting in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. I simply cut up 2 bell peppers, an onion, a zucchini, baby bella mushrooms, and a package of grape tomatoes. Then, I tossed the chopped veggies in 3 Tbsp olive oil, 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Spread them out on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil and popped them in the oven! The veggies with the glaze are 3 pts. Easy peasy!
