Savory Roasted Carrots

Carrots are a root veggie packed full of natural sweetness, plus they are a good source of antioxidants and vitamins A, C, E, & K.  I love that carrots come in all sorts of colors such as orange, yellow,  purple, white and red!! Carrots are loaded with fiber which is also important for digestive health. They are not short on health benefits including potential to lower blood pressure, boost immunity, and improve eyesight. This carrot recipe is an easy weeknight side dish that is easy to make and will nourish your body. Enjoy!
