MEAL OF THE MONTH FROM REVIVE WELLNESS: Autumn Roasted Salad

We are focusing on mindfulness this month; the word mindful meaning to be conscious or aware of something. Further, it can relate to being present in the moment, focusing on one task at a time, and as it relates to eating: being in tune with hunger and fullness cues.

A simple way to increase your nutrition (and often satisfaction with a meal) is to be mindful of what is in season. Fruits and vegetables are fresher and have more flavour when eaten in season. Roasting autumn’s veggies brings out their flavour even more- give it a try in this salad.
