I'm so proud.  The hubby and I did not purchase even one fast food meal this week.  In fact, we've been eating really healthy - lots of lean chicken, fish, fruits, and vegetables.  Even the little man has been eating well.  If only I could I get him to eat more healthy stuff, like these roasted vegetables.

With my baby being born and then the holidays, it's been a while since I have been able to order a Bountiful Basket.  It's been almost a year since I've been ordering, and I still can't get over how much I love this co-op.  Baskets always cost $15, unless you want to upgrade to all organic for an additional $10.  You never know what is going to come in the basket, except that it is going to be half vegetables and half fruit.  Here is what was in the basket that I just got.

Pretty good for $15, right?  So, when I was trying to figure out to make for dinner, I decided to through some of my veggies together with some olive oil, Italian seasoning, and salt.  I used zucchini, red and orange bell peppers, onion, tomatoes, and eggplant (which I already had.)  

After 50 minutes in the oven, these roasted vegetables were the perfect side dish.  We like roasted vegetables so much, that sometimes, they're all we have for dinner.

Hopefully we can keep up with this whole no fast food thing!
