The Warm Veggie Snack You’ll Crave

It’s one of the tasty snacks featured in the Thriving cookbook that’s exclusively available to all members of the 10 in 4 Challenge (our weight loss with self-love program), and it’s consistently called out as a favorite. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s satisfying — and it’s super good for you!

    I’m allergic to carrots but this sounds like an awesome idea to try with other root vegetables. I’m thinking about trying this with turnips later this week.
