Almost everyone craves sweets, and many people gain weight as a result of consuming too much white sugar in their foods. A healthy and enjoyable way to reduce sugar cravings and lose weight is to add naturally sweet foods like root vegetables to the daily diet.

Sweet vegetables soothe the internal organs of the body and energize the mind. And because many of these vegetables are root vegetables, they are energetically grounding, which helps to balance out the spaciness people often feel after eating other kinds of sweet foods. Adding in sweet vegetables helps to crowd out less healthy foods in the diet.

Variations can include other vegetables in the same family: turnips, winter squashes like butternut and acorn; sweet potatoes, corn and onions.

Yield: 8 servings


4 Medium Beets

2 Big carrots

2 Yams

10 Cloves of garlic

1 Onion

1-2 Parsnips

1 package of Brussel Sprouts

2 Tbsp. Olive Oil


Optional: any fresh seasoning like rosemary


Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Peel beets, yams, carrots, parsnips, onions and chop into 2-inch pieces

Cut brussel sprouts in half; peel skin off garlic cloves.

Lightly coat vegetables with oil and salt and transfer them to a baking dish.

Bake uncovered for about 20-30 minutes or until a knife pierces through a soft texture.
