Organic Roasted Rainbow Carrots (great substitutes for potatoes) are full of flavors, delicious, highly nutritious and simply divine. This beautiful and colorful dish infused with zaatar Moroccan spices is very easy to make, wonderful by itself or with Lemon-Saffron Millet Pilaf. It's even more delightful with a glass of red wine.

1/2 Cup slivered almonds
1/2 Cup dried cranberries
1 Tsp. Moroccan spice zaatar

1/3 Cup olive oil

2. Peel carrots, wash and damp dry to remove moisture. 
3. Cut into 2 inch strips. 
4. In a bowl mix carrots, almonds and cranberries with the sea salt, zaatar spice and olive oil until lightly coated.
5. Spread the carrots  evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes.
6. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!

Simplify Your Life!


Simplify Your Life!

Living simply results in a rewarding lifestyle because it’s based on mindful consumption.  Simplicity is a call to experience inner richness and show gratitude for the things we already have rather than constantly struggling to acquire more and more stuff, which we don’t need. Excess not only results in mind and environmental clutter, but it also inhibits paths to happiness and prosperity.

As an experiment, try living for a month without purchasing anything non-essential. Chances are you will realize that you don't need to constantly acquire new things to be perfectly happy.

Living mindfully leads to a lifestyle of gratitude. The idea of “less is more” is never more applicable than when living simply. When making do with less, the attitude of gratitude
naturally extends into all areas of life, including being grateful for life itself.

Happy Simplifying!
