Nutrition is important for the quality of hair we grow…

Roasted Beets and Carrots
Makes 6 servings
- 6 medium beets (2 1/2 lb. with greens), trimmed, leaving 1 inch of stems attached
- 2 1/2 lb. carrots, cut each carrot in half from the center, then each half cut in half again, lengthwise
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425°F. Place beets in a roasting pan and cover with foil. Roast in the oven, on the center rack until tender, about 1 1/4 hours.
Step 2: Toss carrots with oil and salt and pepper to taste in a shallow baking pan.
Step 3: Remove beets from oven, and set aside. Roast carrots in the oven, on the center rack until tender, about 20 minutes.
Step 4: While carrots are roasting, unwrap beets and, when just cool enough to handle, slip off skins and remove stems. Cut each beet into in half.
Step 5: Add beets to carrots, tossing to combine, and roast until beets are hot and carrots are very tender, about 15 minutes more.
