Top 10 Recipes From 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, I thought I would share my top 10 recipes from the year! Thank you for being here, and I hope you enjoy these reader favorites!

Top 10 Recipes from 2018 -

It’s been another amazing year here on The Roasted Root! I can’t tell you how grateful I am for your presence and thank you from all of my soul fibers for being a part of this experience.

As is a tradition on this site, I am posting my top recipes from the last 365 days, along with my intentions for the coming year.

To be completely honest, 2018 was a difficult year for me — oddly full of loss — and therefore also a year change, growth and self-discovery.

In order to heal, rejuvenate, and reinvigorate from a tough year, my intention for 2019 is to enjoy new meaningful lighthearted experiences.

And to laugh vigorously.

To fall wholeheartedly in love with life again and to welcome, not fear, the huge emotions that go along with doing so.

I’m going for rebirth here, folks.

They say happiness = reality – expectations. I couldn’t agree more. For this reason, I intend to make a conscious effort to take things as they come…enjoy the baby steps, ditch the expectations, and to identify when I’m living through a lens of fantasy versus reality.

So in 2019, I aim to travel to my nomadic heart’s delight, improve my Jiujitsu skills, form enriching deeper connections of all types, play in the mountains, simplify, read more, do more good for others, and speak my truth with unwavering courage.

And what about you, m’dear? What are you looking forward to in 2019?

Food-wise, it’s been another epic year. Our Greatest Hits are some majorly mouth-watering, clean and nutritious eats…I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed these recipes as much as I!

And now, without further adieu, here are my…
