Back to Basic: Roasted Potatoes
In case you missed my first Back to Basics post all about roasting carrots, let me introduce you to a new series I have going on each week —-> BASICS! I don’t cook elaborate meals at home 99% of the time. 99% of the time I’m creating bowls filled with veggies, starches, fiber, protein, and whatever sauce I have my eye on that day. I keep things simple because everything else in life is so complicated. And I want other people to do the same. Diet culture makes everything feel so complicated so people don’t even know where to start when it comes to making better food choices. So what I hope to do, through Back to Basics posts like this one and by regularly sharing my simple meals on instagram, is to show people that eating healthy is attainable. It’s doable. And the more you stick with keeping things simple, the more you will really get to know your body and it’s needs.
Wow. This got really deep for a post about roasted potatoes.
Speaking of basics, have you tried out any of my fitness programs yet? My Power Program is all about working on basic movements as you progress into harder exercises throughout. And I’m even working on another program right now, which will launch in the summer, that’s so basic (meaning awesome) that you only have to work out 3 times per week! It’s going to be fuuuuuuun! If you see me less on the blog lately, it’s because I’m finishing up the programming and videos for my Power Sculpt Beyond Program so I can get to programming my 3x/week program! Lots and lots and LOTS of programming and filming has been going down in this house this past year (I’ve filmed 250 videos for my Power Sculpt Programs) which means I have less time to write here. BUT I’m sharing a new podcast episode almost every week where I talk in depth about different things going on in the world, and I’m talking to my fitness program members daily in our private discussion forum. So if you ever miss me here, you can chat with me in all kinds of different places. But if you’re thinking to yourself, ‘Why TF would I miss you, Juli. I don’t even know you, you weirdo,’ well that’s fair, too. Either way, I miss you.
Now back to programming!

Love some crispy salty roasted potatoes!! Made these with your carrots to compliment salmon for dinner and everything was delish with plenty of leftovers for lunches.
Hi Juli- I’m so glad you are doing these back to basics blog posts. I roasted a ton of veggies using the super simple roasted carrot “recipe” you posted. I would love to see some basic homemade sauces that can be drizzled over those fabulous leftover bowls. My husband and I have been eating more of these balanced bowls and we love them (and I love that they are so easy to pull together). I also wanted to tell you that you have influenced my life for the better. I have two of your cookbooks and have followed you for a while, but lately you have really resonated with me (starting with the beans!). I’m 53 and still curious and learning, like you! You have such great insight and I’ve even got my daughters following you. And my new favorite saying is “I don’t know sh** about f***” but I can only say this in my head because I have a husband and young-adult children who would be shocked if I said it out loud. 😂 Anyway, keep up the awesome work you are doing and keep shining that positive light!
awwwww thanks for the love, Deanna! i’ll add sauces to my list of things to make for the blog!
