Roasted Roots, Spinach, and Eggs

Good for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and even when you wake up in the middle of the night and sleepwalk to the fridge. This is comfort food. But surprisingly, it’s healthy comfort food. I know– shocking.

For the roasted roots, I like to keep the skin on the potatoes, it gives off an almost nutty flavor. For the seasoning salt, I always uses Morton’s Nature’s Seasoning. It is a yellow bottle with a blue cap. This seasoning alone reminds me of home. My grandma has always used it, my grandpa even calls it “funny salt”. It’s a staple in my family’s home and I put it on everything: sandwiches, soup, vegetables, and meat, to name a few.  I know a lot of people like Lawry’s, but I’ve never enjoyed it over the Morton’s. As I sit here at my desk, I realize I haven’t brought a bottle of my funny salt to work yet- that’s about to change. Oooh, I need Siracha up in this bitch too. I’m slacking over here.
