Autumn Glow Bowl

The autumn winds have been blustery this week, and I’m adoring being able to bundle up in all my fluffy robes, sweaters, and scarves! When the weather is chilly outside, I love to kick on my oven and cook something that will fill the whole house with the delicious scents of autumn’s seasonal goodies. I’ve been craving a nice big, healthy bowl filled with fresh veggies and vitamins to fill me up while keeping my energy up on these cold fall days. My Autumn Glow Bowl is a beautiful combination of gorgeous ruby red beets, roasted brussels sprouts, golden butternut squash, feta cheese, spicy arugula, heart-healthy walnuts, and nutrient-filled quinoa all tossed in a maple-balsamic vinaigrette. This is a soul-satisfying meal that will keep you feeling that autumn glow all season!
