Weekend Super Food

Weekend Super Food

Sick of the same old weekend roast? (No me neither ???)

However, even seagulls are trying to get some of these new-fangled "superfoods" down our gullet (which if you ask me is just a re-brand of good old root veggies).

I do like the look of these rainbow roasts though, which includes the supposed superfood - Beetroot. Now, us gulls don't usually stray far away from our favourite veg - chips - but with all the iron, folate, nitrates, betaine, and magnesium in the reddest of roots, I think I will give this Scampi with Rainbow Roasts a go as a weekend treat.

(I've even thrown in a handful of kale to make it exra healthy yummy)
