We know how important it is to keep things fresh when you’re on Ideal Protein Phase -1. With Air Fryers gaining in popularity, we thought we would share with you some ways to more easily roast your veggies for variety.

Roasting vegetables doesn’t have to be hard, in all cases you can simply spray with or toss your vegetables in olive oil.

SInce all Air Fryers aren’t the same – we recommend that you set the cook time to HALF the total cook time to toss/stir/roll the vegetables so that they brown evenly.

Good Luck!
