Rosemary Lemon Baked Chicken and Veggies

As some of you might have seen on Instagram, I’ve decided to do The Whole 30 program. I struggle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and was looking into managing my symptoms by changing my diet when I stumbled upon The Whole 30. For the last few weeks I’ve been googling and practicing with new recipes, and I have to say that I feel fantastic. I modified this recipe from one I found on The Laughing Spatula. I plan on officially starting the program in the new year- so stay tuned for more recipes and updates! This has become one of my staple dishes. Heat your oven to 400ºF and let’s get started!
