If the answer is yes, than:

A) You’re not being creative enough.

B) Or, possibly, you’ve eaten them every day for the last two years and you need a break.

No problem. Super easy Paleo Root Veggie Medley to the rescue:

Basic Recipe:

2 Rutabaga, cubed
1 Onion, Sliced
6 Cloves Garlic, peeled
5 Carrots, one inch lengths
3/4 Cup Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Dried Marjoram
Salt and Pepper

Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until fork tender.

Voila! Basic Root Veggie Medley.

Why Stop There?

There’s a million ways to mess with this recipe depending on what’s available. Added bonus is that this stuff is super cheap. Root veggies are easy to find (especially in fall and winter), taste great, and are easy to prepare. Here’s some other ingredients you can throw in and mix and match however you want.

Paleo Root Veggies
Beets*
Turnips
Parsnips
Tarro
Daikon
Parsnip
Radish
Maca
Yucca
(*You want to cook beets separately from other veggies as everything will taste like beets, but once they are cooked you can mix them in)

Cooking Fats
Bacon Fat
Lard
Coconut Oil
Olive Oil
Ghee
Butter

Herbs (fresh is always better, but dried will do here just fine)
Marjoram
Thyme
Rosemary
Oregeno
Cumin

You’re really only limited by your imagination here, so get creative with it.

And as always, baking some winter squash with a little fat, salt and pepper and you’ve got a delicious Paleo starch:

Acorn Squash
Butternut Squash
Spaghetti Squash
