Baked Sweet Potato

I bought sweet potatoes at Trader Joe's the other day since I've been dreaming of baked potato fries. I made these without oil or salt and they still turned out awesome. Doing well with raw til 4, I especially love dinners. Aside from baking these potatoes, you can steam them and dress them up with spices.
Cut up a large sweet potato into bite sized pieces. Arrange the pieces on a no stick baking sheet, keeping the potato pieces close to one another. Sprinkle paprika, a tiny bit of red pepper and garlic on top and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
Transfer the potato pieces to a plate and eat like you would fries. These are so delicious and tasty, the spices make you forget that they are oil and salt free.
I ate these as a side to a pasta dish I made with a persimmons sauce, recipe is in one of my previous posts from this week.
Have a fabulous weekend! Yesterday it's only 2 weeks until Christmas which means we only have two more weeks until our meditation challenge is over. Check out my Facebook page for meditation updates along with other health and wellness updates.

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
