Twice Baked Sweet Potato Rounds

...Cold sweet potatoes. I eat cold baked sweet potatoes out of the refrigerator at 5 o'clock in the morning as a pre workout snack or as a post workout breakfast. I'll throw them in a ziplock bag and drag them around in my purse for a quick snack. I love them with peanut butter, raisins, apple sauce, and cinnamon. I like them with beans, creole spice, and tahini sauce. I love them with tofu, broccoli, and quinoa. I love them in soups or loaded like a baked russet potato. I pretty much love any form of sweet potatoes. Baked, boiled, steamed, microwaved or however it is prepared...

Tempeh Bacon Avocado Arugula Sauerkraut Sandwich

I love a good old sandwich. Ezekiel 4:9 bread, vegetarian protein (oat burgers, tempeh, or hummus), veggies, sauce, done. I also love sauerkraut and it made an extra pickle-y addition to a sandwich that already had pickles in it. Double the pickles double the fun.

Carrot Dogs On The Grill

Celebrate the 4th of July this year grilling a hot dog that won't lead to colon cancer! Instead these carrot dogs could help PREVENT cancer, heart disease, infection, stroke, all the while improving your vision, skin, and teeth! I'm talking about Carrot dogs! To be clear, these do not taste like meat or veggie meat. These carrot dogs are their own thing and I love it! I feel like I'm eating a hot dog and I get that hot dog fix but instead of chewing down processed meat or processed fake meat I get more fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Eat more plants. Crap like a champ!

Peach Ice Cream

Another 5 minute dessert for the books! As you know I have a love/hate relationship with peaches... and sometimes peaches don't love me back. If that's the case then I freeze the subpar devils and try to figure what else to do with them! When I was about 8 or 9 years old my family spent 5 weeks traveling around Australia and New Zealand. We spent 1 whole week at a college while my dad was teaching a class (or something... it was a long time ago). We ate at the school cafeteria everyday and the one thing that sticks out the most to me about that whole trip (besides the beaches, koalas, and kangaroos) was that this cafeteria had peach soft serve ice cream. I had a delicious cone everyday and it was divine. I'd never heard of peach ice cream before! I'd tried plenty of varieties that included chocolate, but peach ice cream? What is this? Well, I don't eat normal ice cream anymore... but I still make my own version of peach ice cream. Easy and creamy the way ice cream should be!

How To: Crockpot Beans

If eating beans causes you stomach distress then it is because you aren’t eating enough beans! Your gut bacteria changes with the foods that you eat so if you regularly consume pizza and ice cream and you aren’t regularly eating beans and broccoli or kale then your gut will be lined with pizza and ice cream bacteria and it won’t like the new bacteria associated with beans and broccoli or kale. This will lead to stomach distress. If you’re having issues with stomach indigestion then it’s probably because you are not eating enough beans and broccoli or kale! Start changing your food slowly and your gut bacteria will transition over to being used to healthy foods and soon enough the beans won’t be the issue any more. Here are 3 tips to help your stomach adjust to beans...
