Hi, guys! It's a Monday and I hope you're having a fabulous work day! Aaah, can you believe Thanksgiving is THIS Thursday? How did that happen?! I'm so excited about it, though, and can hardly wait to spend the day with family and friends. :)
Over the weekend, I had some sweet potatoes on hand from a local gardener and decided to make roasted sweet potatoes.
To make, all you need are a few sweet potatoes, olive oil, cinnamon, salt & pepper and a little honey to drizzle over. There are no measurements, just taste preference as your guide. :)
Wash the potatoes, peel- slice & dice. Place your potatoes in a bowl and drizzle a little oil over, sprinkle several heavy shakes of cinnamon, crank in some fresh pepper and sprinkle a little salt. Mix everything together until thoroughly coated.
Pop in a preheated 400 degree oven and bake until nice and crispy (about 30 minutes). If you want a little extra sweetener you can add a little honey. :) Enjoy! I'm planning to make these for Thanksgiving because they're so simple & nutritious!
I was starving by the time lunch rolled around today so I made a salad. This one had a few slices of organic tomato, mushrooms and cucumber. What did you have for lunch?
After a 40 minute workout this morning (2.25 mile + squats & lunges), I had juice and a few berries for breakfast. All I can say is fresh carrot & cabbage juice is not for the faint of heart! :P
Okay, so I'm doing my best to get in as much pumpkin as I can before Christmas rolls around next week!
