Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

One of the most important things to many people when it comes to eating healthy is getting dinner on the table in about 30 minutes. I’m all about helping you do that. I enjoy cooking a whole lot. I’m totally happy to spend extra time in the kitchen because it’s a sort of meditation for me. I realize that isn’t everyone’s reality though.

People are busy and many get off work late. When that happens, it’s tempting to order take-out or microwave whatever you can find. May I suggest you try this yummy meal instead. Consider this a form of self-care. It comes together quite fast and is nourishing to boot which means you’ll feel better and have more energy to get back to your to-do list.

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries
Serves 4

Sweet potato fries:

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, washed and cut into fry shape
  • 1/4 tspΒ salt

Black bean-corn topping:

  • 2 cups of black beans
  • 1/2 cup of frozen corn
  • 1/2-3/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Toppings, etc.:

  • 2 onions, sliced
  • salsa
  • lime wedges
  • avocado slices
  • chopped romaine, other mixed green, or sauteed kale
  1. Place sweet potato wedges on a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat. Sprinkle with salt and some water to help steam cook.
  2. Place potatoes in an oven set to 375 degrees. Bake for about 25 minutes, until cooked through.
  3. While those are cooking, slice onions.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat with a little water in it (or use a tiny bit of oil such as grapeseed or coconut). Once hot, add onions and cook stirring occasionally. If cooking greens, add them into this pan for the last few minutes of cooking.
  5. Meanwhile, place all ingredients for beans in a pot and warm through.
  6. Once, everything is done cooking plate it up.
  7. Start with fresh greens, add the sweet potatoes, beans, onions (and kale, if using), salsa, avocado slices, and a squeeze of lime juice.

Hot tip! To increase iron absorption from plant foods, be sure to eat iron-richΒ foods (like beans and whole grains) with something rich in vitamin c. This meal has all the goods since sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and lime all contain vitamin c.

  • Raise your hand if you love sour cream but you don't love dairy!! πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Sour cream belongs on tacos in my opinion and this tofu sour cream is so easy to whip up and tastes kind of perfect as a sub for dairy sour cream. ...
Recipe: 
1 package of tofu (any will do - I usually buy firm)
~ 2 Tbsp Lemon juice
~ 1Tbsp Apple cider or red wine vinegar
1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt
1. Combine and blend all ingredients into a blender until smooth and creamy. 
NOTE: I like to start with about half of the lemon juice, vinegar, and salt and then blend, taste, and adjust flavors as I go until I get the right sour creamy flavor. 
2. Chill and enjoy!
  • Kinda diggin' this new almond milk sweetened with banana puree. It's like a grown up version of the Nesquik banana milk and I'm here for that.
  • HELLOOO EVERYONE!! πŸ’•
Dang, it's been awhile since I've posted consistently on here. I'd like to change that. To be honest, I struggle with allowing my true personality to show up on here which makes it difficult for me to want to be on here much. I sometimes worry about what others might think of the things I share so I end up not sharing anything! But I don't want to do that. I find joy in being able to help motivate and educate people on taking charge of their own health and eating their dang fruits and veggies. While I do that in my real day to day life, I'd like to bring that work on here a bit too because I generally enjoy the people I connect with on this platform. .
TL;DR - Hello again. Instagram is weird. But I like it anyway and plan to be better about posting consistently about plantbased eating and the evidence behind it and a little bit more about me. βœŒπŸ’œ
  • @thedomramirez and I had some fun making some banana sushi for dessert. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ Simply cover banana in nut butter and roll in toppings of choice.

We are freezing some for those times we want a sweet snack.

I bet these would be a lot of fun to make with kids, too.

There's no room for single use! Literally, there's NO MORE ROOM on our planet for single use. .
If you have to take on packaging, make sure you are reusing those containers! Just because the product is gone doesn't mean the value is. You not only bought yourself food but also a re-usable container..so get your money's worth! .
Our recycling system is broken but you can be the solution...every day you #reuse and #refill. .

  • No need to complicate healthy eating. Leftovers make lunches a snap. Today's lunch was a bowl of leftover steamed veggies and roasted potatoes with salsa on top. On the side, I had two seaweed brown rice cakes with mashed avocado, hummus, salsa, sauerkraut, and warmed refried beans from a can. Easy and ready in 5 minutes and full of fiber, protein, and micronutrients.
