Spicy Chicken & Sweet Potato Bowl

protein packed and freaking delicious. 

Ingredients 

2 lbs chicken breast, cut into chunks 

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks 

Seasoning blend: granulated onion, granulated garlic, ground ginger, Hawaiian lava salt, Mexican oregano, cumin, sweet paprika, black pepper, crushed red pepper, and chili powder. 

Bowl ingredients of your choice. I used purple cabbage, sweet peppers, Roma tomatoes, avocados, cilantro, lime, and Whole30 compliant taco sauce or salsa of your choice. 

Safflower or coconut oil for cooking. 

Directions 

Par-cook your potatoes for about 5 minutes in the microwave until they are fork tender. When ready, crisp in a pan with a small amount of oil. Use some of your seasoning blend to season the potatoes. 

Heat oil over medium heat. Once hot enough, cook chicken chunks and season liberally.  As a matter of preference, you can cook the chicken in the sauce or just add it at the end. 

Once potatoes and chicken are both done, assemble bowl however you’d like.

Enjoy! 

Hey!!! So as you probably know i’m back from my holiday trip with my family! It was great!!! We had lots and lots of fun!!! And i wanted to post it cause when we were there i said to myself I HAVE to take a picture drinking a blue drink, i just HAVE to. It was my duty as a Karamatsu girl! So it was hilarious cause, you see, i don’t drink, i don’t like the taste of alcohol, and when i was there i ordered this really good drink called Bananamama (freaking delicious) but without alcohol. So, i didn’t know anything about drinks but i had to order a blue one, so i asked for just that! There was this really nice lady who would go asking if anyone wanted anything to drink, she was really pretty and nice, and so i asked her “Do you have any blue drinks?” and she was like yes of course, we have the… and i don’t remember the name, it was something about coco with something else, and i was just like “…sure. But it’s blue right?”

So there it is! I was so happy with my blue drink!! And it wasn’t bad, the first taste was realy good, i just didn’t like the after taste of alcohol in it.

Anyway, it was fun to just go and ask for a blue drink XD

I’m collecting awesome video recipes and putting them HERE. I just added one of my favorites by Isa Chandra… Roasted Red Pepper Mac n Cheese! It’s so freak’n delicious. If you have any vegan recipes you think I should add, let me know!

So I tried making @lvl1-chef’s butterscotch cinnamon pie recipe today. It took about 6 hours to finish and an extra two of waiting. I made everything from scratch.

So how’d it turn out?

IT’S ONE OF THE BEST PIES I’VE EVER MADE. My 78 year old nana said it might be the best pie she’s ever had.

The crust tastes like a butter cookie, it’s so sweet and compliments the filling so well - even with my “too salty” whipped cream it’s taste shines through beautifully, actually complimented by the salt. I am so, so glad I made this pie today, because now I get to enjoy it.

Thank you @lvl1-chef for this recipe, goat mom would be so proud.

You wanna be healthy and shit? Get out of this queue in Starbucks, head home and make a freaking delicious smoothie. And remember to put on a lid before you turn on the blender.


#1 ‘It couldn’t get more tropical than this’

  • 1 grapefruit
  • ½ of a fresh pineapple
  • 1-2 cm of fresh ginger

      Throw everything into a blender, add some water. Blend until smooth. This smoothie helps with swelling, excretion of toxins and accelerates digestion of protein&carbohydrates.


#2 ‘I’m greening right now.’ (horrible joke sorry not sorry)

  • 1 lemon
  • 1 apple
  • a handful of fresh parsley
  • 1-2 cm of fresh ginger

Add water. Blend it up. It contains so much vitamin C that it’s close to an overdosage.


#3 ‘Chia heaven’

  • a handful of spinach
  • a handful of kale
  • coconut water
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

Blend until smooth. Chia seeds are the great source of potassium, zinc, calcium, copper, omega-3&omega-6 fatty acids, PROTEIN! Just trust me, you’ll love it. Chia seeds make a smoothie thicker which means not getting hungry right after drinking it!


#4 ‘It ain’t sweet, but hey, it’s healthy, right?’

  • 1 tomato
  • 2 celery sticks
  • ½ of a red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of flaxseed oil
  • a pinch of salt&pepper
  • ½ a cup of water

Blend. So much potassium. So much vitamin C. It helps with inflammations, it helps with everything. Drink it once in a while.


#5 ‘I really crave a chocolate bar right now’

  • 2 bananas
  • milk of your choice – it can be almond, cow’s milk, oat, whatever you’d like!
  • 2 tablespoons of cacao powder
  • 3-4 dates (depends of how sweet you like it)
  • a teaspoon of smooth peanut butter (you cannot go wrong with PB)

Blend, blend, blend. Enjoy your chocolate drink.


Give up on that Starbucks coffee, get yourself a smoothie, make your body happy. A portion of fiber a day, makes your body’s problems go away (I came up with this a second ago). ENJOY!

ok so i was searching up the meaning of seokjin’s name (金碩珍 in chinese characters / hanja) and it’s so accurate??? like

碩 (”seok” in korean / “shuò” in mandarin):

  1. large (he’s tall and has broad shoulders)
  2. well-educated (he’s a university student)

珍 (”jin” in korean / “zhēn” in mandarin):

  1. precious (which he obviously is)
  2. loved and cherished (which he is and should be!!!)
  3. rare and valuable (which he also is)
  4. delicious food (…an eat jin prophecy)

I tried to make this vegan pasta sauce that is supposed to be healthy out of nutritional yeast, reduced fat coconut milk, and pumpkin and oh god the coconut milk is so perfumey I couldn’t stomach it but Bell thinks it’s freaking delicious so at least it won’t get wasted 🤷‍♀️

Day 119 / April 24, 2015

Sorry for my absences this week. it’s midterm exam time again, and i have finals at the end of next month >.> but here’s a quick rundown of my activity the last few days:

Monday was a 5 km, 3 laps (1.5 km, approx) around the trails

Tuesday was a lazy day because my foot was acting up :(

Wednesday I did good… 2.5 laps on the figure 8 circuit (just under 3 km per lap) for 8 km

Thursday I had to work, but I walked both ways again and got some excercise in there :)


I also made some freaking delicious energy bars on wednesday, using seeds and nuts and agave syrup/honey. I have chia seed and mocha, almond and coconut and peanut butter and chocolate… they’re like KIND bars, except I made them at about 1/5 of the cost and more protein/fibre and micronutrients per bar :)

Breakfast: chocolate protein nicecream and a big and juicy peach
Lunch: pancakes with fresh fruit and chocolate protein sauce and more some more grapes than pictured
Snack: something asian made out of sesame and coconut flour, filled with sweet bean thing (it was freaking delicious!!)
Dinner: veggies, lupine chunks and white basmati rice
Little night snack (not pictured): some nuts and raisins

Okay I do still love canon Bill as a character, he’s seriously one of the best villains in cartoon- or heck, television in general- history.

But OH my god is it satisfying to watch him get foiled by something he likely cannot control.

No way did he put that field up to trap himself. He’s forced to rely on people he captured to get him outta prison, and it’s SO. FREAKING. DELICIOUS.

GET REKT, DORITO
