Roasted Sweet Potatoes 

There are one million and one ways to make roasted sweet potatoes. They are one of the most versatile vegetables and can be dressed up in many ways ranging from savory to sweet. Here is just one way that I like to prepare these for meal prep. 

Ingredients 

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 

Seasoning blend: 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp black pepper, ½ tbsp lemon granules, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp freshly ground nutmeg, 1 tsp ancho chili powder, 1 ½ tsp Herbs de Provence, ½ tsp smoked paprika. 

Olive oil 

Directions 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, arrange your sweet potatoes into a single layer. 

Drizzle a layer of olive oil over the potatoes and then sprinkle over the seasoning blend (you may or may not use all of it – if you don’t, save the rest from chicken, it’s incredible). 

Using your hands, toss the potatoes so that they are evenly coated. 

Roast in the oven until the insides are tender when pierced with a toothpick.

NOTE: For meal prep, I tend to “under roast” my potatoes because I do not want them to become too soft after reheating for a meal. 

Divide into meal prep containers after the potatoes have cooled. 

Enjoy! 

It is with great heart that we can heal ourselves and one another. Violence never got us any where and hate only stabbed us in the back, but with love, we will find greatness. Let there be love. Love yourself where you are, love one another as they are and love the world and all it has given us. When you find that love, you will love a life of bliss.

You know sometimes your body won´t be in the game even though your head will be. And that is okay because not all days can be ideal and perfect. So don´t feel frustrated when your mind is set to weight loss but your body craves chocolate or a big plate of pasta. Eat that damn food. Because your body knows what it needs. Eat it without regrets knowing that soon your body and mind will align again and that it is more than okay to nurture your body AND mind, too. Work on yourself but do not forget to enjoy life along the way.
