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! 

🌶🌶🍞🥗Lunch today is a massive spicy “tuna” salad sarnie. Super tasty and made without oil!

Recipe for “tuna” spread (makes two very generous portions or four regular portions)

1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
¼ cup canned sweet corn
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp black pepper
1-3 tbsp cholula (the garlic one works best)
1 tsp maggi liquid seasoning ( or just salt)
2 tbsp fresh cut chives
2 tbsp fresh cut dill
Optional 30g of low fat hummus to bind.

Just used a potato masher to crush the chickpeas (you still want some texture so try not to go mad)
Then all you gotta do is add everything give it a mix and stick it on some bread ( I am the queen of complicated recipes 😂)

I added some red onion, spinach and sriracha to make it fancy 😜

Whole plant foods is what I choose to nourish my body with daily 🌱 Eating foods grown by mother earth 🌎 make me feel: vitalized, healthy, vibrant, grounded, clear, and ALIVE ✨ to name a few… This is just a very small portion of what’s in our kitchen! Ps. Filming a NEW healthy treat recipe video today 🤗 stay tuned!!

this was almost too aesthetically pleasing to eat 😍

I split an oven roasted sweet potato and stuffed it with grilled corn and guacamole! Topped with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and a salad bed 👌🏻

just another example of how easy, cheap and delicious being vegan can be 🌱

🍏🍏🍞🍞Breakfast today 2 Granny Smith apples topped with cinnamon & multigrain toast with roasted red pepper hummus.

Hummus is a great alternative to butter/margarine on toast if your looking for a healthier choice with minimal effort 👌

🍍🍍🍍this is without question the best pineapple I have ever eaten! So so sweet and juicy and fresh out the refrigerator 🤤🤤😍

When I was a kid my dad would always bring home random “exotic” (how things have changed haha) fruit for us to share as a treat on weekends like melon, ugly fruit and pine apple. To this day I still think of them as fancy and feel fancy AF when I eat them haha. Perfect on a hot sunny day 😍☺️☀️🌴
