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! 

Omg I made sweet potato fries 👀 I can’t believe I used to boil potatoes before baking them when it’s so much easier to just chop (toss with salt, Italian herbs and a little oil) and bake at 450, leave for 25 minutes *flip* 20 more minutes! They are so good they don’t even need keptchup (I’ll still prolly use ketchup tho) 😻✨🍟

Vegan sushi bowl

1 tbs dry pan toasted sesame seeds
½ small avocado (or ¼ large)
½ sheet roasted nori, ripped into small bits
Shredded cucumber
¾ cup cooked brown rice
½ soy sauce

I mushed the avocado with soy sauce then mixed it with my rice. Once rice was coated I added sesame seeds, nori, and cucumber. Would have been amazing with some crispy tofu and a side of steamed edamame.

#STRESSLESS AUTUMN GREEN SMOOTHIE.

This post was created in partnership with Rescue. All opinions are my own.

Bonne Bell lip gloss. A tattered copy of Neruda’s The Captain’s Verses. Licorice pastilles. Matte red lipstick. These were all purse standbys for me at one moment or another throughout my life. But even the most addictive of them (the Bonne Bell and the Neruda, of course) eventually fell away. From the time I was in middle school to this very moment, though, there has been one singular item that I always carry with me: Rescue Remedy. I inherited the penchant from my mother, who saw it as a cure-all for just about everything.

Teacher yells at you? Rescue Remedy. Car breaks down? Rescue Remedy. Get in a fight with your mom? Rescue Remedy. Boy is mean to you? That pie didn’t work out right? Your kid come home with a ruined lunch box? RESCUE REMEDY. My mom was a natural healer par excellence, never leaving home without a coterie of homeopathics. I took note. I listened. I learned. I assimilated.

Fundamentally, this meant imbibing the literal and figurative understanding that plants were our allies. The Bach Flower Remedies took distillations of various flowers and leaves into alcohol and drew out their innate healing qualities.
