Sweet Potato Waffles

At first, sweet potato toast was my obsession… now it’s sweet potato in waffle form! When I visited friends and family in Atlanta last month I ate at many burger joints. When ordering a burger, I would have to order it naked (no bun). After the second burger joint, ordering a burger with no bun got boring real fast and I ended up loading on fries because I was so hungry. 

But then I thought, why not combine fries into a bun that can be healthy, gluten-free, and fun?! And here we are ladies and gents… sweet potato waffles!

To be honest, I feel weird adding this recipe to the blog because it is just too easy to make. Made with only two ingredients, you literally can’t go wrong.

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I tried so hard not to create a copycat PF Chang’s lettuce wrap recipe, but in the end, I have done exactly that. I know, sounds cliche and basic, but I can’t hide the truth.

This recipe has a total of just three easy steps and takes less than 30 minutes to make.

Step 1: Brown the ground chicken

Step 2: Prepare a marinade to drizzle over browned chicken and veggies.

Step 3: Make the most delicious almond butter sauce known to man.

If you are concerned with your sodium intake, I have a great alternative -- I use liquid aminos. If you are not familiar with liquid aminos, it’s a vegetable protein from soybeans.

Creamy Coconut Lime Chicken Thighs

Do you ever get tired of cooking chicken the same way over and over again? As someone who is married to a man that works in the poultry industry BOTH of my hands are up! I would think even someone who develops new recipes every day can fall guilty to this routine.

To get me out of this rut, I often turn to Thai cuisine. One of my favorite thai dishes is Tom Kha Gai soup. If you’ve had this traditional thai soup then you know the flavors of coconut and lime are at the forefront. I’ve taken those components of Tom Kha Gai soup and incorporated it with chicken. So, there you have it -- a delicious Thai-inspired chicken recipe that pairs well with cauliflower rice or sprouted brown basmati rice and broccoli for lunch or dinner!

Fudgy Paleo Brownies

Growing up, brownies were my least favorite dessert. Maybe because the flavors were too rich or the texture was too dry, but nonetheless, I stopped eating them. Of course I would get the judgy looks and sneers but hey, they didn’t taste good to me! That is, until I had a fudgy vegan brownie at this bakery in Atlanta and I was floored! It was like the heavens opened up with arms wide open and sucked me in!
