Nutrient and Flavor-Packed Sweet Potato

Happy Tuesday! I finally have some time to post one of my all-time FAVORITE recipes!!! I went through a stage where I think I ate this every night for dinner for almost two weeks straight. AKA it is CRAVE-WORTHY and delicious with 20 g of protein, healthy fats, complex carbs, and it’s vegetarian! Also- it’s basically one giant multi-vitamin-all the health packed into one tasty meal! This recipe is written as a single servings, so for however many people you are feeding, just multiply it! And you know me, it’s ridiculously easy to make.

Grocery List

1 Sweet potato of choice (purple is my favorite)

1/2 C Meatless crumbles (Lightlife, Morning Star, Boca are all great brands)

1/4 C Daiya cheddar cheese shreds

1/4 C yogurt of choice (to keep entirely vegan do plain Silk yogurt). I personally like Chobani or Siggi’s!

1/3 Avocado, sliced (HINT: keep the pit inside the avocado to preserve freshness while you store the leftover)

Chives to top

Directions

  1. Bake the sweet potato:
    • Oven: Preheat oven to 400F, pierce sweet potato all around with a fork, bake about 45 minutes-1 hour.
    • Microwave: Pierce sweet potato and place in a microwave safe dish with 1/2 cup of water. Cook 6 minutes, then flip (with a fork, it will be incredibly hot) and cook for an additional six minutes.
    • While the sweet potato is baking, move to step 2
  2. In a small pan over medium heat, add meatless crumbles and cheese. **Cheese withstands high temperatures. Stir in the pan until meat is fully cooked- about 4 minutes.
  3. Cut your sweet potato in half and stuff with meatless crumbles/cheese mixture and top with yogurt/chives/avocado

THAT’S IT!

Guac & Egg White & Toast

DJ asked me yesterday if I blogged this snack yet. I realized I hadn’t, but why the heck had I not?! This is one of our favorites. Something we crave. It also inspired my Halloween costume this past year. We eat it nearly daily, and I think you will enjoy it too! This is something else we will whip up for guests as a quick snack, and later when they are home I’ll get a text asking for how exactly to make them again. There is not much to it, but I promise the taste will blow you away!

Ingredients

  • 4 hard boiled eggs
  • Bread of choice (I prefer Dave’s Killer Grain Bread or Sprouted Flax)
  • Spicy Guacamole (Or plain avocado)- I like Wholly Guacamole, but it really doesn’t matter. I use whatever the store has.
  • Sea Salt and Pepper
  • Hot sauce of choice. *Optional

Directions 

  1. Using your perfectly hard boiled eggs and clean hands, open the egg by dividing it in half and popping out the egg yolk. **If having difficulty removing the yolk, just run the egg under a little cold water.

2. Put your toast in the toaster and toast away!

3. Spread 1 guac packet/avocado over the two slices of toast. I usually split a packet of Wholly Guacamole between the two pieces. If using a multi-serving pack, use about 2 TBSP per slice.

4. Put two egg whites on each slice of toast. I break them apart so they can lay (lie?) on the toast evenly.

5. Add sea salt, pepper, and hot sauce (great without hot sauce as well)
