    Quinoa Sweet Potato Tacos

    It wasn’t until fairly recently that I started experimenting with vegetables in my tacos. One time we ordered vegetarian tacos from a local restaurant, and they blew me away. They were so flavorful and tasty! I was always a chicken taco lover, but have come a long way since then after discovering how delicious veggies can be in tacos too. Quinoa is an excellent source of protein, and sweet potatoes are packed with fiber and vitamins. In this vegetarian taco recipe, I add chopped chard into the quinoa when I cook it to add some healthy greens. Some toppings you can add are: corn, red onion, fresh cilantro, guacamole or…

  • Paprika Sweet Potatoes

    Paprika Sweet Potatoes, Corn, Black Beans, Egg and Avocado

Avocado adds healthy fats. This is a great vegetarian dish for lunch or dinner, and goes well with any salad as a side.

Chickpeas are a good source of plant-based protein, and both chickpeas and fiber contain a lot of fiber. Hang in there,…

    Sweet Potato Burrito Bowl

    Craving Mexican food, but without the heavy feeling you sometimes get after? These sweet potato burrito bowls are made without tortillas and cheese. You can have fun with a spiralizer and make sweet potato noodles (my daughter loves them!), and add them on top of brown rice along with black beans, corn, lettuce and guacamole. You can also add other toppings like salsa, sour cream, or fresh cilantro. I like to squeeze fresh lime juice over the whole bowl for a fresh citrus flavor. Let’s talk about rice for a second. Do you know the difference between brown rice and white rice? White rice is very processed compared to brown…
