  • Quinoa Sweet Potato Tacos

    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, Corn, Black Beans, Egg and Avocado

    I could eat sweet potatoes every day and never get tired of them. Usually I switch the flavors around, from sweet to savory. In this oven-roasted sweet potato recipe, I use garlic powder and hot Hungarian paprika for a little kick. The black beans add a nice source of fiber, and the egg some extra protein. Avocado adds healthy fats. This is a great vegetarian dish for lunch or dinner, and goes well with any salad as a side.

I always roll my eyes (and you should too) at the price of avocado toast on restaurant menus – $15? No way. It is so incredibly easy to make at home! The toppings on avocado toast seem to be endless. This recipe uses fresh chopped red bell pepper and cucumbers to add a crunch factor to the creamy, smashed avocado base. Avocados are known to be a healthy fruit because of their healthy fats (monounsaturated), fiber and B vitamins. They keep you feeling fuller longer, which can help with weight loss,…
