Quick one for y’all today!

It’s a super easy and super yummy side dish that will pair wonderfully with any main entrée. Seriously, this goes great with chicken, fish, beef, lamb, pork… even eggs at breakfast! It’s not strict paleo, but you can always omit the cheese if you aren’t “primal” (paleo plus dairy).

Recipe inspired by Kim’s Healthy Eats via Pinterest

Parmesan Sweet Potato Stacks

2-3 skinny sweet potatoes/yams, sliced thinly (I used the slicer attachment on my food processor)
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
leaves of 1 sprig rosemary, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. In a bowl, mix together rosemary, cheese, oil/butter, and salt.
  3. Add sliced yams and mix together with hands to coat evenly.
  4. Using a muffins tin (either sprayed or lined with silicone cups) stack yams in the cups until full.
  5. Bake for 40-50 mins until tops are browned and caramelized.
  6. Let cool slightly and serve (these puppies are HOT straight outta the oven).
  7. Garnish with more parmesan if you love cheese!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
