Cinnamon Sweet Potato Bake


2016/05/24 by nikkiledford

One of the defining qualities of an epic breakfast is the scent it creates while cooking. We’ve all experienced the joy of waking up to the smell of bacon lulling us out of our bedroom, the coffee maker emitting its heavenly aroma, and that Sunday morning french toast fills the house with a cloud of cinnamon spice!

This dish fits into that category quite nicely. Last weekend, my husband woke up very curious about what was happening in the kitchen.

For all the grain-free folks who miss the breakfast breads of years past, this bake will satisfy that starchy-comfort foody need we all have from time to time. Enjoy during a weekend brunch or make a large batch to split throughout the week for an easy breakfast!

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 πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
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. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ 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!
