Do you ever get tired of eating the same foods prepared the same way day after day? Ask me and I’ll tell you that I certainly do! This is one of the many reasons why I am always in the kitchen concocting various ways to eat the same foods by simply preparing them in different ways or combinations. For instance, instead of grilling chicken, baking a sweet potato, and steaming vegetables, I’m going to throw them all together into one dish: a Sweet Potato Stew!
This dish is perfect for the cold winter months and is so simple to make! Plus, once it’s cooked it’s so convenient to put in a Tupperware and take with you wherever you need to go. If you have leftovers, freeze it in individual containers for a quick and easy meal that simply needs to be heated.
Keeping our bodies in shape is hard work… and, yes, it absolutely does mean making sacrifices when it comes to the foods that we choose to eat! However, the key is to still enjoy the foods that you love by simply recreating them into a healthy version. That’s what I’m here for! I’ll take the guesswork away from you and bring you new recipes each and every week! It’s all about being creative with good-for-you foods!
