Yesterday I taught my gluten-free deliciously workshop at 889 Yonge and it was a success! I gave out samples of my homemade gluten-free banana bread and sexy maca balls. Not a single crumb was left so I'm pretty sure they were well loved. After I taught my workshop, I had a lunch meeting at Rawlicious with my creative guru Carol, who makes all my marketing materials look sassy and sophisticated.
By the end of the day (and after a crazy week) I was pooped. However, I needed a second wind because I was having the lovely Elaine, my soul sista over for dinner. She's the kind of friend where you don't have to vaccuum or clean before she comes over, so I knew the meal didn't have to be fancy. I whipped up this kale sweet potato bowl and dazzled it with hemp seeds for some hearty protein and good fat. I knew she would like it because sweet potato is one of her faves, and mine too!
Before I share the recipe, I must do my nutritionist-duty and tell you why kale and sweet potato are so nutrient-dense.
Kale is king!
If you want to take one step today to getting healthier, then eat kale. It's about one of the most nutrient-dense, beautifying, detoxifying foods on mama earth.
I could go on and on about kale, but if you are a nutrition-nerd and want to learn more check out: WHfoods.com. Let's talk about sweet potato, not just for your Thanksgiving dinner!
