We prefer our labels to include ingredients that are natural. If you can’t pronounce it or don’t know what a certain ingredient is, ya probably shouldn’t be eating it – that’s our point of view! The fewer ingredients the better if you’re going to opt for something with not-so-natural ingredients.

Remember that whole-foods are the way to go!!! So keep those fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts on hand always.

Stuffed (vegan) Cheesy Sweet Potatoes

This is a fun recipe you can make at home with a few simple ingredients, an oven, and blender!

Ingredients

sweet potatoes
green bean
corn
almond milk
seasonings
lime

Instructions

Step 1: Preheat your oven at 400 degrees. Get out a non-stick pan that will fit your potatoes.

Step 2: Grab a batch of potatoes and cut a few slices about half way through to cook more thoroughly.

Step 3: Once your oven is ready, bake your potatoes for 30 mins.

Step 4: Heat up a non-stick pan on medium heat. Toss your veggies in and cook them for a few minutes to heat them up a bit. Season to your liking.

Step 5: Take your potatoes out after testing softness with a fork. You should be able to easily poke into the potatoes; if you can’t, leave in for another 5 mins and test again- repeat until ready.

Step 6: When the potatoes have cooled some, cut small rectangles into each sweet potato and scoop the mash out into a blender, leaving the skin of the potato to fill. Try to keep the potato skin in tact for an aesthetically pleasing result!

Step 7: Blend up your mash potato with some almond milk and seasonings of your choice. Start light on the milk; the more almond milk you add, the less thick your vegan cheese will be.

Step 8: Fill your potato skins with your cooked veggies and top it all with your vegan cheese! Add seasoning, hot sauce (optional), and lime to your pleasing!

Step 9: Take a picture and send it to me plzzz! Enjoy (-:

Jasmine Rice Recipe

Hey y’all!

Today’s the day I upload my simple jasmine rice recipe.

Rice is a staple in my diet and learning how to cook it quickly and efficiently goes a long way.

Soooo… let’s get rice into it!

Supplies

Jasmine rice
(check that this is the only ingredient on the packaging)

1 pot

1 wooden spoon

Instructions

1. Fill up a pot with water.

For every cup of rice you want to make, add in 1.5 cups of water.

The ratio looks like this… 1:1.5 1 cup of rice, 1.5 cups of water.

To get the amount of water needed quickly, multiple the number of cups you’re making by 1.5 – cool now that we’re clear on the specifics…

2. Add in some oil, and any desired seasonings.

3. Lid your pot.

4. Bring water to a boil using high heat.

5. Once water is boiling, add in your rice.

6. Keep the burner on high heat.

7. Partially lid your pot.

8. Be patient and let the water boil out without touching the rice.

9. Once you cannot visibly see water, use a wooden spoon to turn the rice in a clockwise direction bringing the bottom rice toward the top. I call this fluffing!

10. You don’t want wet rice so allow the rice to cook for a few minutes longer on high heat and then turn off your burner when all looks good.

11. Let cool, plate, snap a pic, and enjoy!

12. Send your creation, some feedback, and any questions to me via email.

Happy eating! ♡
