I have to say, that when people ask me ‘What’s the hardest thing to give up with your food?’ I usually respond with ‘Ice cream and tequila’. I love tequila. LOVE IT!
Therefore, my afternoon snack as inspired by tequila and the fact that I no longer drink alcohol for health reasons (it upsets my tummy). A shot glass filled with 1 TB of Cranmond Cinnamon Granola (gluten free) which is going to be avaliabe for purchase from Ashely’s bake sale (Wednesday), 1 TB of vegan chocolate chips and 1 TB of dried cranberries. The Cranmond Cinnamon Granola is gluten free, vegan, dairy free and has:
- Almond butter
- Maple syrup
- Rice Krispies
- Dried cranberries
I invented a new recipe which I think you all will love..but I don’t think my tummy can take it anymore…no more apples for this girl 😦
Apple/Celery stuffed Sweet Potatoes
It was inspired by this recipe. I took the following and used for the insides.
You will need to roast a sweet potato for about 50-60 minutes at 400/200. Until you can scrap the insides out. Once it’s cooked. Take out of the oven to let it rest while make the inside stuffing. The stuffing to be added to the guts of the sweet potato.
- 1/4 of onion diced
- 1 stalk of celery diced
- 1 apple, peeled and diced
- 1/2 of a chili diced
- 2-3 cloves of garlic pressed
- 1 TB EVOO
Sautee for about 3-5 minutes over medium to high heat
- 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
- 1/2 c. of water
Add apple and water of to the mixture until water reduces. About 6-8 minutes
- Scoop out the guts of the sweet potato and add to the mixture cooking of the stove.
- Spoon the mixture back into the hallowed out shells
Bake for another 10-15 minutes. You can add cheese if you’d like.
It was tasty. I only had about 1/2 of the sweet potato and the fiber from the apple and potato combined started to affect me. Dang it. I ended up having 1 c. of rice krispies, 1/2 c. of granola (all up tonight), 1 1/2 TB of chocolate chips, 1/3 c. of frozen blueberries and 1/2 c. of almond milk for a little post-dinner snack.
I watched A&E TV all night. Intervention and Hoarders was on. I can’t pass up real-life drama. I was happy to see while I was watching tv, painting my nails, and Twittering that Brandon had put up pictures of the hike. Enjoy!
