Recipe: Turmeric Oatmeal

SAMSUNG CSC

I came back from Mammoth on Sunday and woke up Monday with a hor.ri.ble cold, so I was trying to figure out something that was both warming and anti-inflammatory that I could eat for breakfast. First thing that came to mind was of course oatmeal, and then regarding something with inflammatory-fighting powers I thought duh, turmeric. At first it sounded super weird to me but then I thought about how good I could make this with some added honey and other spices to tone down the intensity of the turmeric.

I ended up adding some adaptogens to manage any unwanted stress, as well as chia seeds, bee pollen, and almond butter for some protein. ANYWAYS, it turned out being SO bombbb and I highly recommend trying it out especially for those colder days! 

OATS:

turmeric-oatmeal

TOPPINGS:

Sprinkle of Black Pepper (helps the absorption of the Turmeric by about 200% !)

Bee Pollen

Pomegranate seeds

Almond Butter

Chia Seeds

Drizzle of Honey

Recipe: White Sweet Potato Fries!

This post is almost a joke because of how easy it was BUT, I wanted to share it with you because it is SO good. ALSO, because they are white sweet potatoes that I used, you can trick your friends/guests/whoever into thinking they’re about to eat some basic fries until they bite into the amazing sweet and salty heaven-ness of the sweet potato flavors. YUUUM. Not to mention they are a healthy snack, especially for an afternoon sweet treat. Basically as sweet as candy. #Blessed.

Things you’ll need:

To Make:

Set oven to 350 degrees, skin potatoes, cut them into thick fry-like shapes, mix in a bowl with the ingredients above, lay them on an oil-drizzled pan, bake for 20-25 minutes, done.

If you’re feelin’ frisky:  go ahead and sprinkle them with some cayenne , chili, or cinnamon!
