Best Sweet Potato Oatmeal Ever

What is Fall without sweet potatoes!?

Y’all. This recipe is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I have had this oatmeal for 5 days straight, so you know I am telling the truth. Because potato is such a grounding, starchy vegetable with loads of fiber and protein, it makes this oatmeal extra, extra filling. It has the perfect sweetness and flavor without ANY refined sugar that would make you crash in the late morning. I recommend making a big ol’ pot of it at the start of the week so you can enjoy it for a few days or so that it can be a really easy breakfast for the kids. Also, I strongly recommend actual organic sweet potato vs. canned sweet potato for both flavor and consistency. Also, coconut oil as opposed to any other vegetable oil for a “buttery” flavor.

Mouthwatering Braised Cabbage + Collard Greens

This is a vegan and health-supportive version of a classic Smothered Cabbage and Collard Greens recipe ... and it's pretty amazing! The key is caramelizing the onions correctly (so don't skimp on this step!) AND using your lid for your stove top pan (this is essential for generating enough steam to cook to the greens and cabbage).

Winter Turmeric-y Stew

A ireally turmeric-y + earthy soup and filled with yukon potatoes, carrots, lentils, and shallots. The little dark specks you see is one of my favorite medicinal herbs: nettle leaf! It would really balance out with some (sweet) cornbread, too.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Chilli

winter, cold weather, and advent invite me towards rest and stillness and slower living. this season, i am embracing it. all of it. i am not always so patient, deliberate, and thorough but i am learning to welcome this shift.

these invitations are often quiet -- i wake up pretty early, but my body has been softly telling me it's ok to sleep for 30 more minutes without fear of self-judgement; i am experimenting with baking (something that intimidates me!) and am in the process slowly learning a new skill; and i am stretching myself to cook in a more process-driven way instead of a flavor-driven way, the "how" not solely the "what" ... hence, how this (nearly 2 hour) winter chilli came to be. it's so savory, filling, and comforting. this is my third time eating it this week, so i am going to share the recipe soon. it won't be "quick" (kind of like healing and wellness) but it will be simple + affordable.

stay encouraged.
