quick + easy

8 Jan

Happy Sunday! Hope you’ve had a relaxing weekend, mine went by quick! Last night I ran an 8 mile race with my friend Laura, it was a blast!

Today I’m sharing a meal that I’ve been making for about a year now. Caitlin of Healthy Tipping Point inspired me to try it, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

baked beans + sweet potato + kale = delciousness.

simply cook your sweet potato, warm your beans, cook your kale and combine!

what quick and easy meals do you whip up?

    I really need to try kale. I’ve been hearing a lot about it, but just haven’t investigated it at the store. That looks like a really good combination. I like sweet potato with peanut butter on them.

      I cannot get enough kale! The above portion is a whole bunch of it! 🙂 You can steam it, braise it, or bake it and make kale chips!

      I love peanut butter, I’ll have to give the sweet potato + peanut butter combo a try soon. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

      I have 2 butternut squash on top of my fridge right now and when I glanced up at them last night I was reminded of you when you were up to your nose in squash last year, haha!

    I love kale! I love making kale chips or massaging avocado into it! I think soups, smoothies and avocado wraps are my go to!
