My “Favorite Fall” Recipe

18 Oct

Over the past few weeks, Erik and I have recommitted our lives to being healthy… and not just in the sense of working out but also in nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle, that will not only affect us, but our four daughters as well.

I have become very passionate about learning the philosophy of nutrition and clean-eating. For someone who has struggled all my life with weight and bad eating habits, I was beyond ecstatic to find a nutrition program that allowed me to eat and not feel guilt. I have realized how and WHY I was doing everything wrong in the past. I am so thankful that I no longer “fear food” but embrace meal prepping, eating amazing foods and also incorporating some gnarly workouts that are already transforming my physical body.

So periodically, I will be posting a recipe that is easy to make, falls under the nutritional guidelines of clean-eating and one I personally love.

Right now my favorite is: Homemade Baked Sweet Potato Fries.  I am addicted! They are great to pack in your purse when you are on the go, eat with lunch and dinner… or have as a sweet treat in the evening without feeling guilty. Love. Love. Love! So, here is how you make them.


– 3 to 4 sweet potatoes peeled
– 1/4 cup light olive oil (I use Trader Joe’s Grapeseed Oil)
– 1/2 teaspoon paprika
– 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
– 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

– Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F
– Cut the potatoes lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick matchsticks
– In a plastic ziplock bag, toss the potatoes with the oil, kosher salt, paprika and cinnamon.
– Toss until all potatoes are covered in with the ingredients

– Spray a baking pan with cooking spray
– Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the baking pan and place in the oven for 30 minutes or until you feel they are crispy enough (I recommend turning them every 10 minutes, so each side is evenly cooked)

Let cool, serve and ENJOY! Easie Peasie. Delicious and Healthy… it is a win-win for everyone. Oh and your house will smell like all the greatness that is FALL.

Many Blessings ~Summer
