National Sweet Potato Day
Do you guys know that April 5th is National Sweet Potato Day? That’s cause for celebration…more on that later!
I actually had a little trouble with this one. My blender was dirty and I didn’t feel like cleaning it out so I used my food processor, which did not “process” this as well as I would’ve liked. I also think I used too much cocoa powder.
Mid-morning, I snacked on some nuts with coffee 🙂
For lunch, I made a salad with carrots, a leftover chickpea patty, and some pine nut hummus.
I also ate a juicy orange with lunch. I just realized I got quite a bit of orange in my diet today!
The whole experience allowed me to learn how to live without something and now that it’s back in my life, I don’t need to eat them so much that the special-ness wears off. I only bought two bars to have this entire week!
For dinner, I had only one thing on my mind. Couscous!
I love couscous and every now and then I get a big craving for it, which is usually when I go ahead and buy some. It doesn’t have as much fiber as other grains, but it sure it tasty!
And of course, I had a sweet potato in honor of National Sweet Potato Day (thanks Lindsay for letting me now about this important food holiday)!
What was the best thing you ate today?
