When we set out to create the perfect sweet potato fries recipe, we want to go more savory then sweet. We cut the sweet potatoes thick, tossed them in coconut oil, and sprinkled them with fresh rosemary. WOW are they good. They have a great depth of flavor that you just cant get from a white potato. Now that I have tried these fries I will never go back to the traditional white potato kind!

Therefore here at My Clean Kitchen we have been trying to come up with some healthy, tasty, and easy to make lunch options for you. Our latest creation…Whole Wheat BLT Pitas! Hope you enjoy!!!

How is it that something so simple can be so good? Cheese and crackers, tea and honey, chocolate and strawberries..are just a couple of simple combinations that are pure bliss. Well now it is time to add something else to that list. Nut Butter, Apple and Honey Sandwiches. When these three ingredients are combined, the entire universe seems to fall into place. Life makes sense, the sun begins to shine, birds start singing…you get the picture. It is delicious, trust me, just try it.
Remember when you were a kid and you thought Brussel Sprouts were gross? I wonder…did we ever even try them or were we just so pre-programmed to think that way that we just came to believe they were disgusting without even taking a bite? Poor Burssel Sprouts…they never even stood a chance…not with the legions of hating kids and skeptical adults. I think we should all take a stand and change this tragic tide of Brussel Sprout hating! They are delicious! I am talking to you now as a recovering Brussel Sprout hater. Yes…I will admit it. I too once prejudged this poor misunderstood vegetable. But not anymore!
Salads…Delicious…are you crazy? It’s rabbit food! You might be tuning out right now…but hear me out. I am not talking about boring iceberg lettuce salads with some bottled white undescript dressing on them. No. I am talking about beautiful, flavorful, zesty salads. Ones with delicious homemade dressings. Salads that are so full of color and flavor they are pleasing to both the eyes and the pallet! Am I getting too poetic for you? Sorry. I just can’t help myself sometimes I am a total food lover nerd.
