After watching the movie last night, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, we pulled out the juicer and juiced three times today. All were phenomenal, colorful, and tasted wonderful. Not sure why I have not found my abs yet, but I figure that will come soon, tomorrow. We are watching Fed Up tonight; another health food, nutrition, food movement, etc. movie. Yes I know they all have an agenda, but I find something interesting in each one.
Today is going to be a short blog. I got a movie to watch. BTW I found out last week if you pop popcorn in the microwave, in a bag or plastic popper, and then spray it with Braggs Amino Acids it is awesome. I have never liked butter on my popcorn. Why anyone wants to make fresh popped popcorn mushy is a mystery to me. I sprayed just a bit on the popcorn as I tossed it, and was amazed.
I will not be weighing tomorrow because I want to use my scales whenever I get home, no rush.

Taj Mahal Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
This was part of our dinner tonight; however we didn’t bother to put it back into the sweet potato shells, nothing fancy here. This recipe is from Grassy Roots Nutrition. Serves 2
2 baked sweet potatoes
1 carrot, diced
1 small onion, diced
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 tablespoon butter or oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons milk or half and half, or your preferred milk
- Cook sweet potatoes. This can be accomplished in the microwave in about ten minutes, in a 350 oven for about an hour or in your slow cooker, on low, while you’re at work. Your call.
- Warm a skillet over medium heat and melt butter. Add onions, carrots, spices and cook 5-10 minutes or until soft. Add peas and cook until they’re heated through.
- While veggies are cooking, slice potatoes in half and scoop out most of the middle, leaving enough that the potato can still hold its own shape. Put the scooped out part in a bowl, add milk, and mash with a spoon.
- When the veggies are ready, add them to the bowl of mashed potato and stir until evenly distributed. Divide the mixture between the sweet potato halves and serve.
