About Me

I started this blog to keep track of my kitchen creations. I love cooking and eating. In 2008 I was diagnosed with RA. Food started becoming a huge problem. I needed to find a better way to eat the flavors I love. All the recipes I create are driven by my desire to eat good food that won't create extra pain and inflammation in my internal ecosystem. While the recipes are wholesome, the language is not. I swear. I use the word 'fuck'. A lot! I make no apologies for that. It's just a fair warning. I'm raw and real. Happy cooking! Even happier eating! Cheers! Angie

Sweet Potato Protein

Again, here's me trying to choke down sweet potatoes.  It's amazing what peanut butter does for things!  Throw in some PB and all is right with the world! 
I have to thank my coach for being my guinea pig. Good thing he doesn't mind trying new things, especially knowing he may be getting something that doesn't taste so great. Thanks Robbie!  I would have never posted yesterday's or today's recipes. I also have to thank Matt L & John H for sharing the idea to put sweet potatoes in smoothies. Not something I would have ever tried. 

Make sure when you're choosing sweet potatoes, make sure to choose the ones with reddish skin and orange flesh (labeled as yams) over the white ones. 

Sadly there is no picture today. We drank it all before I remembered to take one.  Hopefully I'll remember tomorrow!  


2 cups of almond milk
1 scoop of protein powder
3 tablespoons of hemp powder
3 tablespoons of whole oats 
1/4 c organic peanut butter
1/4 c raw cashews
4 medjool dates
1 banana
1 sweet potato
12 ice cubes

Cube and cook the sweet potato in the microwave or oven until it's soft then let it cool completely. 

Throw everything but the ice cubes in a high powered blender.  As its mixing, add the ice one cube at a time. 

This makes enough to share or save!
