My goal in reintroducing food groups is to know how my body will react if I give myself a break. Like I said above, I feel so great physically and mentally that I want to continue with Whole 30/clean eating. So, my goal is to follow 80/20. During the week when I'm cooking for myself, no issue. But what's life without a little fun, especially on the weekends, right?!
I combined a few recipes to whip up a delicious meal!
· 4 medium (about 7 oz each) sweet potatoes, skin on, wedged
· 1 tbsp olive oil
· 1 1/2 tsp paprika
· pinch cayenne pepper
· 1 tsp garlic powder
· Coarse salt and fresh-cracked pepper
Cook at 425 for 8-9 minutes on each side
1 can tomato paste (6oz)
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup unsweetened 100% apple sauce
1 tbsp coconut aminos
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp chipotle powder (see note below)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp all spice
1/4 tsp cayenne powder (optional)
Mix together, simmer over low heat and add water to get to a consistency you like.
I mixed the potatoes and bbq with chicken, cilantro, jalapeno and red onion and viola!
