Happy Fry-day y’all! A little something you may not know about me is that I’m a super picky eater. I have a few things that I really like and a lot of those happen to be not so great for me. I LOVE potatoes and all forms of them, especially fries. But, being on this fitness journey and wanting to be the healthiest version of myself, I have been on the hunt to find healthier ways to create my fav foods.
Tonight I made one of my main staples: baked sweet potato fries! They are ridiculously delicious and I can’t help but eat them all as soon as they come out of the oven. They don’t last long in my house because I’ve converted Chris Gordon from a McDonalds French fry addict to a baked sweet potato freak! Have you ever made homemade fries?
#veganrecipes#eatinghealthy#sweetpotato#spanishtomatorice Had a green bell pepper that was calling me. What do I make with that? Either spaghetti sauce or this rice dish. I was able to clear out my freezer w homegrown tomatoes. Yippee! So happy to make more room and eat from my garden. Nothing makes me happier. Thank you to my neighbors Cindy and Brett for their rice grown in Winters Calif. #farming#thankfulliving

Very helpful post from @meowmix. I was just having a conversation with one of my online clients earlier today who was still of the belief that eating after a certain time at night would mean she would store it all as fat. So she was very relieved to hear it doesn't work that way. Your body doesn't know time, just total calories at the end of the day. .

Let’s break the myth that you can’t have carbs after 6pm 😜
💫 First off here’s a reminder of what you need to hit your goal:
Calorie deficit - to lose weight
Calorie surplus - to gain weight.
Calorie maintenance - to maintain weight. .
So at the end of the day if you’re hitting your calorie goals, primarily from quality nitritious food (some fun too) that’s what matters most!
🥔 Second off there are some benefits to having some carbs at night:
1 - Increase serotonin levels: Carbs trigger insulin which reduces amino acid levels so that tryptophan can cross the blood brain barrier & get converted to serotonin. When serotonin is elevated at night, it enables a restful sleep.
2 - Lowers stress levels: Carbs reduce cortisol levels aka the stress hormone so having them at night can help put you in more a relaxed state
3 - A 2011 study showed that over a 6 month period the group that ate carbs at dinner/night had greater weight loss, abdominal circumference, and body fat mass reductions
Now I’m not saying you should definitely eat your carbs at night! You should experiment, find what time feels right for you & as long as you’re hitting your calorie goals, you’re on the right path ❤️ Source:

Easy peasy late dinner tonight. Baked cod seasoned with a thyme, lemongrass, garlic and fennel seed blend with steamed spinach and Brussels with sea salt and lemon zest and half a baked sweet potato. Now I’m about to drink some hot tea, take a bubble bath and relax a little. Hope you have a great night.
Ta-da! Before you clicked on this photo, you didn't know what you were gonna make for lunch (or dinner) today. But now that you're looking at @plantifulblonde's tasty looking photo here, the chickpeas, sweet potato, kale, tomatoes, and onions in your kitchen are looking mighty fine to grace your plate shortly.
