Healthy Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Do you love chips?

Have you tried sweet potato chips?

Have to say its amazing!!!!

I can't believe how great they turned out and everyone loved it. I should have made more it was gone before the my guests even arrived...


Baked Sweet Potato Chips

Ingredients:

  • 2 organic sweet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (you are able to add any seasoning you like)

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Wash and dry your sweet potatoes and slice them as uniformly thin as possible.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the sweet potatoes. Then sprinkle with salt (seasoning of your choice)
  4. Lay the sweet potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 2 hours. Flipping chips once at halfway point to ensure even cooking.
  5. Remove once crisp and golden brown. Some may feel a little tender in the middle but take them out and let them rest for 10 minutes or so to crisp up before sampling.
**Cooking time might be different for all depending on how thin your slices are and on your oven. Keep an eye on the potatoes so you don't burn them.
**You are able to wash the potatoes very well and not peel them or you can go ahead and peel them then cut into thin slices. I choice to peel my potatoes before I slice them.
**Reason why I choice to bake at 250 degrees is because the low temperature helps to bake the chips more evenly.

Blog Slacker

So as you can tell I had promised to blog more but haven’t.... also I was going to start the 21 day challenge and that didn’t work so well either...... yea this doesn’t look like it’s going so well....

Mmmmmmmm

No bueno.....

Well on a positive note..... I have transferred to a new department at work, which I am enjoying a lot more.....

J
Let’s see what else is new.... so the thing is that I keep hearing is that it’s bad to wash your hair everyday and guess what I wash my hair everyday... if I don’t it just feels disgusting and itchy... also it looks so oiling like i have not showed for weeks....
So, what to do? What do you guys do? Do you shower everyday or what?
Any advice?

21 Day Fix


To get back on track I decided to go ahead and get the new 21 Day Fix from Beach Bodies..... the reason why I choice this plan because I loved the idea of having the Tupperware to measure my food intake. I have always found it hard to measure how much is the correct portion size. With the size of dinner plates we have now a days they should be the size that serves an entire family not an individual.

Have you tried the 21 Day Fix? What did you think of it?

I am going to start mine on June 9th. I recently was in a car accident which now I need a little time off to rest and get better before I can start my journey. If there is anyone interested in joining me please lets start together....... I think having a support group and others that have the same goals as you is very helpful. I know trying to make a life change and improve yourselves can be a very hard thing in the society that we live in which everything either comes in Large or Extra Large.

Back to What Makes Me Happy

HELLO EVERYONE!!!!!


I am so glad that I am finally back. This last year things have gotten out of control, which has made me lose myself but now I am back and going to go back on working on myself improving my eating habits and getting back on track to the best shape I can be.


I know that we can all lose ourselves at time but we need to figure out a way to stay on track and keep doing what we do to keep us happy. I had always enjoyed expressing and sharing any new health related topics I come across with you and I am going to start back to improve the health of us all. I keep looking around and there are so many diets out there that we all keep doing the Jo-Jo dieting. We need to snap out of it and just be us and eat what we want with correct portions and move. Key thing is to move. I have realized that I spend 12 hours of my life everyday sitting down either driving to work or working at my desk which trust has not make things pretty and has made my life miscible. I didn’t realize what it was that kept making me so unhappy but I finally did. It’s the fact that I am not doing anything for myself. I am not doing what I like which is to be active and get out explore this amazing world that we have.

Natural Way to Cure Breakouts




1 & 2: Digestive System
            Eat less processed or junk food, reduce the amount of fat in your diet, step up water intake and opt for cooling things like cucumbers.

3: Liver
            Cut out the alcohol, grease food and dairy. This is the zone where food allergies also show up first, so take a look at your ingredients.

4 & 5: Kidneys
            Anything around the eyes (including dark circles) point to dehydration. Drink up!

6: Heart
            Check your blood pressure and Vitamin B levels, Decrease the intake of spicy or pungent food, cut down on meat and get more fresh air.

7 & 8: Kidneys
            Again, drink up! And cut down on aerated drinks, coffee and alcohol as these will cause further dehydration.

9 & 10: Respiratory system
            Do you smoke? Have allergies? This is your problem area for both. If neither of these is the issue, don’t let your body overheat, eat more cooling foods, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air.

11 & 12: Hormones
            This is the signature zone for stress and hormonal changes. And while both are something unavoidable, you can decrease their effect by getting adequate sleep, drink enough water, eating leafy veggies and keeping skin clean.

13: Stomach
            Step up the fiber intake, reduce the toxic overload and drink herbal teas to help with digestion.

14: Illness
            Zits here can be sign that your body is fighting bacteria to avoid illness.
