{Recipe} Southwestern Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls #eatfresh

Hey everyone!

I love to cook and now that the weather is warming up and the winter weather is being knocked out it is time to break out the salads and veggies bowls that I have missed so much. I don't know what it is but in the winter, the last thing I want to eat is a salad. Instead I want warm comfort foods. Well, I am now ready for some of these yum nums and can't wait to start making this. I, of course, will change it up to my tastes, but for the most part, this sounds delish and I will make it soon.

Before then here is something that sounds so yummy and that avocado sauce might become a staple in my salad life.

Recipe



Southwestern Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls

Ingredients

For avocado lime sauce (you will have leftovers):

1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
1 cup cilantro (can substitute with parsley)
1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
2 tablespoons tahini
Juice of 1 lime
About 1/3 cup water, add more to thin if needed
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

For salad:

Handful of mixed baby greens
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
1 teaspoon each minced fresh cilantro and parsley, plus more to garnish
Juice of 1/2 lime, plus more to garnish
1 small sweet potato, peeled and spiralized
2 teaspoons olive oil or avocado oil, divided
1/3 cup cooked black beans
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne
1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
Sliced avocado and green onion, to garnish

Directions

For the sauce: Whirl all ingredients in the food processor until completely smooth. Transfer to a jar. (There will be plenty of the avocado dressing leftover to use as a dip or spread.)

For the salad: In a large bowl, toss the tomatoes, herbs and greens together. Squeeze lime on top and set aside.

Run the sweet potato through the spiralizer to make noodles, or use a vegetable peeler to turn it into ribbons.

Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a frying pan over medium heat, then lightly sauté the noodles for 2–3 minutes or until slightly softened. Transfer the sweet potato noodles to the bowl of greens and tomatoes.

Without cleaning the pan, heat the remaining oil. Toss in the black beans, cayenne and coriander, and stir fry until warm. Add to the sweet potato noodle mixture. Stir everything in the bowl well to combine. Either add the avocado sauce and toss to coat at this point, or plate the salad and drizzle the sauce on top. Serve with sliced avocado, green onion and lime wedges if desired.

{Foodie Product Review} Milford Valley Turkey, Duck & Chicken Nuggets #turduckinnuggets


Hey everyone!

I am so excited to show you all this great product. All information is located below along with links to the product and, of course, my review. So, let's get into it.

Turkey, Duck & Chicken Nuggets


An interesting bite-sized spin on a holiday classic! Tasty nuggets made with a combo of turkey breast, duck bacon and chicken breast. Oven or deep-fry preparation.

My Thoughts

I have to admit that even though I am trying to live a much healthier lifestyle with the food that I eat, I can't say no to a good chicken nugget and boy are these good. I knew when I saw them that I had to give them a shot with them being three different kinda of meat, chicken, turkey, and duck. These have a great flavor and aren't just bland nuggets. While these were frozen you can totally tell that they are made from actual meat that taste fresh. You can taste the awesome chicken and turkey and the succulent duck. I never thought I would have a duck nugget but I have and I like them a lot. I can't find them where I live, maybe one day I will but I will be happy to buy more of them and have them shipped to me because I feel so much better having these than anything else on the market. These are great!

{Beauty Product Review} Whish Renewing Mud Mask #whish

Hey everyone!

I am so excited to show you all this great product. All information is located below along with links to the product and, of course, my review. So, let's get into it.

Renewing Mud Mask


Skincare can't possibly be ho hum when it means playing with some mud. Of course, ours is a really amazing, naturally anti-aging-ingredient-filled Renewing Mud Mask. Just a thin layer and a circular rub provides a gentle resurfacing exfoliation to reveal smoother, softer, more youthful looking skin. Oh hello there gorgeous, we've missed you!

Bakuchiol

Bakuchiol is an antioxidant found in the seeds and leaves of the plant Psoralea.  Clinical studies have shown that Bakuchiol shows retinol like activity on skin without some of the irritating properties and UV sensitivity caused by retinol.

Renews & Exfoliates

Mucor Miehei Extract: Also called Actifoliate, it exfoliates evenly providing an immediate improvement in the appearance of skin smoothness, clarity, brightness, and hydration.  A 20% increase in skin elasticity was shown after 4 weeks of use and 50% reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles after 1 month.

Bionatural Tropical Enzyme: Gently breaks down protein in dead skin to refine and exfoliate the skin surface.

Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Bakuchiol: An all natural retinol replacement.

Organic Rose Hip Oil: Loaded with vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that it is known to soothe the skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles.

Smoothes & Softens

Kaolin Clay: Used to detoxify and purify skin and alleviate minor bumps and imperfections, leaving soft and smooth.

Montmorillonite Clay: Also called bentonite clay it is made from volcano ash. It unplugs and minimizes pores while preventing sebum production which leads to acne.

My Thoughts

Girl let me tell you, this mud mask is freaking amazing. Like seriously! I honestly expected it to be like every other face mask that I have used before, and anyone that knows me knows that this chick loves a good face mask. Well, I used this one and the first thing I noticed when I took it off was the pores on my nose were totally smaller. Yeah! They were totally smaller. Couldn't believe it! Something actually claimed it could make them smaller and totally did, while cleaning out all the gunk that was stuck in there too. Also, I am loving the gentle exfoliation you get with this mask too. It feels great and my skin just glows after using this that I don't even want to wear makeup because it looks so good. Not only that, but a little actually goes a long way with this mask. You don't have to use half the tube on your face to actually get results. Finally, a face mask that is the bomb and I love it. Will be buying this legit when I run out.

{Kitchen Product Review} Green Direct Food Grade Disposable Gloves #greendirect


Hey everyone!

I am so excited to show you all this great product. All information is located below along with links to the product and, of course, my review. So, let's get into it.

Food Grade Disposable Gloves


  • Plastic
  • Imported
  • EXCELLENT EVERY DAY USE! 500 disposable powder free/BPA free gloves.

  • Ambidextrous design allows each glove to be used for either hand.
  • Stock up on these excellent poly gloves for the entire family enjoy it while staying perfectly clear
  • Gloves are conveniently sized: Large to provide you with the most comfortable fit.

My Thoughts

Having gloves around when doing food prep has been the best thing since sliced bread. Especially when it comes to mixing ground meats and such together where you really want to get your hands in the mixture to get everything mixed together. Having gloves to protect your hands make it so much better so if you need to do something else, because something always happens when my hands are dirty like that, you can simply slip these gloves off and do what you need to do and then slip them back on and return to what you were doing before. These are a great size for anyone and even fit my large hands and easily slide off when I want them off. Great gloves and will be getting more because they are also great to have when cleaning also.

{Kitchen Product Review} Multi Functional Microplaner & Grater for Ginger or Garlic #microplaner


Hey everyone!

I am so excited to show you all this great product. All information is located below along with links to the product and, of course, my review. So, let's get into it.

Multi Functional Microplaner


  • Add zest to your cooking with these microplaners for cloves of garlic, ginger, lemon, cheese , chocolate or nutmeg for grating safely. The perfect gift for any food lover. Makes the perfect size grated garlic and ginger.
  • Sharp stainless steel microplane grind board minces garlic and ginger easy and safely
  • Dishwasher safe cleanup in the kitchen is a breeze making it a great kitchen tool accessory

My Thoughts

I use a lot of garlic when I cook but I find that I also waste a lot because I get down to the little nubs and to save my fingers I either just throw it away or do my best to finely chop it and then add it in that way. However, now that I have this small little microplane I don't have any of those problems anymore. This small microplane is perfect for grinding garlic but it is also great for fresh ginger, cheese, nutmeg, or pretty much anything you can fit into the small opening. It keeps my fingers safe and all the flavor in my dishes. I love this little gadget.
