Sweet potato pudding 👩🏾🍳🇯🇲
⚜️Sweet potato pudding with soak mixed fruits
4 pounds sweet potatoes
2 cans coconut milk ( and little water to rinse the cans)
2 1/2 cups blended mixed fruits
3/4 cup brown sugar (use 1 cup if you like yours sweet)
2 cups flour
1 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon almond essence
2 teaspoons ginger powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
one whole nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon Coconut milk
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
2 tablespoon liquid for the soaking fruits
Blend potatoes and coconut milk
Add almond essence
Add mixed spice
Add flour mixture to potato mixture and fold
Add blended fruits
Add to a greased baking pan
Bake at 350 deg F for 1 hour and 370 deg F for 20 mins
Add pudding top mixture in the last 10 mins .
*You will need a good blender, one that will blend with a small amount of liquid. If you use 4 pounds of potatoes, you will be blending in four batches using half can of coconut milk each time. Also add a small amount of water to rinse out the cans, so none of the coconut milk get wasted.

Don’t feel guilty for eating Sweet Potatoes. They have more nutritional benefits than you think.
Repost • @medicalmedium Sweet Potatoes are an incredibly nutritious food that are packed with antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamins C, E & D, and minerals such as manganese and iron. They are also high in potassium which helps to lower blood pressure by removing excess sodium and regulating fluid balance in the body. Sweet potatoes are an excellent anti-stress food and are known to help relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function.
They are also one of the best anti-cancer foods and can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers. Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. Sweet potatoes contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body.
Mothers have even given children who have accidentally swallowed a metallic object such as a coin, plenty of sweet potato so that it will stick to the object and allow it to pass through easier. The health benefits of sweet potatoes are the most bioavailable when eaten raw, steamed, or baked.
Try making a simple fat-free sweet potato soup by steaming sweet potatoes until soft and then placing in a blender or food processor and blend until creamy smooth. Spices such as cloves, cinnamon, ginger, chili pepper, or curry can be added for a flavor and nutritional boost.
Baked sweet potatoes can be stored in the refrigerator and later sliced over a fresh green salad for a hearty lunch or dinner. Sweet potatoes are also delicious mashed with a drizzle of olive oil, coconut butter, or avocado. Sweet potatoes are a comforting, satisfying, and very healing food, consider finding more ways to include them into your diet.

Vegan sausages, sweet potato with carrots, broccoli and leeks 🥦. I've never been a huge meat eater but on this journey I've been making attempts to eat veggie where and when I can - and I absolutely love it 🥕! There are some amazing vegetarian options out there, like these Shroomdogs by @sainsburys ! This dinner is tasty, filling and low calorie as well - 550 🤩. Smashed a gym session earlier as well so feeling good for a Monday!! ________________________________________________
Food prep as an act of rebellion | Inspired by today’s conversation on Slowing Down by @annaviolalovind👩🏻🍳💥 When I was growing up, an either/or attitude hung in our household air to the effect of: “cooking takes hours a day, Mom does that; holding a job takes 9 to 5 plus overtime, Dad does that. And you, you have to choose one path... & because of all of your privileges, you should choose career.”
In our kitchen, I was invited to “assist.” I trimmed the ends off string beans, buttered rolls & mixed cookie dough, but I was never taught the art of the main course. It was Mom’s role. I respected that & believed I could never do it like her anyway. And in a world where girls could now become doctors & lawyers, “you won’t have to cook,” they said.
Besides rare times we ate out, my mother never missed a meal. The first time she was too sick in bed to cook, I was in high school.
So I tried to cook... rice. My master plan was to add it to a can of Campbell’s chicken soup for our family of 4. How hard could it be? The directions on the box were black & white, but I overrode them with logic: “There is NO WAY that little amount of rice is enough for us, I should use 4x the amount!” And I proceeded to, using a small pot, & within 20 minutes, you can imagine: bubbles & wet, undone rice on the stovetop, in all 4 burners, every-freaking-where. The burning smell drew my mother out of the sickbed to the kitchen where she cleaned up the mess. I sat on the tile floor in shambles, watching her through my tears, feeling so incapable & awful that she never did get a full day off from cooking.
Today life is different. In my adult years, by challenging that early conditioning, slowing down & taking time (& trusting quantities in recipes 😂) I have learned to prepare beautiful, nourishing meals for my family & even for large groups of people in meditation programs. Now my husband & I make it a daily practice to grow some of our own food &... [continued in comments]
Do you love the #sweetpotato ? So, you should try this Mexican Quinoa Stuffed!
Ingredients 2 large sweet potatoes 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/4 cup chopped red onion 1/4 cup chopped bell pepper 1/2 cup frozen corn 1/2 cup cooked quinoa 1 cup canned black beans drained & rinsed 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika Sea salt to taste
Ever have one of those days/weeks were you feel like you’re not doing enough or feel like locking yourself in a sound proof room and screaming as loud as you can because your child has pressed your last button 🙃😬😭 🙋🏻♀️ Jesse is amazing and I love being around him but I also love being by myself sometimes and Daddy being away a bit recently has meant very little of that 😴
When I’m tired, self doubt starts to creep in & I start to doubt everything I’m doing for him even though I know I’m being ridiculous as I couldn’t do any more for him.
Today I felt bad that I hadn’t made him any meat in time so just gave him an omelette for tea with sweet potato, yoghurt and strawberries (a completely adequate tea 😂) However the most amazing thing (to me) happened and he picked the spoon up to feed himself 😭( so proud) he’s been so fussy recently not wanting me to pass him the spoon, he’s Mr independent so gets annoyed with me 😭🙃! I’ve been sending myself crazy thinking of ways I can encourage him to use it again but he just needed time to figure it out and I finally realised he’ll get there in his own time & maybe I should take a chill pill 🙊!! I’m sure most parents feel this way but having a prem baby adds extra stress 😰 the worry that they’re behind babies their age 😭! Anyway just thought I’d share Incase anyone else ever feels this way🥰

Packing Lunch - Fish paste stuffed tofu skin braised with thick caps of Japanese shitake mushrooms and oyster sauce, and sweet potato vine stir-fried with garlic and coarse sea salt.
The last time I had sweet potato vines (literally, the greens of sweet potatoes) was 4 years ago, while on a vacation in Taipei. Surprisingly, they are not common in the Bay Area. I was tickled to find them at my local Ranch 99. It has the texture of ong-choy and spinach.
Oh... and yes, that is a ton of cilantro. I was using up leftovers in the fridge (although I keep them in a vase of water, they won't survive another week while I am out of town). Besides, they pair beautifully with seafood.
