Sweet Potato Pecan Tacos

RECIPE

Sweet Potato Pecan Tacos | Nutrition Stripped

Last year I shared with you all those delicious Spring Veggie Tacos and Avocado Cream and I’m glad you enjoyed them as much as I do, but this year I wanted to step it up a bit and bring you my new favorite way to enjoy tacos! They’re filled with roasted sweet potato, lightly dusted with cumin and blood sugar balancing cinnamon, a Black Bean Pecan Cream that’s out of this world, chopped tomatoes, red onion, and fresh cilantro, then topped with the simplest Lime Cream topping to bring the entire dish together, all encased in an organic corn tortilla. Cheers to taco season everyone!

Green Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Green Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream | Nutrition Stripped

Ice cream! I get really excited about ice cream recipes and this is probably going down as the best I’ve ever made…thus far. It’s that good. It’s not only a beautiful sage green color, but it has several things that I adore: coconut milk, rich in medium chain triglycerides (i.e. healthy saturated fats), fresh mint that soothes digestion, dark chocolate which is high in antioxidants, and greens from matcha and ALOHA Daily Greens. It’s the epitome of ice cream, thick, creamy, cold, and smooth; perfect for warmer days.

Lemony Sunchoke Soup

RECIPE

Lemony Sunchoke Soup | Nutrition Stripped

With the sun waking up and shaking off winter, spring and summer bring about times where soup is often left behind unless we’re talking about gazpacho. To soups credit, it’s a dish that should still be incorporated into our spring and summer menus since it’s easy to make, stores well as a leftover, and most importantly the fiber can help us improve our digestion (but take it easy and read my notes on these sunchokes), making us feel great from the inside out when we might be showing a little more midriff and skin, right? The combination of zesty fresh lemon made in a delicate broth surrounding chunks of fiber rich sunchokes, make it the perfect spring soup to welcome into your repertoire!

Shaved Asparagus Salad

Shaved Asparagus Salad | Nutrition Stripped

Spring has completely sprung here in Nashville, I just noticed the first tulips of the season bloom over Easter weekend and it was such a lovely little surprise. Not only are flowers blooming, but this also means all the local farmers are started to gather up their crops and farmers markets will be in full swing before we know it. One of my favorite spring veggies to cook with is asparagus! Asparagus is one of those vegetables that you either LOVE or you’re not too keen on it (to put in a nice way). This Shaved Asparagus Salad contains some of my favorite spring and late winter produce, including blood oranges, raw shaved asaparagus spears, lemons, toasted pine nuts, high quality olive oil, and simple seasonings that take this salad to the next level and is another way to celebreate spring!
