Sweet Potato


Ingredients: *
2 medium sweet potatoes, washed and unpeeled
1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Dash of sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
Cut sweet potato in half then lengthwise, 1/3-inch thick, to make small pieces of “toast.” Can also be cut widthwise into 1/3-inch rounds.
Roast in the oven for 25 to 30 min until they are just tender and starting to brown. 
Allow the sweet potatoes to cool in an airtight container.
Tomorrow’s toast (2-4 small pieces) does not need to be refrigerated, but the extras do.

Serving Suggestion:
In the morning, spread almond or peanut butter, top with blueberries and hemp seeds.

Switch Between High and Low Carb Days

The feature article I created with Women’s World magazine has caused a bit of a buzz! The focus of the piece was carb cycling, and was labeled “the easiest ever weight loss.

I’ve seen the technique work wonders for countless women at midlife and beyond. It’s so simple. You just boost your carb intake for a few days, cut back for a few days, then continue alternating. Results happen quickly. And it feels so great, you won’t even need willpower.

Devotees of the approach say they’ve cycled their way to soaring energy, dramatically better health and a youthful glow—all while dropping 10, 11, even 12 pounds a week!
