It’s not the first time I’ve incorporated vegetables into dessert, especially sweet potatoes, and and sure won’t be the last. Today’s recipe may have you giving yourself a face palm to the forehead, thinking “that’s so easy why didn’t I think of that!”… or thinking “McKel, this is just weird”. These stuffed sweet potatoes are filled with delicious whole food toppings and ingredients to take an already delicious sweet potato to the next level, dessert! Who else can say that along with dessert, they also had fiber, vitamin A, potassium, and a bit of protein and healthy fats from the toppings?

Hey everyone! I wanted to pop in real quick and let you all know that I have a new cooking video on the Nutrition Stripped YouTube channel, showing you how to make my favorite dessert from the blog, Dark Chocolate Avocado Mousse!
Be sure to subscribe, give me a thumbs up, and leave a comment to show your support (hey, it’s totally not easy getting in front of the camera, but it’s been a lot of fun!). I hope you all love it!
You’re all going to think I’ve officially gone mental with this recipe, I can already hear my mom telling me “McKel, no one is going to eat that blue stuff!”- all in good fun. This Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl came to me, well on a beautiful blue summer morning a couple weeks ago, hence the name. It’s been really hot here in Nashville so my smoothie bowls are calling MAH name in the mornings for something simple, delicious, nourishing, and cold. This one hits all of those + it incorporates my beloved protein packed spirulina, omega-3 rich chia seeds, and a fiber rich veggie, which you’ll never guess!

We’ve all experienced it at one point in time, we’ve just brought home a haul of fresh fruits and vegetables only to notice several days later some of them are going bad, getting mushy, and headed straight for the trash can (or compost). This is something I used to experience all the time especially when I first started grocery shopping and cooking for myself in college. I never knew how to properly store fresh fruits and vegetables to maximize their life, nutrition, texture, and taste. Today I’m going to share with you all my top tips learned over the years that I use weekly after my grocery shopping/market trips to keep my veggies and fruits fresh!
When I was younger, like most children in America, there was some type of dish our parents would cook using carbohydrates loaded with cheese as a way to hide green vegetables… am I right? Fortunately, my family embraced healthy foods and were on the health conscious side, but that didn’t mean I wouldn’t eat “junk”. When I was a teenager learning to cook for myself, mac & cheese with broccoli was my go-to, it was easy, moderately healthy (or so I thought) and kept me feeling good enough to do activities I wanted to all day/night long.
