Winter Warm Foods

2 Jan

Ahh, my last week off before I go back for my second semester of my freshman year of college! This weather has been so crazy lately! First it was a snow storm, then it was 40 degrees and rain, then the sun was shinning,

and now, its freezing! 😦

Ahh Michigan, you always keep me on my toes!

That’s ok though, I’ve been keeping warm with my lentil soup 🙂

Not to mention a  H U G E  batch of veggie chili that will probably last me all winter long:

Score! This is a huge time saver! Always make big batches of soup and freeze it for later. This will come in handy on the one night you don’t want to make dinner!

And perhaps I’ve been eating some squirrel-style potatoes! Yumm.

Sweet potatoes, purple potatoes, and long white potatoes all roasted up and seasoned with thyme, basil, and oregano.

A   p e r f e c  t   snack.

What foods have you been eating to keep warm?

In other news, I’m totally loving my new book:

Crazy Sexy Diet

By: Kris Carr

This girl is amazing! She’s like a combo of Rory Freedman and Alicia Sliverstone yet, totally different in her own way. I don’t want to give too much away but you should really go out and get this book. She has a lot of great health and wellness tips and some great recipes at the back of the book.

Does anybody else own this book yet?

I’m so ready to get back into a regular routine. I haven’t went to the gym in over a week! My head is killing me from all of the junk I’ve ate over the holidays like cookies, chip, and SUGAR. I am in need of a green smoothie and some hard-core pilates, that’s for sure! Plus, I still haven’t tried out my new gear! Geez I’m behind! 🙂

    How are Kelseys potatos? I just am scared all the seasonings will ruin the sweetnes of the potatos! lol
    That looks like an awesome book! Where did you buy it at?
    I love pretty much all healthy living and eating magazines and books! 🙂

    I’ve never tried purple potatoes — do they have a similar flavor to russet potatoes?

      They are similar to red potatoes, actually. Very tasty 🙂

    I had Kelsey-inspired sweet potatoes yesterday! Mmm, they were delicious! I see why she eats 6-7 at at time!! 🙂

    I made some badass soup the other day to combat the cold! And tonight some yummy brussels sprouts and tempeh 🙂

    Aw, I know how you feel. I am not looking forward to starting school again. :/ those potatoes look excellent! I need to try them someday. I only have orange sweet potatoes here, though.
