-Rocky Jr Organic whole roast chicken (lemon herb) from Whole Foods. I’ll buy one and eat on it all week. Good over salads, shredded and reheated in corn tortillas with avocado and black beans, or i’ll make a curry chicken salad with it.
-Baked sesame-cumin sweet potato fries (recipe follows)
-Green beans with shallots
mmmmmmmm.
oh – and a few squares of Green & Black organic dark chocolate (70% cocoa content). That’s right, (dark) chocolate is good for you. Haven’t you heard?

Full disclosure: also, 3 bites of boyfriend’s slice of mocha cheesecake.

I look forward to fall when the garnet yams and sweet potatoes come into season. Try this recipe to convert sweet potato skeptics. These fries are healthy – high in vitamins A and C and fiber, and low in calories. I’d guess that kids would love them too.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

2-4 garnet yams or sweet potatoes
2-4 tbsp sesame oil
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375. Oil a cookie sheet. Slice 2-4 yams into chunky (or matchstick) fries. Mix fries with spices and sesame oil in a bowl. Bake 20 minutes; flip and bake 20 more minutes.
