Sweet potato fries + raw bowl

Whenever I make sweet potato fries (at least once a week..), I devour them. They’re so addicting, it’s nuts. After waiting 25 minutes for them to bake, I don’t want to wait another second. Therefore, I usually end up eating my fries on a salad. It really seems depressingly boring, but it is my favorite way to accompany them. I don’t choose the salad just because I want food fast, I also can’t fit anything else. Back to the mentioned devouring problem. I devour the whole sweet potato when I get going. There simply isn’t space for more. Salad is the way to go.

I often make more of a traditional salad, but this time I made it raw and colorful with carrot, cauliflower, red cabbage and broccoli sprouts. Keep it creative! Raw salads are genius. Grab some of the veggies you need to get rid of and shred them. Add some clean dressing if you need and voilà – two birds with one stone. You clean out the older veggies, give your body raw (amazing) nutrients to work with, and you use only a couple of minutes to throw it together.

Raw food: amazing for your body. Means less oil to mess with your system, and more nutrients for your body in their natural form.
Sprouts: better for your body to digest. Nutrients will be easier for your body to absorb.
