If you’ve never had a dessert made with avocado, you’re seriously missing out. If you’re not sure whether this works, trust me, it does!

I think one of the keys to successfully staying on a weight-loss program is having a variety of high-quality recipes, this dish will be right at the top of your list.

Crispy Sweet Potato and Spinach Gnocchi with Fresh Garlic Tomato Sauce
My childhood was all Italian. In my house it was Italy every day and gnocchi was never far from the table.
The problem some people have with gnocchi is they can be a little heavy and make you feel lethargic after eating. Sweet potato is so much lighter than its regular cousin.
It changes everything about this dish yet somehow it feels very familiar. I love it!

The great thing about Buddha Bowls is they are super versatile, that is their very nature.
Whether you follow this recipe or use it as a base to use up leftovers, you’re going to win either way.
I love the salad part as it uses balsamic vinegar, one of my favorites!

The end result is this amazing snack which you can use to make any dish even better.
Make-Ahead Kale and Sweet Potato Burritos
Burritos! Probably the ultimate food, right? Even better than a sandwich as nothing can ooze out of the sides.
Pack everything you can into these bad boys!
The Kale is prepared to perfection and the sweet potato along with all the other ingredients guarantee flavor and satisfaction.
Take them to work, on a day out or just when you’re at home and want to treat yourself.
