Bread crumbed sweet potatoes

There are things I generally never ate as a child. If you ask me why I never ate them I really wouldn’t have an answer. I just thought that they were gross and generally anything natural or healthy I just did not like. I also had silly things I did not eat like beef!! Now this is a funny story..

When I was a toddler, must have been between 3 and 6, my mum tells me I always made a fuss about beef. I would state with authority that “mimi sikulangi nyama ya ng’ombe nakulanga ya mbuzi pekee” (I do not eat beef I only eat lamb) honestly there was no reason as to why I did not eat nyama ya ng’ombe and I was too young to even know the difference in taste between the two. But I was adamant about it so each time they cooked meat and I was in the kitchen they’d be forced to say “heeee hii nyama ya mbuzi itakuwa tamu” (this goat meat will be very tasty”) and yet they were cooking beef!!!!

My brother Nyaga also went through such a phase when he was around 6 or 7 years old. He was apparently, VERY allergic to the crusts of bread. He would make a big fuss and cry if you did not cut the crust out for him and he was allergic SMH. GOD children are stupid!! So like him and bread crusts I never ate sweet potatoes or enjoyed them till maybe 3 years ago. Now I’m learning new ways of making them like these sweet potato fries and this recipe today.

I do not really have the exact measurements for this as it was such a random make but I bet you will get the drift. I served it with string beans and stir fried chicken breast. Quite healthy I think

HAPPY COOKING!!!

It’s interesting how we judge things just from how the look or sound. we do this with food, with movies, with neighborhoods and even with people. We judge the book by its cover. It’s quite sad actually, but unfortunately this is human nature. I do it too. Like with this recipe for example. I’m kinda trying to eat healthier and when I saw CHEESY i was like “damn another delicious sounding calorie loaded dish” But I made it anyway and as i waited for it to cook I checked online for how many calories it had, less than 400!!! IN TOTAL!! Yes even with the butter, cream and cheese!!! who knew!! Though this depends on the type of cheese you use, if you use sharp cheddar for example the calories go up to 550. But thats still 275 per person!

A part from being calorie friendly this dish is also very very very tasty. The mixture of thyme and dhania was just the perfect choice for this dish. It’s actually felt like I was indulging in some naught dish while I actually wasn’t. This is actually a keeper. HAPPY COOKING!!

healthy 2 ingredients pancakes   Can you imagine making pancakes with just TWO ingredients? YES I said TWO all natural ingredients. Just bananas and eggs. No sugar, no flour, nothing artificial. HOW EXCITING. When I saw this on Pinterest I just had to try it. The original recipe used 1 banana and two eggs and it was just 250 calories for the whole batch. I added 1 banana so guess this should be 350 calories and you can’t finish the whole batch so you will only consume about 175 calories or less. Use cooking spray and you reduce your calories even further. I know I am speaking like a calorie freak but HOW EXCITING. Plus they taste AWESOME and they are super easy to cook. You just have to try them. HAPPY COOKING!!
