today is the beginning of our gluten free experiment. we’re also revisiting veganism. i was raised mostly vegan and have been vegetarian for my entire life. no, i’ve never eaten meat. ever. i know, crazy, right?
we’ll be doing this experiment for a month, or longer, depending how it goes. also, i’m not super strict about things, like, i used some butter in our dinner but i’ll be trying to avoid it. i enjoy moderation.
bake the yams on a cookie sheet at 375′-400′ for 30-45 minutes, until a knife goes easily through them. remove them from the oven and let sit for a few minutes. take the peels off and put them in a bowl. add about four tablespoons of butter and some rainbow pepper to taste.
i cut up a fresh apple to go with everything else.
such a simple meal but so delish!
make sure you get yams, and not sweet potatoes. unless you want sweet potatoes. yams are actually sweeter, ironically. sweet potatoes are more of a yellow color and yams are darker, more orange. just so you know.
this morning we went on a quick little roadtrip and i took this picture out the car window. it’s really peaceful to see places where it’s just open. you can really just breathe. i like it.
