Homemade sweet potato tortilla chips made with sweet potato, onion and flax seed. No corn! No dehydrator needed.
When I’ve made a lovingly healthy choice for myself I am encouraged to make more of them… because, it feels good.
Like, stepping away from my plate when full, saying “no” to food when I’m legitimately not hungry, or understanding what food my body needs to stay nourished.
The strongest, most effective practice I use to stay in the flow of making love-based choices for myself is smoothies, juices and cleansing. When I notice that I’m having a difficult time making healthy choices, cravings are at an all-time high, or I just can’t seem to understand what my body wants, I jump on a cleanse or prepare a bunch of green juice, and recalibrate.
Within days, I slide back into those love-based choices, and away I go.
This practice, of taking a step back to reconnect to my body, has changed the way I approach my life.
But more than that? It’s the solution that I wish I’d had all those years ago when cravings ruled my life, my body acted out on me and food made me miserable.
A major aspect of my new book is on cleansing safely. I show you how to prepare for; and come down from, a cleanse in a way that allows you to keep the momentum going far after you’re done the program. Because we all want to be the healthiest versions of ourselves. We all want to be encouraged to make loving choices, feel radiant, vibrate with energy and glow, from the inside out.
And so, in celebration of the launch, over the next couple of weeks I’ll be sharing a bunch of new recipes that support a safe transition into and out of my new cleanse programs.
What better way to kick if off than with a spin on (almost) everyone’s favorite snack food:: the sweet potato tortilla chip!
Cleanse away, my friends, cleanse away.
You can score the chips any way that you like. I liked them in this diamond shape because it was easy to do and fun to eat!
You can choose to make the salsa, or not. Totally up to you.
I shared a second cleanse-supporting recipe on Ricki Heller this week. My Toasted Fennel & Carrot Slaw – made with raw fennel, carrots, fresh herbs and a light vinaigrette dressing. It goes really well with these chips, too ;)
Now, I’d love to hear from you —
How do you manage cravings?
