Addiction Swapping: Sweet Potatoes to Squash

Francine's Finest Chocolate & Pumpkin Seed Butter Bars. These Gluten Free Raw 
Protein Bars got a facelift! The new packaging is much trendier than the old packaging

You can credit most of the 15g of protein to Raw Quinoa Powder!

I still argue that they are the best bars I have ever eaten

They are also the prettiest too... check out the 
family of pumpkin seeds nesting together on top :)

Next up, more Kabocha Squash and Stir-Fries!

I love how i've traded my sweet potato addiction with a kabocha squash addiction

I cubed and boiled 1 medium Kabocha Squash with Frozen Edamame Beans in 
pot, while stir-frying Green Beans, Beet Greens, Spinach, and Onions in another

Seasoned with Yellow and Brown MustardBasil,
 Garlic Powder, Thai Seasoning, and Black Pepper

I got lazy at Dinner, so I used up some of the stir-fry leftovers to make a wrap

Brown Rice Tortilla layered with Emmental Cheese, leftover Kabocha 
Squash and accompanying greens, and Eden Organic Aduki Beans 

Folded and baked in the oven for 5 minutes at 
385 Fahrenheit, until lightly brown and crispy

Just the way I like my burrito wraps

This way the tortilla becomes crunchy and flaky, 
yet the inside remains soft and the cheese, melty!


Question: Are there any foods you felt you were 
"addicted" to that you have tried to overcome, only to find 
you've swapped your addiction for another/different food?

I felt like I was "addicted" to peanut butter for a while-I was eating waaay too much of it. I gave it up for lent, so it was better when I started eating it again. Moderation is key. However, I did use coconut butter and unsweetened chocolate as a substitute....just not the same, though.

I think I'm addicted to bananas-I have at least one a day in one form or another. I also feel I have an addiction to nut-butters.

I love how appetizing your burrito wraps always look. The crispy exterior, and ooey gooey interior - delicious!

I'll admit, I'm a full on cheese addict and peanut butter addict. The day is not complete without a little bit of each. I crave them if I don't have them.

I used to be addicted to yogurt + granola for breakfast. Then once I started blogging I tried oatmeal and I became addicted to it too!

This post is making me want kabocha! But the only place I can find it is an hour away... oh well, it's worth the trip!

I used to be addicted to Dr. Pepper slurpees and Whopper Juniors when I was in high school!!! Yikes!! I gave them both up, and now think that they are pretty disgusting.

Like you...I use to eat at least one sweet potato every day. I have recently been obsessed with corn. So good right now! After a long day at work, it was refreshing to come and visit your blog. I hope you are having a good start to your week. Much love and many hugs from Austin! Thank you for sharing your creative concoctions with me.
