Whenever my daughter tries a new diet, not that she needs it, I get dragged into trying it too. I do need it though. However, there are times I just want to be plump. But, no. Whatever diet she’s currently on is the best and so good for you and by golly, I better jump on that bandwagon or I’m missing out.

 

And so for a while, we were: gluten-free, dairy-free, then Paleo (you’re telling me cavemen didn’t eat corn but they cooked with coconut oil and used almond flour…please), we tortured ourselves for the whole 30 days (on numerous occasions), we gave up meat, we only ate meat, whatnot, and so on.

 

Who comes up with all these diets and why do they keep changing on us what is healthy? Make up your minds, already! The only diet that ever worked for me was the UN diet.

 

On a positive note, we discovered some pretty yummy recipes. Easy ones without coconut aminos and some other, hard-to-pronounce, ingredients.  We liked the Filipino breakfast torta, Greek quinoa salad, and Spanish garlic shrimp.

 

Another yummy one was this Thai stuffed sweet potatoes recipe. I modified and simplified the original recipe from PaleOMG. I replaced coconut oil with the regular (I swear, I don’t hate coconuts), for those days when I just want to be plump.

      Gracias, Albert! Much appreciated. Even though I’m not a huge fan of sweet potatoes, I can eat this dish often. Soo good.
      Btw, your paella recipe looks delicious! I know my husband would inhale it in one sitting and I wouldn’t mind giving it a try although I don’t like shrimp. But you sold it to me, ha! Couldn’t find a way to leave a comment on your blog, though.

      Sweet potato fries are as far as I go with sweet potatoes, but this dish is truly delicious. 🙂

    “Those days when I just want to be plump.” LOL, that’s SO me today!!! I’ve had the flu, and after a few days of eating very little I’m ready to dive face-first into something delicious like these stuffed sweet potatoes!!! What a great idea for using up rotisserie chicken—I always seem to have some in the fridge!

    OMG, I laughed so hard at your comment on cavemen diets! That’s pretty much the way I feel about most diets these days. If I go on one, I know it’s just for the aesthetics. Healthy is all about balance. (That, and I just can’t give up my sweets!) This recipe, however, does look like exactly the kind of meal I would LOVE to have on any diet. Thanks so much for sharing at the #happynowlinkup!

      Diets are ridiculous sometimes, aren’t they? And we believe everything we read. I totally agree with you. Everything in moderation.

      Lisa, it took me a long time to acquire the taste for sweet potatoes but I still don’t like the sweet version of it. Isn’t it strange? Especially that I have the sweetest tooth ever. LOL
