2 medium organic sweet potatoes
2 Tbsp. Earth Balance butter + 2 Tsp. Earth Balance butter
1 large sweet onion
1 large Hass avocado
Handful of organic cherry tomatoes
1 rotisserie chicken
1 clove fresh garlic
Handful of fresh organic spinach
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Poke holes in potato to allow steam out. Place sweet potato on cookie sheet and bake for 75-85 minutes or until soft.
When the potatoes have about 20 minutes remaining, shred chicken and saute in large frying pan with 1 Tbsp. EB butter and clove of chopped garlic over medium heat.
Chop onion and in a separate small frying pan, cook onion, covered, over low-medium heat with 1 Tsbp of EB butter until brown and caramelized.
Once potato is cooked, cut open and insert 1 tsp EB butter into each potato and allow to melt. Top with carmalized onions, spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes and avocado. Serve with shredded chicken and organic unsweetened applesauce.
*for vegan, omit the chicken.
Use a slicing mechanism, or mandolin, that will magically make fettuccine just by pushing the zucchini through.
Boil a pot of water and add salt – add your “noodles” and cook for a minute – be sure not to overcook. Remove and set into a pot of cold to stop the cooking process.
Then, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large saute pan – throw in about 3 cloves of minced garlic, add in your freshly made "pasta", saute around until evenly coated – sprinkle with red pepper flakes (omit for AIP), and fresh basil leaves to taste. Plate. Light healthy and delicious!
1 small spaghetti squash
15 large basil leaves
1 small clove garlic
1/4 cup olive oil

Combine pesto with two cups spaghetti squash (save any remaining squash for another recipe). Add tomatoes and season with additional salt and pepper.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
