    Sweet potatoes were awesome! Perfect flavor, so good!

  • These sound incredible! Def going to try them out.

  • I would add essential oils when potatoes cool off, and a very small amount.

    Appreciate the recipes! I enjoy a Fall pumpkin drink: In blender, puree 3 c. cooked pumpkin (or canned pumpkin), almond milk–add to desired consistency, agave (to taste), 1 dr ea. nutmeg oil, cinnamon oil, and a toothpick dip of clove oil. If desired, reduce nutmeg by using a toothpick dip of it. Can add a scoop of your favorite YL protein blend. Blend and enjoy hot or cold! Serve with organic whipped cream.

    • This sounds great, Jeanette! Thanks for posting it for us all to enjoy!

    Those look incredible! We’re going to do this – especially the mashed cauliflower recipe. Great idea with the Power Meal addition too!
