Memorial Day Outfit + Diced Sweet Potato Recipe










Memorial Day is right around the corner, eeekk! I always love this holiday. We typically spend tons of time on the water for Memorial Day Weekend, and this year we will be returning to Charleston for another wedding! Being festive is one of the most fun things about the holidays, so I thought this would be the perfect outfit to celebrate the weekends festivities in. Red, white, and denim! From the lake, to a BBQ, or under the fireworks - you can't go wrong with this little ensemble. It's perfect for all occasions and best of all, it's affordable. Both the top and shorts are under $100. Plus, how cute are the ties at the shoulders on the top?! They play off the sweet ruffles on the shorts perfectly. I'm wearing a small in both the top and shorts for reference and I'm linking a few other MDW options in the widget below! 

A few of you had questions on when my work clothes would go up on @shopcheekybeen recently. I'm wrapping up transitioning all of my clients from my corporate job to my replacement this week and hope to start uploading them this weekend! I've supported these people for five years now, so I'm sad to part ways with some of them, but lawdddd I feel so much better in this new phase of life already! Lots of people have commented on how relaxed, and not stressed I look and it's honestly such a breath of fresh air! I can finally breathe again. 

On that note, I've spent a lot more time cooking and eating healthy and you all mentioned you wanted to see some of my recipes! So, below you'll find the recipe for cubed sweet potatoes! They're so easy to make and such a fantastic substitute for your typical non-nutritious starch. I try to only eat carbs once a day, so I eat them with lunch a lot - but they're so delicious you could honestly eat them with every meal.

CUBED SWEET POTATOES

1 package of already cubed sweet potatoes from Whole Foods or Fresh Market
2 tablespoons Avocado Oil (I use Primal Kitchens)
Himalayan Sea Salt 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Pour contents of cubed sweet potatoes in a bowl. Pour 2 tablespoons Avocado Oil (or more if needed) over potatoes and toss until all potatoes are coated in oil. Sprinkle Himalayan Sea Salt over potatoes and toss. Grab a cookie sheet and spray with nonstick spray. Spread potatoes out on cookie sheet evenly and place in oven for 35-45 min depending on oven. I check mine around the 30 minute mark and toss them before putting back in oven so they brown evenly! Voila, all done and ready to eat!

You truly really really know what you're discussing, why spend your brains on just publishing videos to your site when you will be providing us something enlightening to learn?
