Sammy D TV // Episode 15 // 5 Things That Have Made Me Happier & Healthier

I decided to change things up for this week’s episode.

I’ve had a lot of outreach via social media regarding my diet, my drive, my determination … and in a sense, my direction.

Like most of you, I’m a 20-something female with ambition and passion. But I’m also a 20-something female with ambition and passion who wants to live a balanced, happy, healthy life.

I’m always learning how to achieve all of the above and feel a constant sense of fulfillment. Here are 5 new things I’ve learned & embraced since the New Year that I wanted to share with you. The rundown:

1.) SLEEP!
2.) Yoga! [Try Rodney Yee DVDs & Gaim products] 3.) Fats & Protein! [try fitday.com] 4.) Coconut oil on your face [Whole Foods 356 Organic brand] 5.] Prioritizing your day! [4 Hour Work Week, Timothy Ferris]

This video cut short at the end because I went way too long! Please leave me a comment if you were inspired — or if you have your own quips of 20-something wisdom that you want to share.

RECIPES:

Sweet Potatoes

• 3 medium-large sweet potatoes
• 1 1/2 cups chopped kale
• 1 yellow onion, small dice
• 2 cloves of garlic, minced

• 1/3 cup, raisins
• approximately 1 tbsp coconut oil
• salt, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. On a baking sheet, bake the sweet potatoes, whole, for about 30 minutes, or until soft enough to easily pierce the flesh with a fork. Cut potatoes in half, length-wise, and let cool slightly.
2. Over medium heat, sautee onions in coconut oil with a sprinkle of salt. When they are translucent, add garlic, stirring, then kale. Cook for a minute or two, stirring frequently, until kale is just softened, but not browned. Set aside in bowl.
3. Using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the potatoes, leaving enough for the skin to hold it’s adorable boat-shape (you don’t want limp, floppy, boats). Put the scooped flesh into the bowl with the kale. To that mixture, add sunflower seeds and raisons. Mix thoroughly, and add salt to taste.
4. Refill the sweet potato skins with the kale mixture. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Top with beans, tahini sauce, and pickled cabbage.

Pickled Cabbage

• 2 cups apple cider vinegar
• 1 cup, water
• 1/3 cup salt
• 1 cinnamon stick
• 2 tsp coriander seeds

1. Place thinly sliced cabbage in a heat-safe bowl.
2. In small pot, combine vinegar, water, salt, cinnamon, and coriander, and bring to a boil. Pour over cabbage. Let sit until room temperature, and store in fridge.

Tahini Sauce

• 1/4 cup, tahini
• 2 tsp of tamari or soy sauce
• juice of 1 lime
• 1 pinch, cayenne
• 1-2 tbsp chopped or minced cilantro
• water, to thin sauce to desired consistency (about 2 tablespoons)

1. Combine all ingredients, and whisk together.
2. Drizzle over sweet potatoes (or other things. good on other things, too)
