Sweet Potato Flour

Hello Hello!

A little update, shall we?

So 4th of July was fun… well the first half. I ran horsetooth with my best friend and roommate! IT was such a blast. We thought it was going to be harder and that we would only make it 1 or 2 miles. We ran over 5!

Tough stuff, but such a blast.

We played some volleyball in the afternoon but I was beat from the run! We ate delicious pulled pork that we had made in the crockpot along with a ton of watermelon and carrots!

Let’s move on to the good stuff…

Look what I found at Whole Foods this morning!!! I almost peed myself, I was so excited! (Possibly a slight exaggeration… possibly not). Although, I can’t lie, the price almost deterred me from buying it. Key word: almost. I couldn’t resist.

I came running home needing to try it ASAP! Problem? I was starving and didn’t have the patience to look up recipes and experiment. I was hoping to make some crepes, but again, starving. So I resorted to my pancake recipe, but subbed out the almond flour for the sweet potato flour. Yummy! It was delicious, I loved the flavor.

Since the Lyme bugs have been angry the past week or so, I’m needing some extra rest. I’m planning on taking it easy this next week- few to no workouts, relaxing between work and school. Just taking it easy. What does this mean? MORE BAKING TIME! HECK YES! I can’t wait to experiment with the sweet potato flour some more. 🙂

Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
