Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Super simple side and so delicious!  Dice sweet potatoes and drizzle with 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin olive oil, sea salt, and equal parts of cinnamon, turmeric and cumin.  Roast on a baking sheet for 15-20 minutes at 425 degrees.  My new favorite way to make them!

Check out this recipe on Instagram @glutenfreedaily_sara!!  My daily food journal. I started about 3 months ago and I've lost about 8 pounds. I haven't had any sugar and of course, no gluten.  I'm just posting my everyday clean eating routine. It's helped me so much to stay accountable and hopefully it can help others too!! Just did my first grocery store session for a girlfriend of mine. We went through grocery store products, came up with a customized meal plan and gave her a bunch of quick recipes to try. I'll post more about that later : ) If you have any questions for me, I can be reached at

Health food stores are my happy place ❤

$100 later..i cant help myself!! I just love this stuff.  I could seriously spend hours looking at vitamins and supplements. Weird, I know.  I got some new stuff and stocked up on old favorites.  Life's basics protein powder is the best protein powder I've found. It's vegan, gluten free, all natural, mixes well and tastes amazing. When I'm in a hurry, I just shake it with 8oz of coconut water and it's to die for!  Starting to add Maca powder to my shakes as well (good for hormone balancing and energy). Also, grabbed something for my lil Jackson. Somehow, with parents who eat everything (with the exception of gluten), my 3 year old is picky. Probably because he's 3.  Just want to get some more calories in his diet and he loves my shakes in the morning so, I thought I'd get him one that's geared to kids.  We'll see how that goes!

My absolute favorite makeup, Jane Iredale Glow time! This stuff adjusts to your skin tone and stays in place all day long.  And it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin!! I need to get some more though. I accidentally left it on the kitchen table and walked in the room to find my 3 year old squeezing it into his buddie's hand!! Eek!!
