I’m SO excited for you to try this Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes Power Bowl that I’m going to skip (most of) the small talk.

But, first, let me give you 5 good reasons you should skedaddle to your kitchen and make this Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes Power Bowl ASAP…

  1. It’s easy to make yet loaded with deliciousness from all the different layers of flavors.
  2. It’s the ultimate meal, with a nourishing balance of fiber-rich carbs, protein, and healthy fats to keep your metabolism humming, your blood sugar stable, and your mood boosted all day long.

  5. It’s BITCHIN’ man!!!

Ok. So I’m totally dating myself for that last reason.

But, if you were born in the same era as me, you might have your Junior High School Yearbook scribbled with “Have a bitchin’ {or rad or gnarly} summer.”

Raise your hand if you can relate!

If you’re younger than me, let’s say this Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes Power Bowl is bitchin’ because it’s made with one of my current healthy obsessions, Bitchin’ Sauce.

It’s a vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, preservative-free, yada, yada, yada, deliciously awesome sauce!

I used “Heat” Bitchin’ Sauce in my Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes Power Bowl, but you can make it with any flavor~some of my other favorites are Cilantro Chili, Pesto, and Bombay.

Where to Buy Bitchin’ Sauce…

If you’re in San Diego, I love buying it at Costo when the Bitchin’ Sauce Caravan (yes-there is such a thing!) is in town. But, there are many other places to buy it nationwide-check the store locater here.

Let me show you how easy it is to make this Bitchin’ Rosemary Roasted Sweet Potatoes Power Bowl…

  1. Roast your sweet potatoes. You can roast these ahead of time for a super easy meal prep idea.
  2. Layer your bowl with chopped kale or other leafy greens.
  3. Top with roasted sweet potatoes, lemon juice, cottage cheese (or other protein like crispy chickpeas, lentils, pan seared salmon, or roasted chicken), & Bitchin’ Sauce.
  4. Sprinkle on some magnesium rich pumpkin seeds (or any other nuts or seeds), and you’re ready to eat!

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper , to taste
  • 2 tsp finely chopped rosemary
  • 2 cups kale, torn in to bite size pieces
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp Bitchin’ Sauce-, “Heat” or other flavor

    • Use any variety of leafy greens, such as spinach, arugula, romaine lettuce, or Swiss chard.
    • Not into cottage cheese or want to make it a vegan meal? Top with lentils or crispy chickpeas for plant based protein. Or, for a Paleo version, top with cooked salmon or chicken.

    • Don’t have pumpkin seeds? Any nuts or other seeds will be delicious too!
