Last night I made a big pot of African Peanut Potato Stew. I got the recipe here: http://fatfreevegan.com/blog/2010/02/25/african-peanut-potato-stew/
At this time of year, I have a lot of sweet potatoes from the CSA. I do enjoy the typical Thanksgiving style sweet potatoes – a casserole baked with brown sugar crumble – but that’s not how I want to eat my sweet potatoes on the other 364 days of the year. This recipe is a good way to enjoy sweet potatoes in a different way. Plus, it includes chickpeas, which are a favorite of mine!
Yum! Yum! Yum!
After dinner, I made a beeline for the television to watch “The Biggest Loser.” I had never seen it until last season, but I quickly became a fan. I don’t watch it every week, but I have seen it often enough that I wanted to see last night’s finale! I also got to see last week’s episode. Talk about inspiring! I have been running for a little more than two years, and I haven’t run farther than ten miles in one stretch. Seeing the four finalists run a marathon was awesome! I don’t even know them, but I feel proud of them!
The transformations are amazing! I like hearing the contestants talk about the fact that they’ve begun a new lifestyle. I am not a fan of the whole “going on a diet” idea. A lifestyle that includes eating healthy foods and being active sounds more enjoyable, more sustainable, and probably more healthy as well. Congratulations to Patrick and all the other contestants! You have inspired many!
Do you ever watch “The Biggest Loser”? What do you think of the show?
