I did some experimental baking yesterday. The result was what I can’t help but call “Surprise Fries”.
- 1 Butternut Squash
- 1 Sweet Potato (I used Japanese Sweet Potato this time)
- Olive Oil
Preheat 400 degrees, then begin prep work. Peel and cut your carby roots! I suggest singing while you do this, a practice proven to embed extra vive into organic and local ingredients!
Next, put olive oil into a large bowl, stir the fries until all of them get a good licking from the scrumptiously rambunctious oil. Add cinnamon, cayenne, pepper and salt to your liking.
**Important note: If one of your motives for cooking is to rest and rejuve your spirit after a big day, be sure to sing fervently and embellish the seasoning process with dance moves. At this stage, you should feel quite free to adorn the song with lyrics of your own making. After all, creativity is a serious endeavor, folks… let’s not miss our opportunities to “flow”!
Mix the seasoning to offer each fry it’s due share. Situate your fries evenly on a baking sheet, and bake for 20 mins.
When timer buzzes, use a spatula or tongs to flip your lovelies. Bake for an additional 15-20 mins (depending on your oven). Use this time to prep some green and protein. Here we have red-leaf lettuce, chicken, blueberry, walnut, blue cheese, and home made red wine vinaigrette dressing.
Remove the fries for the final seasoning rumba. Place them back into the seasoning bowl…
**Important note: Consider preparing the fries for the sweetness they are about to absorb. Anything from the literal: “Gather around ladies, here comes the honey!”, to an interpretative: “Woot, woot, holla!” should allow them the appropriate anticipation.
Sprinkle on some honey and give them a stir. Add to oven for additional 5 minutes.
Change the oven setting to “High” broil for the final 1-3 minutes of crisping. Watch closely, as ovens differ. Remove and sit to cool before serving. How about a close look at the final product?
Make the table romantic. As you enjoy your creation, notice which fries absorbed which flavors… await the Surprise! As you eat, celebrate — cooking at home, using local, organic ingredients is a triumph in the over-consumption recovery process!

Where do you go to decide which ethical business operations to support? Who do you ask for tips and suggestions? How do you decide…?:
- Where to shop for groceries, clothing, and household items?
- Which local farms to support?
- Where to enjoy a meal made from organic, local, grass-fed ingredients?

Biocadence is focused on increasing the accessibility of sustainable living, by igniting a path toward over-consumption recovery, behavioral sustainability, global sibling interconnectedness, and quality-of-life design.

I recently downloaded the Raved app- where we can connect with our Facebook network and request/review tips on restaurants/shops/grocery (all types of venues). It helps us be selective about which businesses we support, through deliberate design of the consumption we choose to engage in. I’m excited to give my favorite sustainable businesses a shout out on the Raved app!
Sneak peak on Biocadence restaurant tips, coming soon on the Raved app:
Sink into a couch, sip a wheatgrass cocktail, marvel at a menu dancing with descriptive optimism, and enjoy raw, vegan energy-on-a-plate! You will not want to leave this turbine of positivity, so lengthen your stay with a slice (or two) of my favorite key lime pie, made with creamy avocado and cashew nut crust!
We love Corners Tavern for its delicious grass-fed burger, internationally-inspired brunch selection, mesmerizing menu of desserts, and captivating decor. Don’t forget to muse over the design of the restaurant, accented by re-purposed antiques and murals using Sumi Ink and Tea-Stain on paper!
