Hello, my name is Maria Fernanda and I love foods with pretty colors. Am I the only one? Purple has been always been one of my favorite colors and when it comes to foods I love purple veggies as well, they are so pretty! Mother Nature does a great job creating gorgeous natural colors, no need to artificial chemicals!
Why choose something artificial when we've got all the colors and nutrients! These are super easy to make so there's no excuse to embrace what nature is giving us, plus all the goods to our bodies. We've only got one and it does a great job keeping us alive.
I like to say that it's better to eat the rainbow than to catch the end of one, and today I tried something fun with purple sweet potatoes. Have you ever tried them? Besides being pretty they are packed with antioxidants.
In these recipe I decided to use vegan ricotta cheese but you can use normal one as substitute, the taste will be still amazing. And of course with simple ingredients just like a love making my recipes, plus being low carb and low sugar since I used monk fruit. Feel free to swap monk fruit for coconut sugar if you like it better!
