½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks and then fold them into the batter. Ladle ¾ cup of batter into the waffle maker. Cook for about 3 minutes and serve with the toppings of your choice.

KALE SALAD:

2 cups tri-colored quinoa

3 bunches of kale

1 gala apple

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

1 cup candied pecans

½ cup dry cranberries

Dressing:

Juice of 1 lemon

½ cup olive oil

Sea salt and pepper to taste

Add components into a large bowl, along with the candied pecans and dry cranberries. Mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a Mason jar. Shake the jar and pour the dressing over the salad. Serve.

SWEET POTATO GNOCCHI:

16 ounces ricotta cheese

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

2 cups flour

1 medium or large sweet potato

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Topping:

Melted butter & sage (or sauce of choice)

Parmesan (optional)

Directions: In a large bowl, stir the ricotta, parmesan, nutmeg and flour together. Mash the cooked sweet potato (oven: 45 minutes, microwave: pierced and cooked for 6-8 minutes) in a separate bowl with a ricer or fork. Add the sweet potato into the cheese, nutmeg and flour mixture. Mix until fully combined, however do not overwork the dough. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and divide into 3-4 sections. Roll each section into a long rope and cut into ¾ inch pieces. Cook the gnocchi in boiling water for 1-2 minutes or until they reach the surface. Remove and drain. Lightly brown the butter or heat the sauce of choice in a pan and coat the freshly cooked gnocchi. Garnish with sage.
