This recipe is not only delicious, it’s nutritious! Sweet Potatoes are loaded with beta carotene, a vital skin healing nutrient. These fries are based off the infamous Medical Medium Sweet Potato Fries, but with a spiced up lil’ twist!
When it’s just me, I make these without oil. but today I made a large batch using coconut oil for my family to snack on.
This recipe makes 1 batch of fries.
2 large sweet potatoes
2 tsp Frontier Coop Curry Powder
1 tsp Frontier Coop Smoked Paprika
1/2 tsp Bragg’s Sprinkle Spice
1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 425°
2. Slice sweet potatoes up into wedges
3. Steam for 5 minutes on the stove
4. Remove from heat, drain water, and add spices + oil to the pan
5. Smother your fries with the spices + oil!
6. Lay them out on a baking sheet (use parchment paper if you are going oil free)
7. Bake for 35 minutes
I don’t usually flip mine half way through, but you can for a more even bake! To get an extra crisp, broil them for an extra minute or so.
Dip in ketchup, maple syrup, guac, or all 3!
These babies won some hearts around here today, I hope you enjoy them too!!

Whether you have come across this blog post because you are seeking to heal acne, hair loss, or other seemingly “surface level” symptoms — or maybe something deeper, symptoms that keep you from taking care of your family, living your life, and pursuing your passions — you can do this.
But like all worthwhile accomplishments, it will take time.
And that’s really what I want to talk with you about today.
I want to talk about how healing takes time and how cultivating a mindset for the long run is important. Much like you train for a marathon versus a sprint, this journey takes a unique endurance called determination.
And unlike successes that you can show off, hang on your wall, and brag about to your friends— your healing process lives quietly inside of you, but shines out in everything you do and in every life you touch. Your determination for life begets life.
If you are here reading this, I assume you are a very determined person. And because of that, I really respect you— and know you are going to reach your goals!
It is easy to get frustrated, scared, and feel trapped when the journey has felt so long. This is your sign to not give up!
Instead, I invite you to consider the possibilities of the gifts you are being offered through enduring and overcoming your struggles.
Nurturing a mindset that is focused on longevity is your superpower in this journey.
Prepping for your journey ☼
When we understand that healing takes time, it removes a lot of stress surrounding why something doesn’t seem to be working or when it will.
Preparing ourselves for the commitment to a healing process takes some deep digging into our souls. Just know it’s okay to go there— it’s okay to feel it all; the frustrations, the grief, the hope, and the joys. It’s also okay to ask for help from others and to ask questions.
This preparation can also take some far reaching— up to the heavens! Our willingness to experience a better quality of life will often lead us into our spiritual center.
This is where we find ourselves opening to ask for the support and help we need from god and the universe.
I have witnessed in my own life that by adopting an attitude of willingness, new learning experiences have opened for me; mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Nurturing your mindset ♡
It is very easy to get distracted by what isn’t isn’t working.
During your healing time, instead of focusing on your external appearance (especially if you are struggling with skin conditions, weight gain or loss) take this opportunity to discover your beauty in other unique ways.
If you are dealing with something invisible, like anxiety, take this opportunity to spend time connecting to your own inner being to discover what really lights you up and brings you peace.
It is okay to step back from the roles you are used to playing in your life. This calling to look deeper into yourself will provide a priceless foundation for your life.
Try to take this time to pause and see what other opportunities are present for you. Trust that your dreams will be waiting for you— that you are actually being shaped for them at this very moment.
I felt a deep calling early in life to work in the beauty industry— but when I started struggling with acne breakouts I lost confidence in my work. I knew appearance was important in my job and was crumbling under that pressure.
So you know what? I left the industry. I started exploring meditation, yoga, new ways of eating, new ideas around spirituality, painting, dancing and music. I took a job at a local wellness center and even started my own etsy business creating apparel.
I had no idea where life was leading me but I refused to just give up. I was determined to follow my path, despite it not being the one I had planned.
Without that experience, I would have never learned so much about who I am and what really lights me up! My resistance really was (and still is) my greatest teacher— it has led me deeper and deeper into my truest sense of self.
There, I discovered a form of confidence that was absent from my being. A confidence that had nothing to do with how I looked.
Finding our balance on a healing path takes practice. It takes falling down and rising up, each time a little higher.
With the foundation of a longevity mindset— knowing that this will take time and require for you to take a break— you can be more compassionate with yourself as you are called to let go in certain areas of your life.
Remember, this letting go is only for a season— not forever. Trust that all the most beautiful, loved and treasured parts of you will be in safe keeping.
This compassion and understanding will help you to embrace something new; a healing path created just for you, a path that you weren’t even aware existed!
Healing may be three steps forward and two steps back, but your baby steps will add up. The fruits of your determination will be unimaginably satisfying and sweet.
All you need to do right now is to just keep going— slow and steady is the key.
This is a grain-free, fat-free, vegan SWEET POTATO crust, which is based off my original recipe for a potato crust pizza which you can find here.
That link will provide you with the fat-free “cheese” topping, as well!
I made this modified version last night for the first time and I am super in love.
If you crave a little more sweetness to the overall taste of your pizza, this does it!
The only drawback is that because sweet potatoes are not as water-rich as potatoes, you will need to add water to your blender to get it into a liquid consistency— and then strain it all out...
If you have a Vitamix you can probably get away with not adding water. I have a Ninja and definitely needed to add a little.
But trust me, the extra effort is worth it!
This recipe makes 1 mini pizza. Double it for a full size!
2 sweet potatoes (medium size)
1 russet potato (small size)
Oven: 425 degrees | Time: 20-30 minutes
1. Peel your sweet and russet potatoes.
2. Place in a high speed blender + liquify.
Tip: If you don’t have a Vitamix you will need to add extra water. Add a little at a time. I used about 1/8 cup. The less water, the better!
3. Strain liquid through a fine muslin or cotton cloth. Squeeze out all the water you can! You will want to get your “dough” as dry as possible otherwise you will have a soggy crust.
4. Using your fingers, spread the dough out into a pizza like shape. Aim for a 1/4 inch thickness. Make sure your edges aren’t super thin, otherwise they will burn!
5. Start checking it around the 15 minute point to be sure your edges aren’t burning. Mine takes 25 minutes total time. You can flip it around 20 minutes to ensure an even bake.
6. Add your toppings and enjoy! [sidenote: I did not add the pizza seasoning to the crust like in my first recipe, so in this one you can simply sprinkle Frontier Co-Op Pizza Spice right on top — or add it to your cheese topping]

I love sharing my meals with you guys, but because they are so simple they usually do not require a fancy recipe. However, when it came to this plant-based, fat-free, grain-free, dairy-free pizza— a good recipe share was a must!
This recipe is not intended to perfectly mimic your favorite traditional deep dish pizza, but it will hit the spot if you have been on a healing diet and avoiding inflammatory foods. It is crispy, has all the savory pizza flavors, and is Medical Medium protocol friendly!
It’s been a loooong time since I have had a traditional pizza, so I have to give that fair warning. However, it was a very positive sign when my non-vegan brother tried it and gave me two thumbs up!
There is not any dairy cheese or nut-based cheeze in this— although you are welcome to add all the goodies you’d like on top of this crust.
The most indulgent part of this meal is the sea salt, which can be adjusted to your preference. This recipe is intended to create a healthy, healing pizza!
I was inspired by two amazing accounts on Instagram @breakingfreewithwhitney and @holisticallythriving while creating this— thank you both for sharing so many of your epic creations.
Makes 1 personal pizza or 3 pizza bites. The bites bake better, but the personal pizza is much more traditional and fun! The personal pizza size will take some extra nurturing and watching to ensure it is cooking evenly. Tip: Be sure to build your crust up just slightly, to prevent burning.
1/2 head of cauliflower
2 large russet potatoes
1 tsp Frontier Co-Op Pizza Spice
1/2 tsp himalayan sea salt
Oven Temp: 425 degrees | Time: 25-30 min
1. Cut cauliflower into florets and blend in a high-speed blender. Blend into “rice” consistency.
2. Use a fine muslin cheesecloth or thin washcloth (I love the washcloth thing) to strain the extra water out of the blended cauliflower. Squueze out as much water out as possible.
3. Peel and chop raw potatoes into small cubes. Place in a high speed blender. Blend into a purée.
4. Strain out excess water from the potatoes using your straining cloth. You will end up with a small amount of potato “dough” after straining that should equal about 1 cup.
5. Mix 1.5 cups of your cauliflower into your potato dough.
5. Add pizza seasonings and sea salt as desired. Mix well!
6. Using a fork, gently press out your dough into desired pizza shape on a baking pan. Tip: I line my pan with parchment paper so that I do not need to use oil.
7. Get your crust about 1/2 inch thick (or a little less is fine) Tip: Using your fork, poke little holes in the dough. This will help it cook more evenly.
8. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Your timing will depend on how crispy you want your crust. It helps to flip your crust around the 20 minute mark to ensure that everything is cooking evenly.
FAT-FREE “CHEEZE” TOPPING INGREDIENTS
1 large russet potato
1/2 cup blended up cauliflower (from your leftovers!)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tbs coconut aminos
2 tsp lemon juice
a dash of himalayan sea salt (to taste)
FAT-FREE “CHEEZE” TOPPING DIRECTIONS
1. Chop up and steam 1 large russet potato.
2. After it’s done, add it to 1/2 cup of blended up cauliflower (what you have left over from making the dough)
3. Add spices, coconut aminos, and lemon juice.
4. Mash together.
This is basically glorified mash potatoes!
TO SIMPLIFY IT: The addition of cauliflower adds a bit of texture but you can omit this if you aren’t big on cauliflower. Mixing together lemon juice + potatoes + garlic powder on its own is highly satisfying. Or, you can use your pre-made cheese of choice!
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp Frontier Co-Op Pizza Spice
a dash of himalayan sea salt (to taste)
* if you like sweetness in your sauce you can always add 1 tsp + of apple juice
TO SIMPLIFY : just spreading a light layer of tomato paste as a “sauce” or your store-bought sauce of choice works, too.
The rest of this recipe is pretty self-explanatory. Just layer your toppings of choice and you have your pizza!
I personally love tomatoes, green onions, red onions, spinach, and sprouts!
Tip: After I add my raw toppings, I put this back in the oven for about 5 minutes just to warm it up.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoy!
