MiniLemon-Thyme Potato Bites

I know you’re all looking for last minute finger foods and easy vegetarian recipes to serve tomorrow night for Christmas Eve, aren’t you?

Nothing too complicated.


Nothing that is going to make you have to run out to the store to fight the crowds.

Nothing that is exhausting.

Just something simple. Yet delicious. And super, duper easy.


You with me?

Okay good.

Got a few potatoes in your pantry? I thought so.


If not, it’ll take you 2 minutes to grab them in the produce section and race to the check out before the looney madness starts in the food stores.


All you need are a few potatoes, olive oil and dried thyme. Not complicated. Not expensive. Not exhausting.

Just slice, coat and pop those sliced potatoes into the oven and you’re done.

And then you can make my homemade ketchup (instead of that processed bottle in your fridge) and dip these babies into the ketchup for a fabulous snack.



It’s that easy.

You’ll thank me in a few days.


Trust me.


They’ll fit so nice and perfect on the table with your other healthy holiday recipes.



Merry Christmas!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo
