Fully Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Recipes

If there's ever been a time where you've thought, "Damn, I wish there was more I could do with sweet potato"... well your day just got a whole lot better!

 

There's two ways to go about this recipe...

 

1. Leave it how it is but change the protein filling and spices so that you don't get bored of the same meal. Try pesto shredded chicken or cheesy, scrambled tofu (made with nutritional yeast) next time!

2. Change your spud boat to thick, crunchy wedges. Chuck them in a bowl and let your filling melt over the fries for another 5 mins in the oven... hungry yet?

Sweet potato is great for the gut & also a fantastic way to get your carbohydrates in for the day!
