Remember when sweet potatoes weren't really part of your diet?
Yes, us neither because the orange vegetable has been on the menu pretty much everywhere for the past two years.
And the reasons are obvious: on top of fact that they taste divine, sweet potatoes are a nutrition powerhouse.
They are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, vitamin B6, potassium and dietary fibre. We love them baked, stuffed, roasted or fried, basically in every way possible.
Since the Internet is all about #cleaneating and #foodporn at the same time, Instagram is the place to be if you are looking for inspiration on what to make with sweet potatoes.
Looks like a great lunch to bring to the office.
Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Between My daughters birthday and Easter I indulged a little too much so off to a new start and will be sure to try and get in some evening runs this week. Today's lunch is sweet potato and zucchini pancakes over arugula with roasted chickpeas, tomatoes, avocado and olives topped with a little lemon juice, hemp seeds and gomasio. Have a great day!To make the sweet potato and zucchini pancakes grate half a medium zucchini in a bowl and place on thick layer of paper towels. Press out as much of the juice as possible through a strainer or with dry paper towels. Squeezing out all the juice prevents the pancakes from falling apart while cooking. Add zucchini back into the bowl and grate half a sweet potato. Add in 1 @handsomebrookfarm pasture raised egg or egg substitute equivalent, 2 chopped scallions and salt and pepper to taste and blend well. Add 1 to 3 Tbsp. @bobsredmill gluten free flour to help bind any excess juice. Heat 1 tbsp. @harvestbay extra virgin coconut oil on medium high heat. Add heaps of mixture to pan and shape into pancakes. Cook on both sides until golden and transfer to paper towels to remove any excess oil. Makes about 8 pancakes. Serve with Greek yogurt or applesauce!
Courgettes are not the only vegetables that can get the spiralising treatment.
Happy Wednesday! Started this morning with an early morning workout at @purebarreprinceton (btw I'm LOVING their classes) followed by a spiralized sweet potato, broccoli, and parmesan waffle for #WaffleWednesday. I topped it with a pasture raised peppery egg and had some roasted Brussels sprouts and avocado on the side. . . . . . #breakfast #postworkout #waffle #waffles #spiralized #inspiralized #sweetpotato #egg #avocado #brusselsprouts #vegetarian #glutenfree #wholefoods #veggies #food #foodporn #foods4thought #feedfeed #forkyeah #f52grams #eeeeeats #eatclean #cleaneats #cleaneating #healthy #healthyfoodporn #healthyfood #healthychoices #healthyeating
Bacon, maple syrup, guacamole, crumbed feta; it's all about the topping you add to your waffle.
I have a serious #obsession with #waffles . since going #glutenfree I am on a quest to make the best waffles that are both healthy & yummy this weekend I adapted three recipes into a savory #sweetpotato waffle.

An alternative to toasts or bagels for breakfast
There is no way we are ever quitting carbs, but it is all about getting the right ones.
Bring a lot of creaminess and sweetness to your morning smoothie by adding some cooked sweet potatoes
If carrot cakes are so delicious, we can imagine sweet potatoes in muffins must taste divine.
Ya asoman las flores de sauco…¡Preciosas! ¡Me encanta la bebida de sauco o "bieiteiro"! ¡Y no es lo único rico y saludable que podemos preparar con ellas…!
