The amazing sweet potato!
Rich in Vitamin C, B6, Vitamin A, potassium and beta carotene, it’s a wonder food for healthy bones, teeth, digestion, energy, cell production, stress resistance, immune function, metabolism, and healthy arteries, blood, muscle and nerve function! How’s that for a power punch!
Of course, preparing sweet potatoes can often pack on the pounds, so keep them simple – they’re rich with flavor all by themselves. Personally, I like to bake a sweet potato in a paper towel, and run out the door! But here are 2 preparations – 1 sweet and 1 savory – to keep ’em clean and simple:
Sweet: (forget the marshmallows and sugar)
Heat oven to about 400 degrees. Poke some holes in the potato, brush with a tiny bit of Organic Olive Oil and bake it!
Once baked, cut lengthwise, mash up the inside a bit with a fork and drizzle a little Organic Agave Nectar and Cinnamon over it! Easy!
Heat the over to about 450 degrees.
Cut your 4-5 sweet potatoes into cubes or slices and put them into a bowl.
Coat with Organic Olive Oil, a little Rosemary, Himalayan Sea Salt and Ground Pepper (sometimes I add some red chili flakes or cayenne pepper because I like a little spice in my life)
Put the coated potatoes on cookie pan covered in foil.
Bake until the center is soft and the top is brown.
So yummy! A great side with a bunch of greens and some organic roasted chicken or wild salmon.
