Sweet Potato Bowl

1 cup

Happy national registered dietitian day! I love my career & am very grateful to be apart of such a great community!

On another note, every week I meal prep a couple dishes I can add into different meals. This week I made mashed sweet potatoes & have used it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Here's an idea on how to incorporate sweet potatoes into your breakfast or dessert that is NOT boring. Did I mention there's no added sugar? I usually make this in the Fall but there's no rule saying I can't make it year round.

Now, if you are diabetic or watching your carbs/blood sugar, this meal is high in carbs. However, it is a natural source of complex carbohydrates with added fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
