Getting tired of the same old breakfast routine? Mix it up with a Breakfast Sweet Potato stuffed with granola and almond butter!
Make a meal out of a sweet potato!
Once a week I bake sweet potatoes to have on hand for a quick meal. They can be eaten as breakfast (pictured above!) or topped with beans and veggies for a complete dinner (as seen here!). You can even use them to make brownies (once again, as seen here!). Sweet potatoes are so versatile and healthy, they go down in my book of superfoods!
Superfood Sweet Potatoes:
~Great source of vitamin C
~Provides a healthy dose of fiber
~Provide B vitamins, manganese, biotin and copper
~High in antioxidants, especially carotenes
~May help stabilize glucose levels in the body

Did you know you can even make sweet potatoes in a crock pot! Simply add 1/4 cup water to the bottom of a crock pot, add washed sweet potatoes and cook on low for 6 hours, or until tender. Having baked sweet potatoes to come home to after a long day would make for such an easy dinner! Or cook overnight to have breakfast ready in the morning! Cooked sweet potatoes will last 3-5 days refrigerated.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend
