We recently discovered a great new and nutritious carb source to help fill one’s carbohydrate Macros bucket: organic purple SWEET potatoes! These suckers are tasty, nutrient dense, and offer some carb variety and may be purchased at your local Sprouts or Whole Foods markets…
Here’s a quick and easy preparation guide:
1.) Heat oven to 375 degrees.
2.) Clean potatoes with a food brush under hot water. Give a spray of veggie wash (or lemon juice) to clean any bacteria off the skins.
3.) With a sharp knife, poke 6-8 small insertions in the potato.
4.) Wrap each potato in aluminum foil and place in the heated oven.
5.) Cook for 90-120 min then enjoy with some Brummel & Brown Greek Yogurt Butter and cinnamon. Both are Macros friendly!
Note: The cooked potatoes may be made up in advance, cooled, and placed in the refrigerator for enjoyment up to 6 days from a food-safety standpoint. Re-heat either in the microwave or, better yet, slice up the cooled potato, place on an oven-safe plate, and place under the oven broiler for a few minutes to warm and crisp up! Enjoy again!
