Have you ever discovered a new favorite food and then continued to eat that new-favorite-food everyday?
What about every meal?
Well, I officially confess that I'm currently a sweet potato addict. With their stunning color, sweet insides, and satisfying effect, how could I not be?! Especially now that I've discovered purple sweet potatoes and that Brett and I have an oven to cook them with, I've gone baked sweet potato crazy! At the beginning of each week I roast a bunch of sweet potatoes at once and store them in the fridge. That way I can put together a hearty and delicious meal in a matter of minutes. They're even delicious cold and can be made sweet or savory.
While my meals on Monday may seem strange to most, they were delicious to me and kept me satisfied and energetic throughout the day.
I love sweet potatoes for breakfast!
I ate one sweet potato and two purple sweet potatoes topped with banana, cinnamon, and my homemade Caramelized Buckwheat Groats. This combination is amazing and if you haven't tried it you, you really should!
I love sweet potatoes for lunch!
Lunch came together in a flash. I heated up some pre-cooked brown rice with leftover cauliflower Alfredo sauce and peas, added a simple side salad and a baked purple sweet potato and lunch was served. Of course, nutritional yeast also made an appearance!
I love sweet potatoes for dinner!
Dinner was another quick and sweet-potato-filled meal. I again flavored my veggies with some pre-made cauliflower Alfredo sauce and had a large sweet potato on the side. Gosh, they're just so good!
And that's it! Sweet potatoes fill me up so well so I usually don't feel the need to snack between meals. Also, because they're so naturally sweet, I never feel the need for an after meal dessert.
