Superfoods: Ten Sweet Potato Recipes simplyfitanclean

Sweet potatoes are a great addition to a healthy diet, whether you’re eating clean, eating Paleo, doing Weight Watchers, or just trying to add more “superfoods” to your fare.  Sweet potatoes are full of vitamin C, E, beta carotene, and a whole list of other nutrients as well as being fat and cholesterol free!

Here are some great recipes to work more sweet potatoes into your diet.

BREAKFAST

Sweet Potato Mini Muffins from My Love for Cooking are a good way to help sneak sweet potatoes into a treat the kids will love.  (I think these are even better when replacing oil with applesauce and adding a touch of pumpkin spice.)

Sweet Potato Hash via Thyme of Taste is basically a healthy, delicious twist on hash browns.

LUNCH

Kale and Sweet Potato Clam Chowder from butterflyfood makes me want to wrap up in a scarf and go chop lumber with my bare hands to stock the crackling fire.  (No, I don’t have a fireplace or really a winter.)

This Sweet Potato Granola by Minimalist Baker is highly customizable and can I say really well photographed?  Granola never looked so photogenic.

I’ve share this link before, but since I’ve followed her advice several times since then, Heather Homefaker’s Sweet Potato Fries deserve a repost.

DINNER

I am literally changing my dinner plans right now to make these Baked Black Bean and Sweet Potato Flautas from Peas and Crayons.

DESSERTS

This Sweet Potato Kugel Parfait is incredibly quick to throw together if you’ve already made the kugel from What Jew Wanna Eat, but it can also be made with some plain sweet potatoes with brown sugar.

Doesn’t this Sweet Potato Cake by Sweet Tea and Cornbread look amazing?  It could definitely find its way onto my Thanksgiving dessert table.

Note: Not all of these recipes fall under the category of “healthy,” but all of them can be modified in small ways to  fit any style of eating.
