Breakfast Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are one of the cheapest and healthiest foods you can get your hands on almost anywhere in the world and year-round!

They're so healthy that no matter how you cook them (except for deep frying), they'll still be so good for you! So prepare them however you like, but if you don't mind either way then the best way to prepare sweet potatoes is to boil them!

boiling sweet potatoes retains most of its antioxidants while giving less of a blood sugar spike. Eating sweet potatoes raw is the best way to have all the vitamins and antioxidants, but our bodies might not be able to absorb all of it when it's raw. Besides, how many raw sweet potatoes can you eat compared to boiled.

For more information about the best way to cook sweet potatoes, refer to Dr. Michael Greger's video

NOTE: Please keep the skin on!!! the skin has about 10 times more nutrients than the flesh. 

One of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes is to have them for breakfast! It's so easy and quick. Just boil your sweet potatoes in the morning while you get ready, then come back and prep the toppings you want to use. That's it.

To super power this recipe, I included a variety of toppings that you can choose from. Pick whichever you like and have on hand.
