It’s the middle of January and I am at the half way point of my Whole30! If I’m being honest though, this hasn’t really been that hard for me. I attribute most of my success to my very first love - the sweet potato.
I’m a hard core sweet potato lover - like REALLY hard core. I like to think my hair has maintained this orange/red color due to the sheer amount of sweet potatoes I’ve consumed over the years (possibility??).
In my usual post-work rush to make dinner, I pick up a sweet potato or 2 (depends on if the husband needs lunch the next day) and an extra sharp knife and start cubing away! Nothing too snazzy, sometimes they turn out like cute little triangles and sometimes they turn out looking like a shape I first learned about in 9th grade geometry class that I still can’t pronounce. This was all before I baked my very first sweet potato in the oven - it was beyond easy! No knives involved (also reduces the likelihood of a trip to the ER) and ready in about the same amount of time. Then, I decided to go wild and throw some buffalo chicken in there and drizzle a lil bit of homemade paleo ranch dressing on top (are you drooling yet?).
I recommend saving some of this buffalo chicken baked sweet potato and throwing it on top of some other goods throughout the week because it alone is also some top notch stuff.Print
