Have only a few minutes to squeeze in some meal prep today or tonight? Roasted sweet potatoes are the no-big-deal of meal prep. With very little effort and time, you can stockpile your fridge with ready-to-eat, nutrient-rich slow carbs that are great with breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Meal prep doesn’t always have to happen in one big session. Micro sessions, squeezed in when you have a little time to spare works great, too!
When I make roasted sweet potatoes, I love to use the Montreal blend from Teeny Tiny Spice Company, or a combo of chili powder & cumin. Whatever spice blend you choose, check the label to make sure it’s made with recognizable ingredients, and none of the junk that’s going to interfere with your health.
If you’re cooking organic potatoes, go right ahead and enjoy the eating the skin, too! It’s a good source of vitamins and minerals such as iron, potassium, and b vitamins, and contains a good dose of fiber, too. Conventional (not organic) potatoes are on the “dirty dozen” list when it comes to pesticide use, so, in that case, avoid eating the skin.
