This easy healthy eating sweet potato harvest recipe is one of my favorites because despite my love for cheesecakes, brownies, and cookies, I am really trying to help my family eat healthier.
We challenged our kids to not eat sugar from now until the end of the year, with the exception of Christmas Eve and Christmas when we have traditional treats. My youngest, who is a huge treat lover, asked if we could go shopping for some healthy “treats”. So I said yes, and we headed off to Sam’s Club to stock up on some good-for-us stuff. He chose oranges and mandarins, and I chose sweet potatoes and sweet mini peppers. Both sweet without the sugar!
I love sweet potatoes, but after trying Paleo and Whole 30 with my sisters I can honestly say I was running out of ways to make them and keep them interesting and appealing!
I made this Sweet Potato Harvest with some of my favorite things, and some additional flavors, while keeping it healthy, easy, and delicious!
