Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite veggies! They are the perfect food for weight loss, and that’s why the 17 Day Diet has them listed as an approved food starting on Cycle 2!

You can do so much with sweet potatoes.

Sweet potatoes are a dieters dream food!

You can place them in the slow cooker on high for a few hours and have them ready for dinner.

You can also mash them into a yummy sweet potato puree where you control all the ingredients rather than using a canned puree.

And you can also make fries with them (baked is better and air fried is best!).

Sweet Potatoes can be used in so many ways, but roasted is one of my faves!

Today we’ll be roasting them so the golden brown crispiness gives them a yummy, nutty flavor! YUMMM!

One of my all-time favorite ways to prepare veggies is roasting – the flavor is out of this world!
