Refuel Recipes: Quick and Easy Sweet Potato Rounds

Adapted from:  http://bit.ly/32KouU7

Welcome back! Just to review, each month, we’re gonna focus on one key ingredient that’s both delicious and nutritious and teach you how to incorporate it into your diet in a realistic, sustainable, tasty way! 

This month: Sweet potatoes! ICYMI, this tuberous root vegetable (although for nutrition purposes we should consider it a starch) is packed with slow-burning carbohydrates, vitamins C, D, and tons of beneficial vitamins and minerals. They are wonderfully versatile and, when stored correctly, can stay good for weeks or even months. 

For a full recap, check out our first sweet potato recipe here. 

Our second recipe is so quick, so easy, and so dang versatile. Load ‘em up with your favorite meats, spread peanut butter, greek yogurt and granola for a balanced breakfast, or use them as chips for your favorite spreads. 

These little guys are perfect for any occasion, and only require three simple ingredients: Sweet potatoes, salt and your favorite cooking fat!
