There is two misconception that everyone I talk to has, and that is that healthy food can’t taste good and they can’t eat carbs. When people talk about eating healthy the first thing people think of is food that is bland and tasteless. They also believe that they have to give up carbs because so many diet trends follow a “no carb” rule.

Good news!

You get to keep eating carbs, and your food can still be delicious!

The key is knowing what carbs to eat, so I want to share with my favorite carb and three amazing ways you can include them in your diet.

Top 3 Sweet Potato Recipes

My favorite carb to eat is the sweet potato because it is perfect for weight loss, comes in several different stypes, and is so versatile you can make almost anything with it! Here is how to make a sweet potato…

Sweet Potato Fries

1 medium sweet potato
1 tbsp coconut oil
Rosemary

Preheat your oven to 450º.

Cut your sweet potato into strips and toss them in a bowl with coconut oil so that the fries are coated. Spread your fries onto a baking strip and sprinkle rosemary over the top for flavor. Bake for 35 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Cubes

1 medium sweet potato
1 tbsp coconut oil
Cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 375º

Cube your sweet potato and coat them in coconut oil. Lay out on a pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and bake for 40 minutes, turning them over halfway through.

Loaded Sweet Potato

1 medium sweet potato
3 oz of cooked chicken
1/4 cup of spinach
1 tbsp diced shallot
1 tbsp grass-fed butter

Preheat your oven to 400º.

Use a for to put holes into your sweet potato and place in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour. You’ll know it’s done when the potato is soft. While your potato is cooking saute your chicken, shallots and grass-fed butter in a pan until the spinach begins to wilt.  Remove your potato from the oven and split it open. Top your sweet potato with your spinach, shallots, and chicken.

Why the Sweet Potato is a Great Weight Loss Carb

The sweet potato is such a great carb because it is low in calorie and high in fiber, meaning that it will help to keep you full for longer periods of time, making it harder for you to over eat. Plus, the don’t spike your blood sugar because it has a low glycemic index. Foods that make your blood sugar spike are also linked to weight gain, which is why most process carbs are connected to weight gain.

Not only is the sweet potato great for losing weight, but it is easily affordable and readily available. There is a great misconception that eating healthy means spending a ton of money, but if you shop smart and know what to buy, then eating whole foods can be just as budget friendly, if not more so, than the foods you were eating before. Sweet potatoes are a cheap food that will fill you up and keep you full throughout your day.

Now that you know why you should be eating the sweet potato and you have 3 great ways to prepare it, you can start to exchange your processed carbs for this healthier, tastier option.

If you’re on a Custom Meal Plan or following my Approved Foods List, then you’ve probably noticed I add sweet potatoes throughout your entire plan. And, if you’ve been listening to the mainstream media and attempted fad diets in the past, you’ve probably been afraid to consume carbs because it seems that so many weight loss diets are focused on minimal carbs or no carbs. This may work for awhile, but eventaully you may hit a weight loss plateau and that what we want to avoid. I want to make sure you are continually seeing results so that you can reach your goals and lose the weight, once and for all.

Of course, everyone is different, and we are all at the various stages and require different things. This is where Custom Meal Plans help because they are made for your body and your goals. Being on a plan will insure that you are not overcosuming your carbs. Just because the sweet potato is perfect for weight loss and can help you avoid a weight loss plateau, doesn’t mean it can’t be overconsume. Over eating sweet potatoes can have a negative impact on your weight loss, so be sure you know how much you should be eating. The amount of carbs you should be eating depends on you because every one is different. How much you should consume depends on your goals, your body, and how much you have to lose.
