I’m eating a lot of sweet potatoes these days. I need them to get plenty of nutrients and calories, because I’ve lost a lot of weight (more than I needed to) on this elimination diet. I’m introducing new foods very slowly (one every couple of weeks), so right now I’m relying on sweet potatoes to provide more calories and fill me up each day.
Obviously you can prepare sweet potatoes any number of ways – baked, fried, mashed – but my favorite way to prepare them and make a lot at once is in our electric skillet from Saladmaster. It’s simple and I end up with a ton of sweet potatoes that last me for several days. The result is really tasty and sweet — a bonus when you aren’t eating treats or sugar. It reheats nicely too.
