STUFFED SWEET POTATOES 3 WAYS

Getting bored of your weekly meal prep? Try these easy stuffed sweet potatoes three ways: buffalo chicken, taco beef, and BBQ pork! In less than an hour, you can have a week’s worth of delicious dinners with three flavors to choose from. These meals are high protein and low fat, perfect for post-workout.

Did you know? Sweet potatoes are not any healthier than white potatoes. White potatoes are lower in sugar, while sweet potatoes are higher in vitamin A. White potatoes have more resistant starch, which suppresses appetite, while sweet potatoes have more fiber. Both are “healthy!”

I recommend getting larger eight-ounce sweet potatoes that can hold a lot of filling. I always purchase “organic” sweet potatoes and other root crops because vegetables grown in the ground absorb the most pesticides.

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

For the Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, I boiled chicken until tender and easily shredded with a fork, then added some buffalo hot sauce. I know, boiled chicken doesn’t sound appealing but this method works! Bleu cheese crumbles, homemade yogurt ranch, carrot and celery sticks are the perfect sides!

Taco Beef Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

For the Taco Beef Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, I browned some lean grass-fed ground beef and seasoned it with reduced sodium taco seasoning. Then I loaded it into my baked sweet potatoes with some shredded lettuce, diced tomato, and organic fiesta cheese. Feel free to add some plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream and salsa (I love salsa verde)!

BBQ Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

For the BBQ Pork Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, I braised pork tenderloin in chicken broth and low sugar BBQ sauce, then shredded it. In addition to the sweet potato, I served my BBQ pork with a simple coleslaw. All you need is tri-color coleslaw mix, light mayo, brown mustard, and stevia-erythritol blend (or sweetener of choice). It’s so perfect for summer.
