The Benefit of Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a vegetable that is has taken me a while to get on board with. For a long time I avoided them like the plague, I’m not sure why. I assumed they’d taste too earthy and I love regular potatoes so never really saw the need to swap. I was talked into making sweet potato fries about a year ago and discovered that I’ve basically spent years missing out on one of the tastiest veg out there!

In addition to all of the stuff it does for your insides, it can also help your mood as it’s full of magnesium which helps with relaxation. Sweet potato skins are also full of fibre, which makes this recipe even better!

I enjoyed these Cajun Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potato Skins for lunch this week, hot straight out of the oven which is a nice change from cold office lunches. This happy change has come as a result of a very exciting change in my life! I now officially work for myself, running a digital communications company which I have set up totally on my own. It’s a big change and as ever with big changes in my life I have spent the last few weeks eating like crap…because that’s what I do when I get stressed!
