What’s orange and sweet and goes great with everything? If you said peaches, you are correct. But spiced sweet potatoes, too! There’s nothing like a sweet potato to make a paleo meal feel especially satisfying. If it weren’t for these fiber-rich, vitamin B6, and C-packed babies, I don’t know how I’d ever get through a Whole 30 or eat paleo, for that matter. They are my hero starchy vegetable. I love how versatile this vegetable is and how you can add them to just about anything and they blend in, adding color and a whole new level of yumminess (yes, that’s a word). High in magnesium, I can feel the calm come over me when a sweet potato rest on my plate. Before I scare you with more details of my love affair with sweet potatoes, let’s get right to it.

I often keep a container of these spiced sweet potatoes in my fridge to toss into meals for more vitamins, iron and magnesium. They add flavor and color to everything! I love to add them to eggs, ground lamb and sautéed greens. Want a great pre-workout snack, take about ½ a cup of these combine with some sliced avocado and top that with an egg. Can we say ah-mazing?
