Loaded Breakfast Sweet Potato

This loaded breakfast sweet potato is one of the tastiest, easiest, and nutritious breakfasts out there! Ever since I watched the Blue Zone documentary on Netflix, I have been obsessed with incorporating purple sweet potatoes into my diet to get the antioxidant benefits. I didn't realize that they were so good for you, filling, and also low calorie! Top with Greek yogurt and nuts for additional healthy fats and proteins!


Ingredients for your luteal phase: sweet potato. During the luteal phase, you want to focus on fiber-rich foods to support the large intestine in flushing out excess estrogen and consume nutrient-dense food as your body's metabolism naturally speeds up.

Sweet potatoes are a slow-burning carbohydrate, which is a great addition to your diet in the luteal phase when your metabolism naturally speeds up so you may find yourself getting hungrier faster. They are also packed with vitamin B which helps boost your mood and energy levels, which many women find themselves lacking as they get closer to their menstrual phase. And if you've watched the Blue Zone documentary on Netflix - you know that the purple variety has the highest levels of antioxidants!

Ingredients

  • 1 purple sweet potato

  • ½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt

  • 2 tsp almond butter

  • 1 Tbsp granola

  • 1 tsp maple syrup

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F

  2. Use a fork to poke holes all around your sweet potato.
