Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Trying to find new ways to eat vegetables so I won’t get tired of them is…tiring. I need to plan for 3 meals a day but a snack or two so that I’m eating every 4 hours. This is crucial for glucose balance, especially for those of us with a cranky pancreas. I love sweet potatoes and wanted to have a few wedges on hand for workout carbs. After checking out Cooking Light, I found a great recipe that uses some heat to give them a little kick. I also wanted to pair that with coconut oil. This is amazing stuff. I’ve never used it before, but had an offer from Swanson vitamins to try some of their products. I bought their brand of Coconut oil and this was my first time to use it.

I should have opened that jar a LONG time ago.

    I love roasted sweet potatoes. I always forget that I do and never make them, for some reason.
