Fully Loaded Paleo Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potato is one of my favourite Paleo friendly foods to eat. They are available worldwide, cook quickly and are filling. What’s more to like? Oh, and they are incredibly good for health. I read a recipe for loaded jacket potatoes and was inspired. This recipe was a white potato filled to the max with beef chilli, cheese, black beans, tortillas, guacamole, salsa and sour cream! You might be thinking, “that sounds like heaven” but really it’s a heart attack on a plate (imo). My thought was instantly, how can I make that Paleo friendly? Here’s how…

  1. Quinoa is actually a seed cueiavttld by the indigenous people of the Andes mountains in South America. It looks like grain, but it has complete protein that whole grains don’t. It is easily prepared with either water or broth. Many diets use it because it’s low in calories. A one half cup serving is very filling and will not give anyone bloat. My experience with quinoa over the last two years has been exceptional, even when I am a type II diabetic. I hope you try it sometime soon.
