Baked Sweet Potato with Avocado Mash and Black beans Recipe for a nourishing lunch or dinner.

I love making baked sweet potatoes for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. So easy and quick to make and full of so much nourishment. You can top them with so many things, depending on what you feel like. This time I added avocado mash with black beans, red pepper and spinach. So delicious!


Unlike regular potatoes, sweet potatoes actually count as one of your five-a-day. They’re naturally sweet-tasting and they won’t disrupt your blood sugar levels.
