Sweet Potato Hash


I have been having a love affair with sweet potatoes lately.
They are packed full of amazing nutrients and they taste SO good.
They also are perfect for diabetics.
Sweet potatoes are a low-glycemic index (GI) food.

 The glycemic index measures how quickly certain foods release carbohydrates into the body.
High-GI foods cause blood sugar levels to spike, while low-GI foods release glucose slowly into the bloodstream.

You could easily skip the turkey and this would be a yummy vegetarian side dish.
I made it for breakfast, but you could easily serve it anytime of day!

    I made sweet potato hash a couple months ago, but I love this version with turkey! Sadly, both turkey and sweet potatoes are a splurge here…of course. What’s that on the side, eggs? Looks like a seriously awesome breakfast!

      I hear you Jess. I smuggle in the sweet potatoes. And since I’ve had to go home quite a bit lately and they last so long in the fridge….I have a nice stockpile going on! :-) Yup…it’s an egg scramble on the side!! We are HUGE egg eaters!
