Sweet potatoes are a nutrient-dense swap for traditional home fried potatoes. They offer a hefty dose of antioxidants to help fight inflammation, as well as fiber and potassium to help promote healthy digestion and heart function. Potassium is also an important electrolyte for maintaining fluid balance during pregnancy.

Make this recipe for a post-workout breakfast or lunch. You can even cook the sweet potatoes the night before for a quick and easy meal the next day.

This recipe is: gluten free, vegetarian (but includes eggs)

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (about 5 cups)*
