Banana + Blueberry Stuffed Sweet Potato

I’ve been on a sweet potato kick lately… and for good reason! Besides being rich in fiber this sweet-tasting root vegetable contains an array of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium, and they’re a good source of most of our B vitamins and vitamin C. Sweet potatoes are also high in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed.

 

Start your morning off with a Baked Sweet Potato stuffed with blueberries, bananas, and cashew butter. Enjoy the tasty goodness that these nutrient dense root vegetables provide.
