Back to the basics with my blog, our food, life in general, and Enjoying this Journey...

I confess.

When I first started autoimmune protocol I didn’t eat sweet potatoes. I don’t even remember why. I just didn’t. But I eventually began eating them every now and then. Cut to recently, I noticed during the 21-Day Sugar Detox {level 3} that I was lagging considerably. So I am of the opinion that I need some starches {carbs} to function optimally, have energy to keep up with the littles, keep up with Bugsy’s demand in the milk department {he still nurses like a champ!}, etc. I am going to try adding in other starches and see how well they work with/for me since sweet potatoes are more sugary than they are starchy.

But for now, I have sweet potatoes in my carb corner.

Sunday’s breakfast was pretty amazing. While The Mister manned the bacon, I prepped the rest of our breakfast. Avocado, grapefruit – check. I wanted to mix things up and wanted a little starch, so I made a quick sweet potato mash. It truly couldn’t be simpler!

The Mister said he could eat this every day. I don’t know that I could, ha! I like variety… but it certainly was delicious. Luv shared hers with Bugsy and they both gobbled it up.
