Happy New Year everyone!! There is so much newness in the air! I don’t know about you but after the holidays it just feels good to eat lighter! My goal is to eat a more balanced diet which will not be hard considering December felt like cookies and cocktails on repeat, ha! When I eat a lot of sugary foods I crave them, so I breaking that cycle this month. 

I created this sweet potato parfait with the intention of it being an easy grab and go breakfast however it was sweet enough to be dessert and help curb my sweet tooth… damn those Chocolate Crinkle Cookies.. haha! So in order to not gravitate towards the junk, I decided to meal prep these Sweet Potato Parfaits and have when I am craving something sweet.

The best part about these Sweet Potato Parfaits is that it uses minimal ingredients. The sweet potato layers are like pudding. To top it off I used yogurt and a quick homemade topping for some extra crunch. This parfait is so filling, be sure to keep some extra topping close by!

Sweet Potato Benefits

After baking sweet potatoes I put them into the food processor, no peeling of the skin. The skins are full of vitamins and minerals including potassium, vitamin C, zinc and B vitamins. Eating sweet potatoes has many positive effects on your health including but not limited to gut health, healthy hair & skin and anti-inflammatory properties.
