Despite having a food blog, I'm actually fairly lazy in the kitchen.
Like I enjoy to cook. A lot. It makes me really happy. But if the recipe has 20 ingredients and requires more than an hour of my time, definitely do not sign me up. Ain't nobody got time (or patience) for that.
I like to keep things simple. And that's why these loaded sweet potatoes and I get along so well.
If you can manage to bake a potato in the oven, which I really hope you can(!), then you can make these healthy loaded potatoes! Because after you bake them, all you have to do is load them up with the goods. Which can be anything you want, really.
I like to make these for a super simple meal after a long day. They are surprisingly tasty with a bit of salsa on top, too! You can get creative here guys!
Sweet potatoes are really good for you, so eat up! Also, I definitely don't count calories, but in case you do - sweet potatoes are roughly only about 130 calories each, skin included. Boom.
I hope you enjoy your weekend!
