Hey guys! I’ve been getting a TON of questions from many of you regarding easy vegan recipes & how to transition to a plant-based diet the right way. Vegan Stuffed Sweet Potato Boats are my fave because they are full of fiber, protein, flavor and cost less than $15 to make!
When transitioning to a vegan or plant-based lifestyle you really should start slow. A slow and steady pace while transitioning will help take the pressure off your journey. It’ll also give you more creative juices while experimenting with different flavors and recipes. You’re going to want to refrain from overspending and overbuying. This makes sweet potato the perfect veggie to have on hand. Whether you’re newly plant-based, transitioning or have followed this lifestyle for 20 years it doesn’t matter!
Sweet Potatoes are so versatile that you can enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, snack and/or dinner. They can last in the fridge up to 1 week after cooking, making it the perfect meal or snack prep addition. Sweet potatoes also cost less than $5 whether by the pound, bag or individually bought. Splurge on organic if you’d like because they won’t break the bank at all 🙂
You can stuff these babies with anything you’d like! I chose quinoa as my whole grain complex carb. Complex carbs are essential to any diet. They release glucose more slowly into the bloodstream, offering a steadier source of energy to keep blood sugar levels stable. Say bye to hunger pains If you’re not a fan of quinoa you can substitute it for brown rice or another whole grain complex carb. I used Better Bean Co., Roasted Chipolte Beans for delicious fiber/protein and avocado as my healthy fat.
These Vegan Stuffed Sweet Potato Boats made the PERFECT post workout meal! Tip: I always cook my quinoa with veggies, garlic, pepper sauce and sea salt. Lord knows I couldn’t eat it any other way.
Here’s the recipe! Let me know if you try it!
