About the Recipe
Nachos are a pub food classic, and they don’t have a good reputation for being the healthiest option. But, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way that you can enjoy them even if you’re focused on a healthy diet! Our Sweet Potato Nachos will be sure to remind you of this well-loved pub-style plate.
Fibre and Antioxidants
Regular white or yellow potatoes aren’t ideal for maintaining blood sugar balance. In contrast however, one medium sweet potato contains roughly 6.6g of fibre to help keep blood sugar levels in check. Plus, have you ever wondered what gives sweet potatoes their bright orange colour? They contain antioxidants which are beneficial for lowering inflammation in the body.
Sweet potatoes aren’t the only blood-sugar balancing ingredient in this recipe! We’ve added protein like chicken (or black beans if you’re opting for the vegan/vegetarian option). Protein is essential when it comes to building and repairing muscle, and it helps keep us full for a long period of time.
You can’t have nachos without guacamole! Avocados are an excellent source of B5, vitamin K, copper and healthy fats.
And, don’t let the sweetness of the mango fool you. Mangoes naturally contain enzymes to aid with digestion and improve appetite.
Although this recipe is included in our One-Week Intermittent Fasting Menu Plan, you don’t have to be fasting to enjoy this recipe! Make these nachos as a snack, lunch, dinner, or as party food for your next get-together!
