Sweet Potatoes for Diabetics – Chili Lime Recipe
Sweet Potatoes for Diabetics
I don’t know about you, but I sure do love sweet potatoes and yams, the problem is every time I eat them, my sugars sky rocket. I was looking for an alternative to sweet potatoes for diabetics. I was thrilled to find butternut squash has half the calories, carbs and sugar of sweet potatoes, here’s a link with the full nutritional value.
You know what’s even funnier, is I don’t tell my kids that we are eating squash. I just say it’s sweet potato and everyone is happy:) The other benefit of this version of ‘sweet potatoes for diabetics’ is I can buy it already cut either frozen or fresh and it’s ready to cook. That is my kind of veggie!!
For this recipe I bought Mann’s pre-cut butternut squash that look like crinkle fries. I actually have been trying a bunch of the mann products because they are ready to go and healthy veggies.
