Easy Roasted Sweet Potato Bites

Hi Beauty!

 
Let's talk Sweet Potatoes, they are so in for your 2019 BOD goals!
 
Looking for a yummy, nutritious side dish for everything from steak to grilled chicken to rice bowls to salads? Load up your grocery cart with sweet potatoes, because you’ll be making these easy Roasted Sweet Potato Bites often. 
Sweet potatoes are the saving grace of anyone who knows they need to add more vegetables to their diet but is over steamed broccoli or cucumbers.
Their natural sweetness lends itself to a variety of dishes, but it’s not all about great taste and a pop of color on your plate: Sweet potatoes contain a ton of beta-carotene, which converts to Vitamin A to helps ward off free radicals that can cause chronic diseases. It helps support your immune system, reduce inflammation, promote healthy skin, and maintain healthy vision.
Now, we’ll level with you: Sweet potatoes wouldn’t be sweet without a little natural sugar (6g per 1 cup, raw/uncooked). This is nothing to worry about! Sweet potatoes are actually considered low on the glycemic index compared to regular white potatoes, so you break down their sugars in your blood at a slower pace, preventing a sharp spike in your blood sugar that can leave you lethargic and your workouts lacking.

All of that from a tasty little bite?
We know your taste buds and BikiniBOD are begging for it, so give this recipe a try:
