When it comes to healthy eating, I’m a big supporter of healthy, whole food carb sources, like sweet potatoes! Unless you’re on Keto, carbohydrates can be a terrific source of energy.

Recently, I’ve been having a lot of low carb days. My reason is not because I fear carbs. My reason for low carb is because with a limited number of calories per day, 1200 calories, and a target for my protein (over 100), there isn’t a lot of calories left to split between carbs and proteins! (I have a printable version of my current low carb meal plan here)

But, I’m a big fan of oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and bananas for my main carb sources. This is because they are packed full of fiber, vitamins, and fairly low in calories.

So, I’ve been finding a variety of ways to cook sweet potatoes. So far, I’ve shared

With more coming, I promise!

Making Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

Many people have written explicit details about how to spiralize. Here’s a very short YouTube video if you need a visual on the method of spiralizing.

It looks like from this video, that we might have the same spiralizer. I use the OXO brand spiralizer found on Amazon here.

After you spiralize, there are a few different ways to cook the sweet potato noodles. My favorite method though is roasting them. Not only is it quick, but the sweet potato noodles don’t get too mushy.

So, I spray the noodles with some cooking spray and salt. Then, I bake them at 425 for about 10-15 minutes. Just enough time to get soft, and cooked through. This is considerably faster than roasting chunks of sweet potatoes, which I love!
