Paleo Sweet Potato Recipe Roundup



If you’ve been contemplating going Paleo or trying a round of Whole30® ,  you’ve probably come to realize how integral sweet potatoes are in clean eating. I will admit that I have gotten bored with my usual sweet potato recipes a time or two but I’m not going to let that happen again! I’ve rounded up my 12 favorite sweet potato recipes featured them below.

Each of these are Paleo compliant but a few are not Whole30® approved so make sure that you are following all those Rules and Recommendations before recreating any of these recipes.

I love each of these recipes for different reasons but I mostly love how versatile our main ingredient is. Sweet potatoes can be sweet, savory, Asian inspired, crunchy, melty, and always downright delicious. Sweet potatoes boast a variety of health benefits for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, being helpful in regulating blood sugar, and containing impressive amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, B6, Biotin, and fiber….so make these recipes and thank yourself for such a smart decision later!
