If you like healthier snacks or side dishes, this Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Herbs de Provence is perfect for you. Super quick and easy.
If you’re anything like me, you like fries, A LOT :), and I’m happy to meet you, but fries, and potatoes in particular bloat us very much so we have to find ways to eat our favorite foods without feeling like a pregnant lady all the time.
Rarely I make a batch of fries, and most of the times, I bake potatoes or sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes bloat me as well, but less. I have this problem with bloating because I have an ulcer in my stomach, so I have to be careful what I eat because I’ll feel sick later.
Sweet potatoes are really good and healthier than normal potatoes, but I still eat normal potatoes, because they’re really good too.
If you have a problem with bloating, you should avoid or eat rarely and in small quantities these fruits and vegetables:
- cabbage and brussels sprouts
- bell pepper
These are some of the foods that help you with bloating:
- green juices
- flax seeds
It doesn’t mean that I don’t eat those foods, but I try to eat them rarely and in small portions because I like them all.
Now for the recipe. If you like sweet potatoes, you will love this simple recipe.
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 tablespoon of oil of your choice (I used grapeseed oil)
- salt and pepper
- Provence herbs as much as you like
It’s so very easy to make these roasted sweet potatoes. Peel, wash and slice them. Arrange every slice into a big tray in a single layer, drizzle oil and season with salt, pepper, and the herbs. Bake the potatoes at 200*C for 25 minutes, or until golden and delicious. 🙂
