At just under 1,000 calories, this is a great dinner meal. A big hit of protein, a healthy portion of fibre and resistant starch in the veggies, sweet potatoes are generally so versatile, healthy and tasty. If you’re a fan of hummus and like volume, this is a winner! Of course, you can pick a smaller sweet potato or just have one breast of chicken if you have a smaller appetite or want to knock off about 300 calories.
- Sweet Potato – 385g (+ 10g butter)
- Hummus – 3 tablespoons (or as much as you fancy)
- Chicken Breast – 2x or 300g (+ teaspoon of coconut oil + spice of choice)
- Leek – 100g
- Tenderstem Broccoli – 22g / ~6 sprigs
- Sweet & smoky shredded Beetroot – 40g
Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato. Leeks, Beetroot and Broccoli are great prebiotics, meaning they are food for the good bacteria in your gut, plus because of the fibre content they help with good bowel movement, feeling full and not all their calories are absorbed. Chicken is a great lean source of protein, and hummus is just outright delicious!
