Healthy Mexican Sweet Potato

I am so excited share my Mexican Sweet Potato recipe with you! This is definitely one of my all time favorite lunches (its a good dinner too!). It is so full of flavor, colors and awesomeness. It has just enough of every ingredient so you don’t feel like you are missing out while keeping it low carb. Every time I eat this I make a mental note that I must make it again really soon! ? As with all my meals it is also healthy, diabetic friendly and insanely easy to make! Try it and if you do let me know what you think!

Low Carb, Diabetic Friendly Burrito Bowl

As promised from last weeks WIAW post – here is how I made my burrito bowl:

Low Carb, Diabetic Friendly Burrito Bowl.

First I seasoned 1 Lb. of very lean ground beef with: Salt, Pepper, 1tsp garlic powder, 1tsp cumin and 1tsp of chili powder. Then I cooked it until no longer pink.
Next I I put 1oz of Spinach in my bowl as the base & added a serving of the beef.
I topped that with:
1 oz Shredded Mexican Cheese
2 TBSP Cup Trader Joe’s Fire Roasted Corn
1/4 Cup Black Beans
1oz Red Onion
Cilantro + Scallians
Splash of Lime Juice
1oz Avocado (or 2 TBSP Guacamole)
2 TBSP Salsa (I used Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde + Salsa Authentica)
Dab of Sour Cream
My meal total was 450cals/27carbs

I hope you try this. It is so flavorful and tasty. I truly do not miss one single carb from rice, chips or anything else. My husband and I both agree its actually one of our favorite dinners!

Saturday night dinner

Saturday night Brian and I went to Del Fuego for dinner. This is what I ordered:

Appetizer was guacamole (I ate it with veggies, Brian had the chips)

For my entree I ordered the Fuego salad. I didn’t eat all the mango to keep my carbs in check.

I also had 2 glasses of chardonnay. I “guestimated” my dinner was about 25 carbs.
I wasn’t far off because my blood sugar before bed was 111 – yay!
