Sweet potato nachos


I really love nachos. Serve up with a big portion of zucchini frites it is a total winner. In this month’s “Lose It” Magazine, Sally-Anne Creed was asked about beetroot, sweet potato and butternut with banting and she had this to say “You can eat these if you’re not carrying a lot of extra weight. If you’re trying to lose weight, it’s better to steer clear. Vegetables like these are nutritious, but they’re much higher in carbs than other veggies, so we suggest you have them now and again for their nutritional value and great taste, and for variety. However, don’t include them all in one meal. For example, have half a sweet potato, but don’t have it with beetroot and butternut. If you’re diabetic, however, it’s best to stay away from the higher carb vegetables like beetroot, sweet potato and butternut.” Get the magazine here https://www.mysubs.co.za/magazine/lose-it-the-lchf-way
