Hi everyone,

Hope your Wednesday is going well!

I’ve had a busy day, but did have a chance to get home for lunch. A quick rummage in the fridge and I decided to make this warm baked sweet potato noodle dish with a cool, creamy avocado sauce šŸ™‚

Sweet potatoes are such an amazingly versatile food, and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. These noodles are yet another great way to enjoy them, and remind me a little bit of sweet potato fries but without the extra grease! I didn’t even use coconut oil on these as I’ve found previously that it can make them a little soggy.

Sweet potatoes are a super source of complex carbs to power you through a busy day and an active lifestyle, plus they contain plenty of fibre to keep your digestive system healthy.

Their brilliant orange colour comes from their beta-carotene content, and this helps to brighten your complexion and support healthy eyesight.

Avocados feature in my diet frequently, as they’re a tasty way to maintain smooth, soft skin because they’re brimming with essential fatty acids, plus amino acids, potassium and iron. Avocados are also easy to digest and best enjoyed raw to avail of their living enzymes. Your body runs on living enzymes as the catalyst for every biochemical reaction, and the more raw fruit and veggies you eat, the better health and beauty results you’ll get. It’s that simple!

I just whizzed up the ripe avo with lemon juice, garlic, seasoning, smoked paprika and a dash of unsweetened almond milk for a really tasty and smooth sauce, which goes so well with the sweet potato! Some cherry tomatoes, coriander and sesame seeds finished off the dish.
