FODMAP-Friendly Veggie Sweet Potato Skins

FODMAP-Friendly Veggie Sweet Potato Skins

This sweet dish revolutionizes a classic sports game-watching favorite. Traditional potato skin recipes often get made with an abundance of sour cream, full-fat cheese, and bacon—ultimately lacking nutritional balance. So, this healthy rendition prioritizes colorful veggies and plant-based proteins, making it a game-day dish worth enjoying on the regular. Not to mention, it contains IBS-friendly ingredients that help you stay focused on the score rather than unwanted symptoms. Enjoy it as a nutrient-packed side dish or double-up and make it the star of the show. Embrace the spud-life by baking extra to enjoy throughout the week. Or use the leftover filling as a fiber-filled side dish to any healthful entrée. It’s game time, and the skins are up!
