Sweet Potato-Peanut Butter Breakfast To Help Control Blood Sugar Level

This sweet potato-peanut butter breakfast is definitely one of my favorite breakfasts ever! It contains all nutrients a high quality breakfast should contain, controls my blood sugar level, keeping me satisfied for a long time and is above all delicious!

Unfortunately most people exclude potatoes and nut butters from their diet. Having sweet potato and peanut butter for breakfast helps to control the blood sugar  level throughout (most of) the day though. This staves off that feeling of hunger, which helps to control weight and prevent potential weight gain. This sweet potato-nut butter breakfast is therefore a good choice to manage weight. Last but not least: sweet potato & nut butter is a perfect pre- or post-workout meal as well.
 
Sweet potato health benefits 
Sweet potatoes are one of the most versatile and healthy vegetables available! Their benefits include a.o. the following:

– boost immunity;
– chock-full of disease preventing and cancer fighting benefits;
– prevent sugar cravings and control appetite;
– help stabilize blood glucose  levels, so a good option for diabetic;s
– contain twice the fibers of normal potatoes;
– high in vitamin B6, which helps to prevent heart attacks;
– good for skin and hair; the combination of beta-carotene, vitamin E and C makes them one heck of a beauty food!
 
Organic granola and peanut butter
Besides peanut butter, this sweet potato-peanut butter recipe contains granola. If you want to be sure that there are no processed sugars in your peanut butter and granola, choose organic. These are sugar free or contain only natural sugars.
