Sauteed Sweet Potatoes

Since my diagnosis of Hashimoto’s December 2018 our food choices have drastically changed.  Following and Autoimmune Protocol Paleo diet right now does not mean I have to give up great flavors or food.  What it does mean is I have to change the way I think about food and my cravings.

I am a snacker.  A closet food addict.  Actually if I am gonna be totally transparent with you, I am a fast food junk food addict.  I have been trying to break the habit for years and have had much mom guilt over it.

Afternoon snacks have been the hardest adjustment for me.  With a bit of creativity I am slowly creating snacks I love and that are keeping me full and satisfied.

The recipe down below has a bit of sweet and spicy and sets just perfect on my taste buds.
