Prep Notes

Sweet potatoes may taste sweeter than normal potatoes but they actually have a lower glycemic index as they are more dense in fiber. They therefore should keep you fuller for longer and they also have more nutrients than normal potatoes. Red kidney beans are a great source of protein, folate, dietary fibre, potassium, iron & magnesium! And avocados are a great source of healthy fat!
