We’re big lovers of the humble sweet potato here at Hip & Healthy. Not only is it packed with slow-releasing carbs, but it’s also a great source of vitamins, fibre & antioxidants that perform a little bit of magic inside our bodies – from supporting gut health to regulating blood pressure.
Whether you’re into quick fixes that fuel you on the go or love lengthy sessions in the kitchen, Fullgreen’s Sweet Potato Vegi Rice is a versatile, low GI, gluten-free, vegan option that’s packed with the good stuff. Pop a pouch in your gym bag, add it to a salad at work or use it for a Sunday meal planning session. Heating up in just 2 minutes, it’s a quick, tasty and easy way to get a nutritional hit. A little bit of brilliance for those on a time-crunch.
We’re constantly experimenting with Sweet Potato in the Hip & Healthy kitchen so were super excited when Fullgreen asked us to join them in their mission to find (and judge!) three new innovative sweet potato dishes using their Sweet Potato Vegi Rice.
The competition was fierce. Fitness, food and lifestyle Instagrammers submitted a plethora of sweet potato delights – from tortilla salad wraps and stuffed peppers to muffins, fudgy Ferrero muffins and paella. Is your mouth watering yet? If not, trust us it will be soon…
Here are our three winning dishes from Vicky at @cleanleanbakes, Nina at @tastethefitlife and Gem at @gemtakesfoodpics. Note them down, grab your Fullgreen Sweet Potato Vegi Rice (you’ll find it in the rice aisle at most major supermarkets) and get busy in the kitchen – your health and your taste buds will thank you for it.
