Benefits of Sweet Potatoes.

Sweet potatoes aren’t just tasty; they’re also packed with nutritional goodness!

Here are some of the key benefits:

  1. Rich in Nutrients: Sweet potatoes contain vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and fibre, essential for overall health.
  2. They are high in Antioxidants. They contain various antioxidants, such as beta-carotene, which can help protect your body from oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
  3. Promote Gut Health: Sweet potatoes’ fibre content supports digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements and feeding beneficial gut bacteria.
  4. Regulate Blood Sugar: Despite their sweet taste, sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic index than regular potatoes, meaning they are less likely to cause spikes in blood sugar levels.
  5. Boost Immunity: Sweet potatoes contain an abundance of vitamins and antioxidants, which can help strengthen the immune system and keep you better protected against infections and illnesses.
  6. Support Eye Health: The beta-carotene in sweet potatoes is converted to vitamin A in the body, which is crucial for maintaining good vision and eye health.
  7. Heart-Friendly: Sweet potatoes contain potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.
  8. Versatile and Delicious: Sweet potatoes are incredibly versatile and can be incorporated into various dishes, from savoury to sweet, making it easy to enjoy their health benefits in your everyday meals.

This easy and delicious Sweet Potato, Pepper and Chicken Traybake is full of flavour, it is all cooked in one tray so less cleaning to deal with, and pretty healthy because it is filled with good vegetables! This one is a must try!


  • 2 medium size sweet potatoes cut into 1" cubes (skin on)
  • 3 bell peppers chopped into medium-sized pieces – (1 yellow, 1 orange, and 1 red)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 8 small sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 skinless chicken breasts


    1. Marinate chicken the night before, or a few hours before cooking. Place 1 tbs of olive oil, and 2 tsps of smoked paprika, salt and pepper to taste in a glass container, add the chicken to the bowl and coat them well. Cover and let it sit in the fridge.
    2. Preheat your oven to 425F.
    3. Place sweet potatoes and peppers in your roasting sheet pan. Makes ure your pan is big enough to allow al v vegetables to cook in a single layer with a bit of space in between.
    4. Drizzle vegetables with 2 tsps of olive oil, add smoke paprika and thyme springs, mix well to coat all vegetables with seasoning.
    5. Place in the oven and roast for 10 minutes.
    6. After the 10 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, flip the vegetables with a spatula, and place the chicken breast on the sheet, in between the vetables, making sure the chicken touches the pan (don't place them on top of the vegetables). I had too many vegetables so I moved half to a separate tray after adding the chicken.
    7. Place the pan back in the oven and roast for another 20 minutes, or until your chicken is fully cooked. I use a meat thermometer to make sure it has cooked properly.
    8. Serve hot, with a green side salad. I love kale salad with cranberry and sesame seeds.
    9. ENJOY!
