Mexican Sweet Potato Boats Topped with Feta


So many women I speak to tell me they feel guilty for eating cheese. But you should never feel guilty for eating cheese (or any other food for that matter). Cheese is a food I eat almost every day for extra calcium, protein, and flavour. 

It helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer and makes healthy eating more enjoyable. Add cheese to your salads, sandwiches, breakfasts or to baked sweet potatoes! 

These healthy sweet potato boats are stuffed with fibre-rich beans, corn and topped with the goodness of feta cheese. Enjoy this easy-to-make meal for meat-free Monday or anytime you want to feel good.
