Sweet potato is well known as a source of complex carbohydrates, carotenoids, and fiber that, along with a serving of protein and papaya seeds for an extra enzyme boost, will put your digestive system in a great mood and condition! We’ll boil the sweet potato since boiling decreases the glycemic index. GI boiled is 46 while the same potato baked is 94. A lower G.I means lower impact on your blood sugar.
These tiny papaya seeds possess so many benefits that it is really worth it to try adding them to your diet on a daily basis. It can be added to your daily green smoothie or protein drink, or dried and ground and used it in place of black pepper.
Sweet Potato Sunwarrior Protein with an enzyme boost
- ¼ cup sweet potato boiled
- 1 scoop Sunwarrior protein of your choice
- About ½ tsp of papaya seeds
- ½ cup of water & ice cubes optional
Blend all together until nice and smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
*Tip: Boil a large amount of sweet potatoes peeled, portioned in 60gr bags and keep them frozen
* Tip: once you cut the papaya in half scoop out the seeds rinse them and portion in equal amounts on each sweet potato bag ready to put in the freezer, it can also be dehydrated in very low setting overnight or air dry and keep them in the fridge or ground them up.
