    LET’S HASSELBACK SOME POTATOES YALL

    LET’S HASSELBACK SOME POTATOES YALL 1024 1024 Delphine Remy | Holistic Nutrition & Eating Psychology Coach

    Hasselback — not Hasselhoff — don’t get too excited. Hasselback ’ing is totally a thing and if you haven’t hasselback ’ed something. This is your chance! Hasselback ‘ing is all over Instagram and I was so excited when my friend @the_clumsy_vegan inspired me to try this recipe with sweet potatoes.

    Note: You can pretty much hasselback anything — any type of potato, squash, eggplant, etc.

    I choose to hasselback my sweet potatoes since sweet potatoes are so high in vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin D. Vitamin B6 helps reduce homocysteine, which is linked to degenerative diseases such as heartaches. Vitamin C as we’ve been covering all month is super important in building the immune system and fighting against cold and flu viruses, and vitamin D helps ward off winter blues aka SAD (seasonal affective disorder). Vitamin D helps boost energy levels and helps build healthy bones, teeth and supports the thyroid gland.

    Sweet potatoes are wonderfully versatile and can be roasted, pureed, steamed, baked or grilled. I enjoy grilling them with onions or red peppers as an amazing wrap ingredient. They can also be added to smoothies and baked goods! YUM
