Mashed Sweet Potato & Pumpkin

HELLO easy fall/thanksgiving inspired side dish with ALL the micronutrients.

Basically we’re blending sweet potato & pumpkin together.

If you’re skeptical of adding pumpkin to the mix… you can’t taste it!

And pumpkin is a low calorie high volume food which will allow you to eat a bigger portion of this mashed sweet potato mixture if you’re dieting on lower macros.

If you split this into 4 massive servings here is the nutrition info:

My favorite way to pair this is with some pulled pork tenderloin and some veggies:

You can find the recipe for the pulled pork here.

You can also add a scoop of protein powder or two to this recipe if you choose. It’s not mandatory, but if you have a hard time hitting your protein goal this would be a handy way to increase it!

I think any kind of cinnamon flavored protein would be perfect here–I always end up using PE Science these days, especially now that I *finally* (after months and months of begging) have a discount code for them.

If you’d like to buy some PE Science snickerdoodle protein powder you can now use code “emyogifit” at checkout to save some $$ and help support me ❤️
