healthy sweet potato recipes preparing for bbq

Sweet potatoes have been playing second fiddle to white potatoes for far too long. This colorful, starchy veggie can do so much more than be a side dish for your Thanksgiving feast. In fact, sweet potatoes can pretty much do everything that their white potato cousins can do — and more. Sure, you can bake them, mash them, fry them, and roast them, just like white potatoes, but that’s just the start. 

Sweet potatoes go with just about anything, so if you’re wondering what’s good to eat with sweet potatoes, the choices are pretty limitless. From chicken to salmon, sautéed veggies to salads, everything is better with sweet potatoes.

5 simple ways to make veggie fajitas even tastier
how to make veggie fajitas grilled portobello  asparagus bell peppers green beans poblano mushroom tacos with jalapeno cilant

Tacos, burritos, and quesadillas are all popular Mexican foods and ones we enjoy eating every chance we get, but if you’re looking to add another to your repertoire, you may want to try fajitas. Sizzling and flavor-rich, fajitas are typically made with strips of grilled meat (most often skirt steak), peppers, and onions, served on a flour or corn tortilla.

If, however, you are cutting back on your meat, or simply looking for a healthier, lower-calorie option, vegetarian fajitas can be every bit as tasty, but a whole lot healthier than their beefy cousins. How many calories are in a vegetarian fajita? That will depend on how you prepare your veggies, the amount of oil used in the preparation, and which veggies you choose. For example, vegetable fajitas topped with slices of avocado will have more calories than ones made with a mix of veggies minus the avocado topping. Calorie counts can vary from around 250 per serving to 450 calories or more. But, whatever preparation method you use, vegetable fajitas are so good!
