Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points
Perhaps the best part of this sweet potato has for Weight Watchers Freestyle is the Smart Points…just 3 points per serving! I’ll breakdown my calculations below so you can see how I came to that calculation.
This is how I count this recipe for my program. I use the Weight Watchers online program to build my recipes and it automatically calculates the points per serving based on the Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points formula.
As always, I encourage you to calculate your recipes based on the exact ingredients that you use to recreate this recipe at home. We all have to do what works for us and at the end of the day we are all responsible for our own results!
3 Cups of Sweet Potatoes – 10 Points
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil – 8 Points
If you are looking for ways to reduce the points you can obviously reduce that count by cutting back on the oil. By reducing the amount of oil you can cut the points back by almost half.
How to Make Healthy Shredded Sweet Potato Hash:
Clean, peel, and shred sweet potatoes. You can shred sweet potatoes easily with a food processor, it’s one of my favorite kitchen hacks. You can also use a box grater.
If the potatoes seem too wet you can remove excess water by laying the shredded potatoes out on paper towels for a few minutes before you start cooking them!
Chop the onion into small chunks. If you like them smaller you can easily just shred them with the food processor or box grater!
Mix the potatoes, onion, and seasoning in a large bowl or plastic bag and mix well. This is a great way to get the seasoning onto all the small bits and bites!
Heat 2-3 tbsp coconut oil or olive oil in a large skillet, stir to combine. I like using cast iron pans to make these sweet potatoes. It gives them a nice little crispiness around the edges.
Add grated sweet potatoes mix and cook over med to med-low heat. Flip occasionally to lightly brown on all sides to finish this sweet potato hash recipe.
Depending on heat, the type of pan you use, etc. the potatoes will take approximately 20 to 25 minutes to cook.
Are sweet potatoes good for inflammation?
Yes, sweet potatoes are loaded with great vitamins and minerals. Vitamin C and E along with beta carotene and carotenoids alpha help to reduce inflammation throughout the body.
If you have issues related to inflammation like allergies, asthma, IBD, Coeliac, or other autoimmune diseases, you could benefit from an anti-inflammation diet. In that case, you’re really in luck because these shredded sweet potato has browns are anti-inflammatory!
