Sweet potatoes nourish the liver, especially when eaten for breakfast (or before 10am — the prime time for nourishing the liver). If you want to get ahead, cook the night before or increase the quantities so to make enough for the week ahead.
Breakfast Sweet Potato
1 sweet potato
1 Tbsp sprouted almond butter
1⁄2 tsp ghee
1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Wash and clean sweet potato. Use a fork to poke several holes in the potato. Place potato on the prepared baking sheet and bake in oven for 40 to 45 minutes, until tender. To serve, transfer potato to plate, cut in half and top with almond butter, ghee and cinnamon.
Tip: A baked sweet potato will keep for up to 5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To reheat, bake in oven (preheated to 350°F) for 10 minutes or cook in the microwave for 2 minutes.
