Ingredients

Sweet Potato Slices:

  • 1 large sweet potato sliced thin, 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste

Bowl:

  • 2 medium avocados peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 4 cups greens boston leaf and romaine
  • 1/4 cup cilantro to mix with bed of greens

Garnishment:

  • 2-4 small limes juiced
  • crushed red pepper flakes optional

Instructions

For the sweet potato slices:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack (or two if needed) overtop. Spray the racks with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Slice the sweet potato into thin slices. Approximately 1/4 inch thick - give or take. Add to a bowl with the olive oil and salt. Toss to thoroughly combine.
  • Place each sweet potato slice onto the racks, evenly spread out.
  • Place into the oven to bake for 15 minutes. Remove, flip, and place back into the oven to bake for an additional 10 minutes. Be sure to check at 5-7 minutes to prevent burning.

Bowl:

  • Combine sweet potatoes with the diced avocado, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower rice, and chicken over a bed of greens. Garnish with crushed red pepper flakes (optional) and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Notes

*If you are looking to reduce the calories and macros on this recipe, you can avoid adding the additional marinade/sauce to the chicken after it is grilled and you can omit the avocado. Avocados are extremely healthy and delicious, but also high in calories.
