The latest post on my recipe blog: The Purple Almond Wellness Kitchen
In honor of my post yesterday on the Okinawa Diet, I am posting one of my recipes, Purple Sweet Potato Nachos. Sweet potatoes, particularly the purple variety, are a large part of the Okinawa style of eating. Sweet potatoes are super healthy, packed with fiber and a host of vitamins and minerals. For more information on the health benefits of these little gems, see this article by Dr. Axe.
In this recipe, I used ground bison for the meat. However, any ground meat would work. Just make sure it’s grass fed or pasture raised. To truly honor the Okinawa way of eating, however, would eliminate the sour cream and cheese all together. You could use vegan options, however, Okinawan people typically don’t eat processed foods. You could also swap out the ground meat for your favorite beans. All other steps would remain the same. Enjoy!
