Sweet potatoes are my favourite! They are so delicious and hearty and loaded with micro nutrients.I make these Mexican style stuffed sweet potato with beans when I am not doing Whole30. For Whole30, I am stuffing them with a spicy pumpkin seed mix. These beauties topped with a home made guacamole will keep you full for hours.

Pumpkin seeds are loaded with healthy fats, manganese, iron, magnesium and zinc. 1 cup of raw, shelled pumpkin seeds contain a whooping 45g of protein and a lot of good fats. Pumpkin seeds make a great plant-based substitute that is rich in fats, proteins and micro nutrients.
