Smart carb sweet potato and butternut prep

A delicious healthy recipe commissioned from Sleekgeek Success Story turned Coach,  Sylvia Frank (read more about her here).

Carefully designed to fit in with the Sleekgeek Food List,  Healthy Meal Template, and  Portion Control Guide.


If your smart carbs are ready and waiting in your fridge in half cup portions, all tasty and pre – roasted for lunch or dinner, it minimizes your chances of straying from your plan.
My favourite smart carb prep has to be diced sweet potatoes and butternut with a choice of seasoning.

Sometimes I season with cinnamon and ginger, sometimes with zesty lemon and herbs and sometimes with a sprinkle of brown onion soup powder and chili flakes. It always turns out delicious and satisfying.


  • Simply peel your butternut and your sweet potato.
  • Preheat oven to 180’C.
  • Cut into even sized pieces and spread on a baking tray.
  • Drizzle a Tbsp of coconut oil over the cubed pieces and gently toss them around to get a light and even coating of fat all over them.
  • Season as you like (suggestions above).
  • Bake at 180’C for about half an hour or until a fork slips easily through a cube.
  • Allow to cool down.
  • Portion and save for 3 to 4 days in the fridge.

I even love these cold from the fridge added to my salads!
