Sweet Potato Frittata

Sweet potatoes are a great option for a health eating meal which is lower in glycaemic index (GI).

The benefits of a low GI meal are they release the sugar from the food slower into the blood stream which means you will not get the energy slumps and bumps associated with high GI foods.

Eggs are also high in protein which will assist in the fullness factor.
