Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl

I am always on the hunt for hearty meal-prep recipes and when I make one I love, I like to share.  This recipe was found from of course Pinterest from Fit Foodie Finds and yes it is under an hour to make!  You simply chop up your veggies, season, bake half of them, saute the others and mix together.  Just a few simple ingredients and voila you have your lunch meal-prep done for the week.  This was soooo easy to make that even Miss Millie helped me with it. 🙂
