Delicious Alternatives To Mash Potato 🍴

Potatoes have nutritious components, such as B vitamins, vitamin C, and some excellent minerals. But if weight loss is your goal all those good things can’t save them from being a starch bomb!
As soon as starch enzymes hit your mouth, the starches begin the digestion process and break down to sugar. As soon as the starch breaks down to sugar, it becomes a refined simple carb and those refined simple carbs are the ones that increase abdominal fat and promote weight gain. So thats why potatoes are avoided on
Sweet potatoes are much better option, they are naturally sweet-tasting their natural sugars are slowly released into the bloodstream, helping to ensure a balanced and regular source of energy, without the blood sugar spikes linked to fatigue and weight gain.
Some of my other favourites alternatives for mash potato are:
Chick pea mash

1 400g organic chickpeas drained
2 garlic cloves crushed

Gently fry garlic for 1 minute then add chickpeas and unsweetened almond milk, heat though for a couple of minutes
