Monday Night Football Recipe Your Whole Team Will Love

Food: Nutrition

By: // September 16, 2015

Monday nights in the fall are often filled with football, cool weather and food. However, football fare isn’t typically the healthiest which is why the team at GHU has come up with a delicious, low-calorie recipe both meatless and dairy free to give your Monday night a healthy boost. Our super cozy roasted sweet potato soup recipe is packed with flavor and nutrients, plus it can easily be made a day ahead. Score big by serving it in bread bowls for a fun presentation and delish dipping! And don’t worry, the guys will love it too!

This soup is creamy and nutty thanks to Silk’s Unsweetened Almond Milk. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how much I love almond milk. It is so decadent, plus it’s dairy free which makes it an easy choice for guests with intolerances (skip the bread bowl and it’s gluten free too!).

Adopting a more plant-based diet is always beneficial which is why we’re happy to join in on #meatlessmondaynight with Silk and sideline meat during Monday Night Football games. Plant-based food is full of nutrients and is exactly what your body needs to stay healthy and active. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber, a rich source of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, loaded with vitamin A, potassium and calcium—oh, and they taste SO good.
