Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Sweet Potatoes
Here's another one pot meal to make in your crockpot with warm enchilada flavors. The fiber in the sweet potatoes along with the protein form the chicken slow down the digestion of the starch in the sweet potatoes so that you don't see a spike in your blood glucose. Make sure to pair with a non-starchy veggie like a salad! This is a great recipe for gut health with multiple fiber sources, especially if you keep the skin on the sweet potatoes as they are a great source of fiber at 6g in one cup, and contain the pre-biotic fiber called Oligosaccharides. And then using the Greek yogurt instead of sour cream you get a great dose of probiotics.

Long-term, the good bacteria will improve your insulin sensitivity and calorie control!
1 pot Italian chicken skillet

The zucchini is a great source of prebiotic fiber (the stuff that feeds your good bacteria) called polydextrol, while the onion and garlic contain prebiotic fiber called inulin. The plain yogurt in this recipe adds creaminess and beneficial bacteria called probiotics.
