I try not to choose too many recipes that require BBQ sauce because I know when I first started meal prepping, the last thing I wanted to do was buy expensive paleo BBQ sauce or make my own paleo BBQ sauce. However, after meal prepping for four years now and prioritizing nutrition even more now then I did my first year, I look forward to buying the paleo BBQ sauce knowing it will save me time and make for an easier meal prep. If you are someone just starting out and have no desire to buy paleo BBQ sauce or make your own, I recommend just finding a BBQ sauce with the best ingredients possible. That means get in the habit of checking the ingredient label on food products and knowing what you are putting into your body! For those who don't mind purchasing paleo BBQ sauces, my go-to options are Tessemae's BBQ sauce or Steve's PaleoChef Peach BBQ, which are both sold at the Whole Foods near me. Anyways, about this BBQ Chicken & Roasted Sweet Potato Bowl. This recipe only serves 3 and did not have enough sweet potatoes for my need, so I basically doubled the main ingredients to have enough food for six meals. I also clearly used a lot less BBQ sauce on the chicken, so you can always adjust that to your liking. To shred chicken I always throw it in the food mixer instead of forking it apart, which is so much easier and also why my shredded chicken looks the way it does. This was just a simple well-rounded meal prep recipe that was easy to throw together and still tasted delicious! Definitely a recipe worth saving for a last minute meal prep idea or for when you can't decide on what to make for the week.
