I'm always looking for recipes my husband will eat. He has been eating the "caveman" diet, or whatever you want to call it, for years now and he has strange eating habits. They are very healthy, but he won't eat so many things, most carbs included, so I have to find recipes he will eat and for some reason he will eat sweet potatoes, so I have a few recipes for them.
