Packed with nutrients and flavor, this Crockpot Sweet Potato Soup couldn't be easier!

Guest Post 

Soup is just one of those things that feels natural to make in a slow cooker. And right now, I'm getting ready for my first half-marathon on Sunday {eek!} so I am trying to make sure I get in some good quality carbs and lean protein. 

Sweet potatoes rock for giving you good quality carbohydrates plus lots of nutrients. They are also great for satisfying your sweet tooth {I have a huge sweet tooth}. Yes, this is a savory recipe but eating sweet potatoes helps my sweet tooth for some reason ~ sweet veggies {like sweet potatoes and onions, which are both in this soup} are thought to help quell your sweet tooth.

Plus having a warm bowl of soup is great in this chilly, flaky weather we are having. I added some chicken from my Perfect Roasted Chicken {posting to my blog next week} to add some good protein. You can also add some cooked chickpeas or just eat this as a starter or side dish. Feel free to use thyme in place of the rosemary, but I love the combination of rosemary and sweet potatoes.

This soup is thick and creamy. It's savory with a hint of sweetness. The fiber also makes this really filling, so a little goes a long way.
