Make it a Full Plate Meal: Serve your stuffed sweet potato with a side salad. You still have room for a 25% item. I'd pick a fruit popsicle. Mango sounds fantastic. (Or better yet, eat the fruit itself or make your own fruit popsicle and keep this entire meal 100% filled with water-fiber foods).
75%water-fiber – foods sweet potato, red onion, bell pepper, corn, quinoa, black beans, avocado, cilantro, salad greens, fruit
25% – foods olive oil/dressing, popsicle
