Just because you have decided to eat healthy and clean, and are conscious about what you put on your plate, it does not mean you have to make your taste buds suffer. Punishing yourself is not the ideal way of living a healthy lifestyle. If anything, you have to make the process more enjoyable for your mind and body, and have fun while being on the health track.

With this thought, fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala recently shared a video of a recipe, which she said is ideal for a Sunday binge. But we think you can have it any day, especially if you feel like snacking during the monsoon season.

“Chatpata Sweet Potato for Sunday Binge Anyone? 😋 Feel like snacking and not sure if you should binge on potato chips or fries🍟 Guilt no more 🙃 Here’s a super quick and super healthy sweet potato snack which you can enjoy on guilt free,” she wrote in the caption.

Here is the full recipe.
