I have a food in my arsenal that will get me from hungry to satisfied in only 5 minutes. It is nutritious and tasty. It is the ugly and under-rated sweet potato. This one food has produced more satisfaction than almost any other food that I eat (healthy food that is HAHA ).
There are many ways that you can cook it, but most people think of it as a holiday for only. Oh the wonderful sweet potato. It is so much more than a holiday dish. I microwave them for 5 minutes, slice ’em up, spray some stuff on it that is so good that I can’t believe it’s not butter, add some salt and pepper, and I am good to go. Filling, sweetish, carby, lovely. It is only 3-4 points on WW too. I also bake them with a very thin coating of olive oil (my favorite, but more time consuming method). This renders the potato into a soft and delicate delight. Another way I do it is the old microwave method but then I slice it long ways and thin. Then I fry the slices in a pan with spray or olive oil and it turns into a fry of sorts. Great change on the texture front. Here are some other recipes to try out on the this run4change staple food:
I will forever have a relationship with the sweet potato. You should give it a shot too maybe. Have you eaten them much? What do you think about them? If you do try ’em, let me know what you think.
