A longtime favorite
I can’t help but share another sweet potato recipe. It’s great winter food, you know? Sliced into medallions, eaten cold with a green salad or in sweet potato salad, or pureed in a creamy soup or a chunky stew. I like sweet potatoes any which way, and today I have a paleo version of baked sweet potato.
After a hard workout or a long run, I like to eat higher carb breakfasts such as this baked sweet potato or perfect overnight oatmeal. On weight lifting days or no workout days, I stick with higher protein breakfasts and lower carbs. All food finds a place in my diet, given the right circumstances.
Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of healthy carbs. Unlike highly processed foods or sugary pastries, sweet potatoes hit the sweet spot without going overboard. Not to say there is never a time or place to indulge, of course.
