How do you like your sweet potatoes? Baked fries? Baked whole? Roasted?
I learned (by total accident) that if I baked my sweet potatoes for about 45 minutes to an hour (when they start oozing the bubbliness out the slit at the top LOL) then cut a slit at the top and put back in for another 45 minutes or so… then turn the oven off but leave them in there a bit longer while the oven cools, that they’re soooo delightfully sweet on their own, I don’t miss the brown sugar or sweetener. They really are so yummy.
The cook time may seem like too long to wait, but since I cooked them at the beginning of the week and just keep them in my fridge to grab and eat whenever I want throughout my week, they’re completely convenient for a mid morning meal before workouts or lunch side dish with my protein of choice.
Then, also, I saw a tip to try coconut oil on my sweet potatoes, so I did. And what?! So good with the cinnamon. Really.
Had a sweet potato today with chicken for 1 yellow and 1 red before my 21dfX workout!
Give it a try and taste the sweetness for yourself and comment below how you liked it!
