Loaded Sweet Potato (and ideas for variations)
Using a complex, low-glycemic starchy carb like sweet potato as a base, add whatever protein, fat, and veggies you want to make this a fun and interesting variation on your weekly meal prep. Looking for carbs around your workout? This is a great option. Eat half of this meal 1 hour before your workout. Eat the second half after your workout, especially if you are doing strength training. (Starchy carbs are optional.) Here’s my general loaded sweet potato template:
– 1 sweet potato
– 1 palm protein like Chris’s Perfect Chicken or Lamb Burgers
– 1-2 fists veggies like kale, spinach, or power greens
– 1-2 thumbs fat like coconut oil, Kerrygold butter, Kale Pesto, or extra virgin olive oil
– bonus herbs or veggie toppings like cilantro or chopped scallions (the green part) Below are the ingredients to the pictured sweet potato.
