What to do with leftover Sweet Potato from your Healthy Eating & Weight Loss Coach
I don’t know about you but I always look for recipes that help keep me healthy on the weekends. I get my meal prep done on Thursdays for the week and freeze a lot of food. The weekend though (when I feel lazy) and I look for something quick and easy can be where my commitment drops off. So, I use this recipe for my Friday night Sweet potato and then I have it fresh on Saturday morning and ready for Sunday morning.
I cook for myself so I often have to deal with grocery store packaging and how to deal with leftovers. Until they start packaging food for one person that is gluten-free and paleo friendly I will use recipes like this!
Let me know what you think!
