A little something for the tummy

29 Oct

I was doing some internet surfing tonight for some food stuff to post when I stumbled on this. I have found a new love for sweet potatoes. I totally love the sweet potato fries at Trader Joes! Anyway this is a great recipe and I wish I could try it but I don’t have an oven so someone please try it and let me know if it is as good as it sounds.

Sweet Potato Pie

(Taken from Catalyst Athletics)

Time: 1 hour

• 12 oz yams
• 12 oz sweet potatoes
• 1/2 cup coconut milk
• 1/4 cup almond butter
• 3 tsp cinnamon
• 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
• 1 1/2 tsp ginger
• 1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
• 1 tsp cardamon
• 1 tsp cloves
• 2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Peel and chop the yams and sweet potatoes into cubes. Boil the yams and potatoes in water until soft; around 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the water, then mash well and add the coconut milk, nut butter, vinegar, and spices. Mix, then add the eggs. Continue mixing until the pie is uniform and smooth.

Grease a 6-inch baking dish with coconut oil. Pour the pie mix into the dish, then bake for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool, then cut into squares and serve. This can be prepared a day ahead of time, and you can serve it cold.

Some options: Sprinkle the top with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Top with pecans.

Zone info: 6 servings at 3.5 carb blocks, 0.3 protein blocks, 8 fat blocks (12 grams)

So here is your next challenge. Its time to set some goals. I think 6 month goals are a good target. For those of you who are over achievers I would like you to set 12 month goals as well. I will check with you by the end of the week to see how you are doing and we can put them up to be accountable. I am focusing on Career, health, and fitness. Bring it!
