sweet potato

Food prep practice!

I have been over-worked lately! I will be off the next few days so I have so many things to share with you guys. First off , I have not started training yet. Geez, I really dislike putting excuses up.

                                                                                                                            I AGREE! I gotta do this!!

But I have been flying 6 days straight 1 off and just haven’t had any energy to workout. On the few days I’ve had off I just want to relax. So yeah, maybe I do need to put more effort and just hit the gym even if I fall asleep on the machines.

I was able to at least prepare competition prep food for 4 days away. I took a few pics of what I cooked and how I put it all in my lunch bag.

So it went well. It was like a little practice test for me. I think I will be okay as long as i plan ahead. Cooking and organizing the food for a weeks worth will definitely make it so much easier.

News to share: The BF and I will be moving into a new place. I’m super excited! I will be posting pics of the new place (needs lots of work). But It will be our new project. Looking forward to sharing the improvements as we go along. Once my kitchen comes together I will be doing videos of healthy recipes and competition food prep. Can’t wait!!

ANYTHING YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT LATELY?

Roasted sweet potatoes

INGREDIENTS:

6-8 medium sized sweet potatoes

1 red pepper, sliced

1 small onion sliced

1 tbsp. brown sugar ( I did’nt have any this time)

1 tsp. salt

1 tbsp. roasted red pepper flakes and garlic

2 oz. butter unsalted

2 tbsp. olive oil,

2 tbsp thyme

1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon

Recipe: Peel and slice the sweet potatoes to approximately 1/3-inch thick slices. Put them in a mixing bowl and toss them with the rest of the ingredients until they are evenly seasoned.

Arrange the sweet potatoes on a baking tray over parchment paper and bake them in a preheated oven at 375 F for about 25 minutes or until they are soft to touch but not mushy.

Enjoy with sautee ground turkey and salad.
