I picked up a sweet potato on my grocery shopping trip yesterday and spent some time last night looking for a recipe online. I came across this great recipe for Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apples.
I didn’t follow the recipe exactly and the dish still turned out great:
1 large sweet potato (2lbs) cubed
2 gala apples cubed
1 cup almonds
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
I tossed the cubed sweet potato, apples and almonds in the coconut oil and cinnamon until thoroughly coated. Placed the mixture in a glass dish, covered with foil and baked at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
I brought some to work today and it was the perfect way to satisfy that sweet craving.
So following my post yesterday about wanting to stay more focused and to be more motivated, I have to admit that on my way to work this morning, I started thinking about the least harmful treat that I could have. I can’t lie, I started thinking about hashbrowns and tried convincing myself that having them for breakfast wouldn’t be that bad. I stayed focus though and I stayed on track with my healthy eating.
Tonight’s goal is to be in bed before 9:30pm. I want my alarm to go off tomorrow morning and I want to feel energized and ready to face the day.
