After a workout, I like to eat something that is high in protein to feed my muscles but I also like to incorporate some type of complex carb as well. This was perfect for that AND it tastes delicious. It kind of reminds me a little of fall because of the cinnamon taste. But of course, my happy fall mood was ruined when I walked outside to 98 degree weather. But that discussion is for another day…
This quick and easy dish is perfect for lunch, as a high protein side, or for a simple pick me up post workout snack.
- 1 Sweet potato
- 1/2 Cup cottage cheese
- 1 tsp. Ground cinnamon
- 1/2 Tbsp. honey
Directions:Cook your sweet potato in the microwave or oven until soft. Cut open.
Top with cottage cheese.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey.
Optional: You can also sprinkle some walnuts on top for a healthy and satisfying crunch!
