Last night I had this savory stuffed sweet potatoes recipe from Pure Foods on the brain. (pssst… it’s on Martha’s website )
However, I apparently don’t know what a sweet potato looks like. I popped it in the oven for 50 mins, let it cool, and then when I cut it open, my doubts were confirmed as I realized the cold hard truth and at that moment I knew it could not be a sweet potato. After extensive googling, I figured out it was a sweet yam. Regardless, it was still good
I subbed spinach for kale, mushrooms & some pepper jack cheese for tofu, and thyme for rosemary. Oh, and chives for onions if that even counts.
After 50 looooonnnnggg minutes, I was able to take it out of the oven, cut off the top, scoop out the insides, and stuff it.
I honestly don’t know the nutritional differences between sweet potatoes and sweet yam’s. (Couldn’t find it!!) But the sweet yam was pretty darn good – just entirely different than a sweet potato. I love eating my dinner in a little pocket.
Today’s lunch was easy because its Bagel Wednesday! At work they have bagels for us every week on the lovely hump day. I hated cream cheese prior to working here so when I decided to try the chive/veggie it was a huge deal and I’ve never looked back. I’m addicted. Go big or go home on bagel day! I snagged my favorite bagel today – whole wheat everything.
Therefore, my own personal Wednesday tradition is salad for lunch. An easy pack! I made it this morning after my run.
