How to Microwave a Sweet Potato
A healthy, low calorie, meal that is quick and easy to make any time.
I’ve always been in decent shape having played football most of my life until finishing my college career a couple of years back. While playing, I tried to eat everything in site to keep my weight up as to play my position well. That being said, by the time I was done playing, I was at a much heavier weight than I wanted to be. I knew I wouldn’t be as active going forward, as I was with football driving me for all those years.
So, I had to turn to food. I had to completely reevaluate my relationship with food and figure out a way to have some set rules (calories, macros), while at the same time leaving a little room for me to enjoy foods that I love to experience. That’s what I did. I didn’t do a crazy diet or elaborate workout schedule, but studied food in general and how it effects our health. I then took a core group of foods that I loved, that were great for me, and made them staples in my diet.
One such food as you probably have guessed by now, was the sweet potato. I always loved the taste of sweet potatoes, they’re very filling, low calorie, cheap, and extremely nutritious. So, I started eating them. I would eat them plain, in bowls with shredded chicken, etc. The one problem I encountered, was the time it took to cook them. I had only cooked them as I knew how to which was to bake in tinfoil or boil.
I was eating a couple of sweet potatoes a week so I knew I had to find a quicker way to make them. After a quick google search, the easy answer was the microwave. I don’t know why I had not thought of it, it seemed so simple. Ever since then, I’ve made my sweet potato quickly in the microwave. It was a game changer for me, and I hope it can be for you too!
