When you’re tired & hungry. . . Print Recipe Print Recipe

. . . you throw EVERYTHING into a sweet potato

and then you stuff your face.

At least that’s what I do.  did

Moving on.  Why didn’t anyone tell me how awesome Body Pump is?? Just kidding Maria, pretty sure you’ve been telling me about it since the day we met. Now,  WHY DIDN’T I LISTEN TO YOU?? I love when someone else kicks my ass in the weight department. Cardio, I’m fine. Weights, forget it. Best part, 45 minutes after class and I was already sore.

My husband, “Pain is only weakness leaving the body”. Thanks, really.

For moments when I’m starving and can hardly find the energy to cook [1/2 lazy], I’m thankful for my 5 minute dinner’s like this.

One day a week, I’ll roast a bunch of veggies [mix varies], bake several chicken breasts and sweet potatoes and keep on the fridge for meals that week.

Ingredient Options:

  • [Leftover] roasted vegetables  – zucchini, yellow squash, etc.
  • Protein, such as grilled chicken.
  • Dried cranberries for a little sweetness
  • Cheese – depending on preference
  • Nuts – walnuts or almonds, chopped and toasted

Throw in a little or a lot of whatever ingredients you chose.  Season with salt + pepper [ or lemon pepper, another fave] and  Enjoy!

    5 minute meals are just my style and this looks AMAZING! Love the idea of stuffing a sweet potato with all of those yummy things!

    I love this idea! Especially since there are more nights than I hate to admit to that I’m too tired (and lazy) to cook! And this would make a perfect easy and healthy lunch, too!

    So happy you liked Body Pump. Isn’t it the best class ever? I love the music, instructors, tracks, and the soreness after:) It is a good kind of sore! We need to take a class together someday:)

    Amazing – looks so delicious!

    Everyone should do body pump! I’ve been doing it on and off for years and it constantly kicks my butt. I love how they change it up every few months with new music tracks.

    Keep up the awesome work – love the blog!

    Sweet potatoes are my go-to for quick and delicious snacks/meals. I’ve never thought to stuff them with other vegetables though, so thanks for the tip!

    Dumb question but how do you re-heat everything that you already cooked? Sweet potato, chicken, veggies, etc.? Thanks!

  • WithStyleGrace

    I’ll either add the chicken and veggies to a pan and heat that way, or a microwave. I make the sweet potato that day and then just toss in the chicken/veggie mixture once I pull it out of the oven.
