Sweet Potato with Walnuts

sweet-potatoes-walnutsIt is so great when diet food is as good as non-diet food! I wish you could smell this one. This is a good side dish to go with a protein. You wouldn’t want to eat this alone since it not good to eat carbs without balancing them with protein.

I bought this little ceramic cooking dish to use in the microwave (I know some of you might not approve of the microwave, but 6 meals a day, you gotta take some shortcuts!) You might have seen it on TV, it’s called StoneWave. It cooks everything quick and well in the microwave, even eggs! I have been trying it out this week with my veggies and carbs.

Ingredients:
• 4 oz peeled and cubed sweet potatoes
• 1/4 cup walnuts
• Cinnamon
• Vanilla

I’m really picky about vanilla since most of the ones at the store are only “vanilla flavored”, not actual vanilla. Buy pure vanilla.

Directions:
1. Put the sweet potatoes, walnuts, 1 tbs water, cinnamon and vanilla to taste, in the StoneWave.
2. Put in microwave for 3.5 minutes.3. Take it out and eat.

So easy and it smells like baked apples. You can do this with apples by the way, but it wouldn’t be on a weight loss diet since fruit is full of sugar.

Walnuts are a good source of healthy fats, which you need if you want to lose fat. And sweet potatoes are a super carb so they are always a great choice!
