Baked chicken with sundried tomato on top and salad and sweet potato!
So my roommate thought I was a crazy person for making this but it’s SO GOOD! She just doesn’t understand…
- 2 Low Cal Whole Wheat Tortillas (I use La tortilla factory)
- 2 TBSP Peanut butter
- 1 Banana
- 1 Small sweet potato (or 1/2 large)
- Skin sweet potato and cut into round slices and cook in microwave for 5 minutes
- Spread peanut butter on both tortillas
- Slice banana
- Layer sweet potato slices onto one tortilla
- Layer banana slices on there too
- Cover with the other tortilla
- Heat in the toaster oven to heat up to your liking
This is incredible, I’m telling you.
Drizzle with some syrup for some extra goodness ;)
Oatmeal + Sweet Potato = pure amazing.
- 1 Small Sweet Potato
- 1/3 Old Fashioned Oats
- 2/3 Water (plus a little more)
- Peanut butter
- Maple Syrup (I used sugar free)
- Brown Sugar (optional)
1. Poke holes into your sweet potato, then cook it in the microwave for 8 minutes. (MAKE SURE YOU POKE HOLES OR IT WILL EXPLODE! lol)
2. When its done, put on a plate and set aside. Add oats and water in a bowl, stir, then put in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Stir, then put in for an additional one minute- the oatmeal will expand, stop the microwave right before it overflows out of the bowl.
3. Slice open your sweet potato down the middle, scrape out the insides and put onto the plate and mash it up!
4. Add sweet potato to bowl of oats and stir until well incorporated, you might have to mash it up a bit with your spoon.
5. My favorite step- ADD YOUR TOPPINGS! I topped this with peanut butter, syrup, and brown sugar! Top as much as you feel like, whatever satisfies your taste buds.
6. When your done adding the toppings, MIX IT UP! and DIG IN! These are incredible! Additional topping ideas are: cinnamon, banana, chocolate chips (yes this tastes good), yogurt, pumpkin pie spice, etc!
- 1 Sweet Potato
- 1 Egg white
- 1 TBSP BBQ sauce
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Peel the sweet potato then slice it up into fry-like shapes and put in big ziplock bag.
2. Mix 1 egg white with the BBQ sauce in a bowl (I used low cal bbq sauce)
3. Add egg mixture to the fries in the ziplock bag and mix around to coat the fries
4. Spray a pan with cooking spray and lay out fries in an even layer
5. Bake in oven for 10 minutes, flip fries then bake for another 10 minutes. If your fries are thick, cook longer. Keep an eye on them, the bbq will make them blacken and cook quickly.
6. Eat them!
Instead of BBQ, you can add cinnamon and brown sugar to the egg white to make some extra sweet fries! :) or just add any spices you want!
Dinner at work:
- Sweet Potato
- Organic Ketchup
- 1 cup cambells light harvest beef and barley soup
- yogurt bowl! (plain yogurt w/ raspberry sugar free jello mix, mango, and black berries!)
This was totally experimental, but they came out good!
- 2 small sweet potatoes (chopped)
- 1 large carrot
- 1 tsp cinnamon (or more if you want)
- 1/4 cup egg substitute (optional)
- 2 TBSP sugar free syrup (or maple syrup)
- 1 splenda packet (optional)
Chop up the carrot and sweet potatoes and boil them in water until you can easily stick a fork in (easily mashable, probably around 7-8 minutes)Drain and return to potMASH IT UP! Then add in the syrup, eggs, and cinnamon.Spray a skillet with cooking spray and put on medium heat. Use a wooden spoon to scoop out the potatoes onto the skillet in the form of a patty. Let them cook a few minutes then flip them when they’re at your liked consistency.
I ate mine with some organic ketchup! yum! My full dinner was three of these patties, some pineapple, roasted zucchini, and spinach:
I made 8 patties. Next time I think I will add in some oats for a more veggie burger-like texture.
Nutrition for one patty:

Not too shabby! Enjoy!
I don’t know what to call this, so I guess i’ll name it harvest oats because it reminds me of fall time, however it does resemble carrot cake oats. I put a lot of stuff in this badboy!
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup egg substitute
- 1/4 cup Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Bisque
- 1/4 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 cup grated carrot
- Drop coconut extract
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Sugar Free Pancake Syrup
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- 1/2 cup crushed pineapple
- 1 tbsp chocolate PB2
I was going to add pumpkin, but I didn’t feel like opening a new can, and plus the sweet potato bisque worked well and was an easy add in.
with a little brown mustard, relish, lettuce, and tomato over 1/2 of a sandwich thin
Sides included a sweet potato (of course!) and some leftover red kidney beans :)
