Found this recipe in a runners magazine, looks super yummy, so I thought I would share it with you.
“Just a single 100-calorie sweet potato supplies more than 250 percent of the DV for vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene, the powerful antioxidant. Sweet potatoes are also a good source of vitamin C, potassium, iron, and the two trace minerals manganese and copper. Many runners fail to meet their manganese and copper needs, which can have an impact on performance since these minerals are crucial for healthy muscle function”
These beauties would make a great appetizer dipped in salsa, Sweet Thai Chilli, or low-fat dressing. One serving will give you 90 percent of the DV for vitamin A.
2 medium sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/8″ rounds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, toss sweet-potato slices with olive oil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread in a single layer on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake (turning every 10 minutes) for 30 to 40 minutes until brown and the edges curl. Cool slightly and sprinkle with sesame seeds and parsley.
ENJOY!!!!!!!! Happy Running
