Sweet Potato Burrito


We ride, we run, we swim, and we even do strength training! So why is it that we do all these activities only then to eat a salad or some bland grilled chicken after when we could all easily could consume 1 large pizza and a full box of Oreos and be more “satisfied”? I mean come on you just crushed several hours on the bike or just ran a hard 10k. We should be able to eat what ever we want shouldn’t we? Also you may be thinking, “I can’t afford to eat healthy, it’s cheaper to get a $5 pizza from little ceaser’s”. Well in reality, that’s not true. You can eat very well and satisfying after or before a ride at a very low cost. There is many meals that you could implement into your diet that to really enhance your over-all performance and weight. One of the meals that I think is awesome would be the Sweet Potato Burrito by SkratchLabs. Breakfast is a highly important meal, this is when you start your day and these will be burned off through out the day. Breakfast is your energy levels for the day so I and other professionals would recommend eating a huge breakfast!

Here I bring you the Sweet Potato egg burrito:

Ingredients 1 cup cooked sweet potato, packed 8 ounces lean ground turkey 6 eggs, lightly beaten 1 tablespoon liquid amino acids ½ tablespoon brown sugar ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese 6 large (10-inch) whole wheat tortillas, warmed

Optional Additions 6 tablespoons prepared salsa 2 cups cooked red kidney or adzuki beans, drained and rinsed 2 teaspoons taco spice chopped cilantro or chives Preparation Mash the cooked sweet potato (peeled or not) Bring a lightly oiled saute pan to medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and brown. Add mashed sweet potato and eggs, plus optional additions, if using; stir until the eggs have set to a soft scramble. Remove from heat. Add liquid amino acids, brown sugar, and salt and pepper to taste.

*** Divide the mixture among warmed tortillas. Top with shredded cheese and roll up as burritos, being sure to tuck in both short edges before folding the long ones (this will keep the contents from spilling out). Wrap in plastic and refrigerate or freeze.
