Spicy Stuffed Sweet Potatoes – Oil Free

Rarely a day goes by that I’m not eating some type of potatoes. If eating potatoes was a problem, then I’d be in deep. Luckily though I can eat potatoes all day long and receive only good things from them. Yes, this is basically a potato appreciation post.

I started a new workout routine this week. I rejoined the gym after a lot of time away. I quit going last spring because who wants to workout inside when you can do it outside? Living in Pennsylvania doesn’t allow for outside workouts to happen year around sadly, so I’m back to lifting. I enjoy it a lot and it’s nice to get back at it. But holy wow have I been hungry this week. I can hardly keep up with all of the food I’ve been eating! Seriously! I eat a lot in general because I’m pretty active and fueling your body is important but this is a whole other level of eating a lot. No complaints though. I’m loving it and taking full advantage of the hunger by making some awesome spur of the moment recipes like these spicy sweet potatoes. There’s really nothing better than a delectable, warm sweet potato right?!
