Cajun Style Sweet Potato2012-06-30
This sweet potato makes a great post workout meal when taken together with your preferred protein source or even a pre workout snack if you eat at least one hour before training.
I know many bodybuilders prefer to take liquid carbs post gym but I’m usually so hungry after a heavy session that I need to eat my carbs.
I usually take my post workout protein as a whey, getting that down me immediately after a session then taking my time gorging on my carb food!
Depending on the size of your potatoes, you should get around a whopping 30g carbs out of this delicious snack.
- 2 medium (5oz) sweet potatoes
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon thyme
