Mega-Baked Sweet Potato

Tuesday. Fencing night, and I need something light, fulfilling, fast energy, slow energy and protein.

What better than a sweet potato?

What better? Sweet potato loaded with goodies!

Mega-Baked Sweet Potato

Go mad ...

Sweet Potato

Spike all over, cut in half and commit to the oven face down on an ovenproof plate for half an hour, or so.

Once soft inside, retrieve and crush up the insides pushing in a good slab of butter.


I emptied the fridge ...
  • Spinach softened in a little butter
  • Boiled egg, sliced
  • Bacon, shredded and fried off
  • Cucumber and tomato sliced into matchsticks
  • Avocado, halved and sliced
  • Cottage Cheese (single ingredient)
  • Chives
  • Splash of Tabasco all over (the food)
Two forks, one in each hand ... wolf it down!

Now, off to stab friends in the chest for the evening ...


  1. Nice one. Stuffed sweet potatoes are my post kettle-bell training meals. Especially with a tin of sardines...mmm.
    Although mine never look as pretty as yours does.

    1. Haha! Cheers! It occurred to me that you can't actually see the potato - now that is stuffed to the gills. I find it a great pre-activity meal giving fast blood sugar, longer term energy and just a bit of protein to keep me tickled up ... pure whey afterwards and no cramps, tiredness or muscle fatigue the day after,

      Thanks for stopping by ...
