Tropical Sweet Potato

The best way to stick with a nutrition plan that is going to benefit you is to try it out and figure out if you can actually see yourself eating that particular way for the rest of your life.  I tried other diets that were difficult because I couldn’t stand them and knew that they wouldn’t last.  I looked forward to cheat days and ended up cheating more and more.  It was the same bland food every day.  The recipes that I found and came up with this time make me realize that I can eat like this for the rest of my life.  I actually enjoy the food that I eat.  I eat sweet potatoes almost every day and in some cases more then one time a day.  I like sweet potatoes but rather not eat them the same way all of the time.  By experimentation I came up with the following recipe.
