Power Recipe: Sweet Potato – Tuna Mash

Ok, diet isn’t my specialty, but here is a tasty concoction I’ve developed that is easy to throw together, tastes phenomenal, and is a great balance of carb and protein. It makes for a powerful lunch on your heavy lifting days!

Doesn't that look tasty!

 

Ingredients:

  • 5 oz canned tuna
  • 1/2 cups chopped sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 slice bacon (hey, I’m a powerlifter, be happy it’s not a donut!)

Directions:

  1. Fry up bacon over medium high and drain off bacon grease
  2. Add potatoes and onions. Cook 15-20 minutes until sweet potatoes are cooked through and softened.
  3. Add spinach and tuna and continue cooking until spinach is fully cooked

If you want a leaner option, you can remove the bacon, or replace it with turkey bacon.
