Healthy Food=Gross??????

I have found it seems the common belief for a lot of people is that healthy only equals salads and soggy steamed veggies. I can see why it's so hard to keep eating healthy if that is your only idea of what is healthy. After awhile those things do become gross or tiresome. I've decided I'll share a few recipes that I consider healthy and are far from gross. This is by request from one of my sisters. I hope others can  use the recipes. I know I know you just know you hate the veggies I am using. I think you should just give some of these recipes a try. You might just end up surprising yourself. Here is my first recipe.

Roasted Mayo Sweet Potato And Spinach

I peeled the sweet potato skin completely off. I then sliced part way down along the width. I then put about a tablespoon of this yummy chipotle mayo I get at our local farmers market. You can use any of your favorite mayos. Plain would also work with some good seasonings. I then placed in a cold oven. I started heating up the oven at 385 degrees. It took around 30-40 minutes. I placed about two cups of spinach on top for the last 5-10 minutes. Check for softness.

Since I did not end up having eggs in the morning I made a fried egg and served the potato with about another tablespoon of mayo. It was delicious and I was more than filled up. Enjoy!
