Jared's Super Awesome Sweet Potato Surprise


This is Jared, CrossFit Countdown's newest Level 1 Certified CrossFit Trainer. He took 2nd place at the WV Mountaineer Games and sometime in the day, he was refueling with the mixture in the photo. I asked him what he was eating, then asked him if he would share his recipe in this guest blog. Lucky for us, he agreed!

Jared says:

"Ingredients -
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into small cubes
2 apples peeled and diced into small cubes
1/2 cup pecans
2 TBSP honey (or agave nectar)
1/2 TBSP cinnamon
salt to taste
2 TBSP coconut oil (or any oil you like)

Heat oil in skillet. Add diced sweet potato and saute for about 10 minutes. Add apples and saute until tender. Add honey, cinnamon, sat, and pecans and mix well. Taste and make any adjustments needed. (more salt and the like) Also, if the mixture becomes dry during cooking, you can add a little water, apple juice, or oil until you get a desired texture.
Enjoy!"

Jared brings good food to our meals at CrossFit Countdown. He's a fireman with mad skills in the kitchen. Let's all try this recipe!
