1/ Sweet Jacket Potato
A medium sweet potato is around 100 calories and contains zero fat – hooray! Packed with vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin D, iron, magnesium and potassium, it’s the perfect post-gym treat for replenishing and reloading glycogen stores. And made with dairy free olive spread, you have a great source of good fats.
1 medium sweet potato
1 tin of tuna
1 red onion
1 tbsp. soured cream
Bake your sweet jacket potato at 180°C (fan oven) for 45 minutes. Drain the tuna, dice the red onion and mix together with the soured cream and coriander. Once the jacket potato has cooled a little, spread with olive spread and then top with the tuna. Add pepper to taste.We heart kale...
