How do you cook your sweet potatoes post workout?
I was just reading a post by PublicEnemy and I didn't want to hijack his thread so I thought it'd be polite to start my own.
My question is, how do you guys here on AM prepare your sweet potatoes for your post workout meals??? I ask because I have been reading quite a bit about how much of an amazing food they are and I just got some tonight and dont really know how to prepare them.
The quickest recipe I could find in a quick Google search was about 35 mins and thats just cooking time. Is there any way to pre make this wonder-food and store it for a few days?
Im totally in the dark here, Im a TERRIBLE cook. lol Help a fellow AM brother out.

Could always make a big ole bulk batch of sweet potato fries that'll last a couple/few days. U can find the recipe in the recipe section on here.

Bake them in the oven at 350 for about 35-40 minutes. You can then scoop them out, mash them up with a bit of butter (if your a keto/anabolic dieter) or a few tsp. brown sugar and store them in a container in the fridge. When you want them, pop them in the microwave and WHAM - Sweet taters!!

You could just microwave them. I used to do it all the time.
Taken from another website:
1 sweet potato
"Wash well but don't peel. Prick skin with fork all over. Place on a paper towel in microwave. Cook on high for 5 minutes. Turn, placing what HAD been on the bottom on top. Cook another 5 minutes. Vegetable Love says 13 - 15 minutes for 2 one-pound sweet potatoes. (Microwave strengths vary, experiment with yours til you know.)"
Cut it up into wedges or mash it. I like it mashed, salt and pepper to taste. 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and brown sugar optional.

Thanks guys!!! I wasn't sure if they would stay good in the fridge after preparation. I will try all of those recipes for sure!

Awww TheBreeze you're so thoughtful...I was just reading a post by PublicEnemy and I didn't want to hijack his thread so I thought it'd be polite to start my own.
You could make baked potato chips... I've never tried them with sweet potatoes but they are soooo legit with reds. Crisp them a little bit in olive oil and then bake them slow and long. They turn out pretty well with sea salt and a little white wine vinegar.

Damn that sounds good.
I'm having some grilled red potatoes right now, among other grilled vegetables and roast pork tenderloin.

Thanks for all the tips fellas. I like the one below I think the best. I have about 5 yams in the cupboard so I'll be cooking them up sometime soon. I hope they come out as good as y'all make them sound. Too bad the only sweet potatoes Ive really ever had were 1. sweetened beyond belief(but delicious) and 2. from a TV dinner...I think the 2nd ones were the best. LOL

Ha its completely understandable. It can be amazing how easily someone's ego can become damaged on a message board. I myself am guilty too.I just saw that. LOL

I know this is a bit of a late post, but I want to add something... Add Cinnimon!
Cinnimon is insulinogenic, and will aid with the uptake of the carbohydrate restoring glycogen at a faster rate. Plus, I personally think it makes it taste all the better too (and I love the taste of the sweet potato regardless!).

Sweet potatos with all the toppings are great.
