Standard

We took the processed pasta out and packed this with the nutrient power house, sweet potatoes! Yes, this is a higher carb recipe, but that makes for a great post workout meal. Carbs can be your friend for post workout meals! Check out the tab “post workout” in our Categories for more ideas.
