zesty grilled chicken2It’s that time of year where the days are long, the nights are humid, and the mosquitos are militant. It’s also the time of year when people are out in the yard firing up the grills. Unfortunately, typical BBQ fare is not always the most diet friendly. Have you seen the nutrition facts on a hot dog with a bun? Its not pretty. And who only has one?

Warm Sweet Potato Salad

warm sweet potato salad 1I love sweet potatoes.  They are nutritionally equivalent to white potatoes but they add a lot more flavor which means you need less quantity to get better quality in terms of flavor.  If you want to add protein and make it a meal, throw in some chicken breast to make it more substantial.  Regardless, this recipe is a good low calorie healthy one with a bit of spice thrown in to help you keep warm in the cold winter months.  I got this one from http://deliciouslyella.com.  Enjoy!
