Did you know that you do not have to use flour to make a delicious waffle? All you need is a sweet potato, some eggs and waffle iron. This is one of my favorite, quick sweet potato recipes that your appetite and your muscles will surely thank you for. It gives new meaning to “Chicken & Waffles.”
Ingredients (make 2 large waffles for 1 or 2 servings):
• 225g sweet potato
• 1 egg
• 3 egg whites
• Seasonings: 1 tsp allspice, 1 tbsp cinnamon
1. Grate a raw sweet potato into a bowl.
2. Add 1 egg, 3 egg whites and seasonings to the bowl. Mix with a fork.
3. Set your waffle iron on medium high heat and spray with coconut oil so that the waffle does not stick.
4. Pour the batter onto the waffle iron and spread evenly. Close the lid and let it cook for about 5 minutes or until your waffle iron indicates the waffle is cooked.

About the Author
Kevin is a fitness enthusiast out of Dallas, TX. When he saw himself in his friend’s Facebook photo he knew it was time to make a change. He was overweight, felt sluggish and had steadily rising blood pressure. So, he did what many people try to do – he started exercising to try to “out train” a poor diet. He quickly learned through periods of weight cycling that if he was going to accomplish his fitness goals, it would have to be through a steady, healthy diet, complemented by hard work in the gym.
He started studying nutrition and got started cooking! In 2012 Kevin started a small blog to share his meals online in order to build a community around healthy food ideas.
The blog was called Fit Men Cook and it had a simple message and belief system – “Our bodies are built in the kitchen, Sculpted in the gym.”
Kevin firmly believes that healthier food options do not have to be boring. Ever. In fact, they are pretty tasty!
Fit (Wo)Men Cook is the “fit” story of all of us. It is taking your individual success stories and things (in nutrition & fitness) that have worked for you, and sharing those ideas with the masses so we can all grow, improve together. Just everyday people – no matter the fitness level or athletic ability – aiming to live the best life possible through fitness and healthy eating. Are you a Fit (Wo)Men Cook?
