M,

Slow roast sweet potatoes, no need at all for sugar or butter or anything. They turn out so sweet and delicious.

The dill is optional, you can use whatever spices you like (or none).

I was just on a big sweet potatoes and fish kick.

They are soooo good with garlic. I had no idea. I had never even heard of sweet potatoes being savory before because they are just cooked as desserts here.

I'll call it a day on eating; I feel really full after dinner. Tomorrow's lunch will probably be high calorie and I want to hit my weekly 1400cal avg target.

Nope, my scale has stopped working. I'm sure I'm well below 1400cals if it's under logged though.

M,

Try out different varieties of sweet potato. I think a lot of them are tastier than what’s usually used in sweet casseroles.

When I went to the u.s. this year I ate a lot of sweet potato and the fatties in my family couldn't fathom the concept of eating just a sweet potato*. They also found it disgusting when I let them try it. I guess once you're on crack, something that only vaguely tastes like the crack you're used to just seems pointless to eat anymore.

* I even put a little butter and cinnamon on it. Still not crack enough.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

People think I'm weird because I eat the sweet potato skins. But I think they're tasty.

Baked sweet potatoes, roasted butternut squash, acorn squash "fries"...I love autumn!

VR,

Skins on roasted sweet potatoes are great. A couple minutes under the broiler at the end makes them even tastier.

Sweet potatoes with marshmallows LOL WUT?

Never heard of the sweet potatoes as a desert. Just use them instead of regular potatos and as sweet potato fries. I put em in some canned soup if i want to pretend im being healthy.

Are you in the U.S.?

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I am in Canada and have never heard of sweet potato with marshmallow. I brush them with olive oil, wrap in foil and throw them on the bbq for just over an hour and they taste amazing to me with nothing else on them. Now I want to try slowing the process even further to see if there is any noticeable improvement in flavour.

Here's an example (even more bizarre, it's usually a side dish, not a dessert):

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Reasonable amount of calories from death row label is 20%.

Yesterday you had close to 0, so I am sure 40% today is just fine.

That was ytf mentality. Eat pizza means day is ruined, let's make it a cheat day.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

Every day is a cheat day.

(MLY life for past 20 years.)

NB: I routinely make and eat whole pizzas. Or until I feel like vomiting. Dunno what everyone is qq about. Pizza is delicious.

Yeah, I ate that pizza up.

I guess my food thought process is still in a immature phase. Kinda like when you have to act like like you don't want/aren't initiating sex because you don't want to be a hoe. I have to gripe about having to eat pizza and pretend I don't want it so I don't feel like fatty.

MLYLT,

Is this the first time you've realized this is what's going on after someone has said "very unlucky?"

The recipe i use is basically what you do, except a little lower and slower. It definitely makes a difference.

I haven't tried this, but apparently par-cooking them before roasting makes them even better:
