Joe and I decided to have steak for dinner tonight. What's the perfect side dish for steak? Baked potato. The more I've read recently, though, the more that I hear about sweet potatoes. They have lots of vitamins and minerals in them, which is more than a regular potato can say for itself. So, instead of a baked potato, I had a baked sweet potato!
In addition to the health benefits, I LOVE the taste of sweet potatoes! The consistency is smoother than a regular potato, and they complement the steak very well. I added a little bit of butter and salt to my sweet potato, but I've heard that butter and cinnamon are perfect sweet potato toppings. I highly recommend baked sweet potatoes to any steak lover, or anyone who just wants a tasty, healthy side dish for any meal.
To go along with the steak today, I had a glass of wine. Glass of wine + drinking no water today = serious dehydration and no running. :( I guess I will push back my training schedule a day and make it a priority to go for a run tomorrow. That, or I'll just do a short run on Saturday morning along with a total body weight workout, and then still plan on my long run for Sunday.
I hate that I'm not going for a run today, though, because the weather is PERFECT for a run in the evening. In fact, check out the Eastern-central Florida weather for the next few days:
