Do you have a friend that you feel like is your workout motivation? I can think of several of my friends who help motivate me to work out. One of those friends is my friend Kaylee. She is so strong. She is such  great runner, and always amazes me when we do TRX. Everytime we work out together I am motivated to train harder so that I can be stronger and faster like Kaylee.

One thing that I think helps Kaylee so much is how she eats. A little while ago we were over at Kaylee’s house and were talking about what we ate for breakfast and lunch most days. My friend Kaylee said that she eats the same thing for breakfast and lunch everyday. For breakfast she has a yogurt parfait with yogurt, banana, and granola. For lunch she eats a sweet potato with two fried eggs and salsa on top. My first thought was that those two meals sound delicious but I also wondered how I could spruce up the lunch to make it even more delicious.

This loaded sweet potatoe is the answer to how I can spruce up that sweet potato lunch. It is filled with ground turkey, corn, zuchini and leaks. Hello Delicious!
