Sometimes the gap between meals is just too long for a growling tummy. And despite the best-laid plans, eating a “light snack” can often turn into a full-on chowfest. To make the most out of a mid-day meal, pick a healthy bite full of flavor and nutrients. A mashed sweet potato jazzed up with curry powder, salt, and pepper is loaded with fiber to keep you full and zest to keep those taste buds happy. To prepare this A+ snack, pop a medium sweet potato in the microwave for six minutes, and then mash it up with a fork.
