Baked Sweet Potatoes 4 Minutes or Less!

 Did you know that it is recommended that you include some fat in your meal when eating a root vegetable ? Why? Research has shown that this fat increases our intake of beta-carotene. This has been shown to help decrease cardiovascular disease as well as oral cavity, and lung cancersHttp://www.nutrition-and-you.com
Potato Express Bag














My husband and I were very happy when we found this bake potato bag for the microwave. It really works and is less than ten dollars. We love baked potatoes but they take so long in the oven and they were cooked somewhat tough in the microwave until we found this bag. We like white potatoes but have substituted sweet for most of our meals as sweet potatoes carry more punch in nutritional values. If we are grilling out we place the microwaved potato in foil and keep it warm on the top warming rack on the grill.



Grilled Chicken For Two

Ingredients

2 chicken breast

1/2 cup fat-free Italian dressing

 2 tablespoons rosemary, parsley, and basil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

Place thawed chicken breast in a glass pan

Soak with a Italian dressing in refrigerator for 2-3 hours

Before grilling add herbs and lemon juice to the chicken

Place on a preheated grill that is hot, set at medium-high heat

Allow the chicken to cook until they are charred on each side around 4 minutes

 or until the meat thermometer reaches 165 degrees.

Note: My husband cooked Turkey bacon and wrapped around his chicken . He placed it back on the grill for an extra two minutes. 


Grilled Vidalia Onions


Grilled  Vidalia onions are simply the best. This is a sweeter onion so you are not left with the aftertaste, just the good taste. We just peel the onion and brush some olive oil on it. You can use skewers or just slice round and grill to 5-10 minutes. I like to see the grill marks on mine.
