Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Wrap

Roasted Sweet Potato & Black Bean Burrito

finish I had a great experience this past weekend at the Oklahoma City Half Marathon, plus the weather was gorgeous with minimal wind, which is almost unheard of in Oklahoma. Being my first half marathon, I was guaranteed to set a personal record; I came in at a respectable 2:14:48. And after crossing the finish line, apart from a few unwanted dates with my foam roller, I’m no worse for the wear.

 

It’s really important to focus on proper recovery through nutrition after big events; muscles need repair, and immune systems are a little weak. Minus the nutella & fruit waffle I shared with my husband at the local arts festival after the marathon, I’ve tried to pack in as many nutrient-dense foods as possible–think quality protein and lots of fruits and vegetables.

 

I don’t have a problem eating plenty of fruits (they are sweet after all), but vegetables are a different story. My favorite way to get in lots of vegetables at once is to roast them in the oven. For easy delivery, I roll them all up in a whole grain wrap. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this delicious and slightly smoky sweet potato and black bean wrap; it’s topped with mashed avocados and tomatoes–getting in your veggies can be pretty tasty.
