freda sweet potato Here’s my main meal version.  Perhaps choose a slightly smaller sweet potato if you are adding protein.

Oven bake a 200g medium chicken breast in foil (no fat required) and then allow it to cool slightly.

Mix together 1 tsp wholegrain mustard seed, 1st olive oil and 1 tbsp of cider vinegar.

Slice chicken breast into 4 pieces and place on a plate of raw spinach.  Add various other salad ingredients eg. raw carrot, tomato, cucumber or radish.

Place the baked sweet potato on the plate and drizzle with dressing to taste – absolutely delicious and by reducing the sweet potato by 1/3 and adding chicken, the calories  increase by 175 kcals, with addition of 44g of protein.
