Hello there! This is Dan from Primal4Life and this afternoon I am looking for yet another tasty post-workout meal. I just burned up some calories after a decent weight-training session, and I’m looking for something scrumptious to put between some Julian Bakery’s Coconut Paleo Bread. It’s been a while since I have enjoyed a sweet potato, and usually I melt in some coconut manna with cinnamon. That triple whammy is one of my favorite things to eat. But since this is post-workout, we are looking for some protein as well. Let’s add some chicken to this sandwich, because we can!
With my toaster oven, I broil my coconut Paleo Bread to crisp it up. Meanwhile, I microwave a sweet potato for approximately eight minutes, and at the same time a chicken breast is on the grill pan. Let’s see who wins the cooking race! And… It’s the sweet potato! So in order to keep it warm, I throw it on the grill pan after slicing it in half. I also make sure I keep the potato far away from the chicken, just for safety purposes. Now is the time where I add in some cinnamon and coconut manna, to allow the melting process to begin. The Paleo Bread is done shortly after, so I remove and plate the two heavenly slices of gluten-free goodness. Once the chicken is ready, I lay it to rest on a slice of bread, then take the sweet potato and mash it on top of my protein of choice, allowing its beautiful sweetness to dwarf the chicken breast. Top with your other slice of bread, and we have lift-off!

I am not sure where I originally had the idea of sweet potato with coconut, but I am thankful for that day. Do you know what else I’m thankful for? A bread that is GMO free, one that is gluten and grain free, one that has great ingredients that make it high in fiber and low in calories, and one that actually has all of this but also tastes great!!!!! Julian Bakery’s Paleo Bread is what I’m referring to, and thank goodness for them!!!!!! The sandwich was perfect, I loved the coconut sweet potato mix, and the chicken and coconut bread mixed in perfectly! For a post-workout meal, it gave me the nutrients I need, without the blood sugar spike from traditional bread. Gotta love it!!!
