Leftover sweet potato? No problem—throw it in a smoothie! This literally tastes like pie in liquid form. Not only is it tasty, but it is also the perfect thing to have post-workout, with a healthy balance of complex carbohydrates and protein.  Sweet potatoes make for the perfect fuel the night before a hard long run, as the tuber will help you store glycogen so you can avoid hitting “the wall.”
