Catfish is is low in calories and packed with lean protein. It’s loaded with healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. It’s a great source to provide your body with omega-3 fats and vitamin B12. Our chef’s oven bake the catfish then pair it with a side of sweet potato and collard green bake. Sweet potatoes and greens may sound like a strange combination but this side is a fan favorite! Just heat and eat for delicious portion controlled meals.
Sweet potatoes fall under the starch category. So, are sweet potatoes something you should include in your daily diet? Yes! Sweet potatoes are from the complex carbohydrate category. Of all carbs, complex carbs are best for a healthy diet. Some benefits of complex carbs are that they slow down the absorption of sugars. This assists in removing cholesterol. It also slows down digestion. When digestion is slowed this results in keeping you full longer. Which in turn reduces the amount of food that you eat. Complex carbohydrates are also great to eat before and after high intensity work outs. With all this in mind, sweet potatoes are a great addition to any healthy diet. However, with any carbs, portion control is important if eating them often. A typical serving of sweet potatoes is about a half a cup in our Optimized Lifestyle meals.
