CLEAN EATING RECIPES FOR WEIGHT LOSS: Yams & Spinach
This simple Yams & Spinach dish is one of my favorite clean eating recipes for weight loss and makes for an EASY lunch or dinner. I bake up a whole bag of organic yams and sauté a couple bags of spinach at once so I can throw this together really quick throughout the week. And, if you’re a Fixer, this is easily done using your for containers!

Instructions
  1. If you’re cooking a single serving, you can microwave the yam on high until done (make sure you poke the skin with a fork). If you’re making up a big batch, I prefer baking them at 375 F until done. For smaller yams, about 20-30 minutes is good…larger ones need up to an hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium nonstick skillet, preheat the oil over medium heat then sauté the spinach until soft. You can do your single serving or a big batch—if you’re cooking up the whole bag like I do, set aside your 1/4 cup and put the rest in an airtight container for the next meal.
  3. Mash or slice 1-2 yams (skins and all!) in a bowl and top with sautéed spinach, goat or feta cheese, and pecans.
  4. Season with salt, pepper and a splash of balsamic vinegar, if desired.
Recipe Notes

If you have any of those gourmet oil and vinegar places near you, I urge you to get yourself over there and treat yourself to some balsamic vinegar like you’ve never tasted before! My favorites are white balsamic and regular fig balsamic!
