Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Goat Cheese and Spinach

Today, things just got real.

Next week I’m starting the familiarization trials for my research. If you don’t know, I’m doing a chocolate milk study. Actually, it’s chocolate soymilk. I’m comparing animal vs. soy protein on muscle recovery.

Baaaasically, my life is about to get super stressful and my schedule is about to get packed. For forever.

Happy happy joy joy. I’ll keep you posted, though. I mean, aren’t you at the edge of your seats to know if soy protein is comparable to animal protein?

In the mean time, this recipe is awesome. I had never made mashed potatoes before. They seemed daunting. And I don’t really eat baked potatoes, so I used sweet potatoes. Let me just tell you – this recipe is super easy. And all you need is a fork! Not only of those super fancy masher things, even though that might be nice.

But, I have also successfully checked two things off my bucket list in two days! What should be next?!
