Add a can of drained and rinsed black beans to the pan and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
Warm up some whole wheat tortillas in the oven or on a stovetop griddle.
Assemble the burritos by filling each tortilla with the sweet potato and black bean mixture, and any other desired toppings such as diced tomatoes, avocado, or shredded cheese.

Turkey and Vegetable Stir-Fry:
Cut 1 pound of turkey breast into thin strips.
Heat some oil in a wok or large pan over high heat.
Add the turkey to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until it is cooked through.
Remove the turkey from the pan and set it aside.
In the same pan, add any desired vegetables such as bell peppers, onions, broccoli, and mushrooms. Stir-fry for 3-5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
Add the turkey back to the pan and stir-fry for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Serve the stir-fry over a bed of brown rice.

Energy Bites:
In a food processor, blend 1 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of nut butter, 1/2 cup of honey, and 1/2 cup of your favorite dried fruit.
Pulse until everything is well combined and the mixture can be rolled into balls.
Roll the mixture into balls about 2-3cm in diameter.
Store the energy bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
