Santa Fe Tuna Salad w Roasted Sweet potato

I was looking for something clean to eat today. Trying to do some sort of Covid cleans since the Covid gain. I’m sure most of you know what I’m talking about. I was also looking to do a clean out of food in the house. So here is what I came up with

I took our last sweet potato and sliced it. Laid it on a baking sheet. Drizzled with a little Olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. I baked at 400 for 15-20 mins until tented.

While the sweet potatoes were in the oven cooking, I took our last ear of corn. Notice how I keep saying our last? It really is a clean out day. Cut all the kernels off slices up half a jalapeño and sautéed over medium heat until just barely cooked through.

I took a can of tuna placed in a bowl and separated the meat up with a fork.

I had leftover black beans with taco seasoning, about 1/2 cup leftover. I added those and half an avocado cubed, the corn with the jalapeño to the tuna. I then added a few shakes of the Seasons habanero agave vinegar, a touch of salt a crack of pepper and mixed

I put two slices of sweet potato on a plate and loaded up the tuna salad on top. Cut up some cherry tomatoes a lime wedge and some cilantro on top. Very fresh and super healthy.
