Eggs with Sweet Potato Hash

Eggs with Sweet Potato Hash

Bored with your breakfast routine? Switch things up with these over easy eggs & sweet potato hash! Okay, it’s not really a hash, but I couldn’t think of a simpler way to say “eggs and Brussels sprouts and sweet potato in a bowl”.

This recipe is inspired by the recipes in the book Beyond the Pill. This book is where I first learned of all of the amazing health benefits of Brussels sprouts (and other Cruciferous vegetables). But, it also fits in super perfectly as a pre-workout or post-workout meal with 80 Day Obsession, the timed workout & nutrition plan that I use to tone up and lean out.

Now, this might sound like a weird combo to you, especially if you’re not used to eating veggies with your brekkie, but hear me out - the combo of tangy apple cider vinegar on the sweet potato and sautéed shredded Brussels sprouts with an ooey, gooey, runny yolk is AMAZING. Trust me. I used to be the kid who never let her food touch. Look at me now… :P

Southwest Scramble

Southwest Scramble

I am doing 80 Day Obsession again, which is a combined fitness & nutrition program. It requires timed eating of different food groups. This Southwest Scramble makes a GREAT pre-workout and/or post-workout meal on the program! It also is freaking delicious and a great healthy breakfast option even if you are not following a timed nutrition program. I love that, with minimal meal prep, this recipe is so easy to make, even if you’re getting up SUPER early to eat and workout before work, like me! It only takes ten minutes or less.

Seasoned Chicken Meal Prep

Seasoned Chicken Meal Prep

This might look like breaded chicken tenders, but don’t be fooled! It’s an awesome combo of spices that makes any protein delectable. In this recipe, I use it for a chicken tender meal prep meal, but I sometimes use it on pork tenderloin! My husband is not a fan of pork (or really chicken, for that matter) but when I use this combo of spices, or a similar variation, he is excited for dinner! Meal prep has really been a game changer for me when it comes to weight loss. I’m a teacher, so having lunch ready to grab and go really saves me time in the morning! I’m way less likely to eat unhealthy junk when I meal prep :)

Blackened Tilapia

This recipe has become a weekly staple in our house lately. It’s based off a recipe I found online, but both my husband and I agreed that it needed some sort of cream sauce to really work. So together, he and I created a lime crema cucumber topping (made with Greek yogurt!) to bump up the deliciousness of this awesome blackened tilapia. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
 Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

2 tilapia fillets
2 tsp olive oil
½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp salt
⅛ tsp pepper
1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 cup diced cucumber
1 tsp finely minced jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed
1 tsp cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Prepare the lime crema cucumber topping: add the Greek yogurt, lime juice, cucumber, jalapeño, and cilantro into a medium bowl. Stir together. Set aside in the fridge while preparing the fish.

  2. Stir the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl to make the blackening seasoning.

  3. Lay out your tilapia fillets on a plate and season each side with approximately 1 teaspoon of blackening seasoning. Rub the seasoning around with your hands so that it evenly coats both sides of each fish.

  4. Heat a pan over medium-high heat with 2 teaspoons of olive oil

  5. When the pan is hot, add your fish. Let it cook until both sides are blackened and the fish is cooked through.

  6. Place your fillets on serving plates (over brown rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice is a great option!) and top each fillet with about 1/3-1/2 of the lime crema cucumber mixture. Sprinkle with additional cilantro.

Makes 2 servings.

Portion Fix Containers: 1 red, 1/2 green, & 2 tsp. (& 1 additional yellow/green if serving over rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, etc.)
