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

Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

I freaking LOVE cookie dough and, I’m not gonna lie, I have definitely gotten store-bought cookie dough with the SOLE intention of eating it raw. But, as I’ve learned more about nutrition and become more aware of the scary ingredients in processed foods, I’ve learned to steer clear of the pre-made stuff. But fear not - with four simple ingredients, you can make this sweet treat to keep in your fridge and/or freezer for a healthier option when a sugar craving hits!

Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry Muffins

These blueberry muffins have been the perfect mid-morning pick-me-up this week, exactly when I’m craving a sweet treat. This recipe is based on FIXATE’s Blueberry Maple Muffins, but I tweaked it a little to make it gluten-free and also lower the intensity of the buttermilk. I upped the amount of maple a little, but to be honest, I can’t really taste it. But that’s ok. I’m just happy to be using a natural sweetener! Blueberry season is just around the corner in NY, so save this recipe for yourself to make (and freeze!) batches of yummy muffins come August!

Spinach Artichoke Frittata

Spinach Artichoke Frittata

This recipe was hatched when I had more eggs than I knew what to do with! Haha, bad pun, I know. I’m a part of an awesome egg CSA from Ley Creek Farm in Fulton, NY, so I get a dozen farm fresh eggs each week. I literally walk past the chickens as I pick them up. It’s really cool knowing egg-zactly where my food comes from… ok, I’ll stop with the puns :P But anyways, I had a TON of eggs still left to use one week, so I decided to make a frittata. I am a BIG FAN of goat cheese and recently learned some amazing nutritional benefits of both spinach and artichokes, so I threw all of these great ingredients together to create this frittata! A frittata is basically a quiche without the crust. And I actually ended up having this (and the leftovers!) for dinner a few nights that week. The following week, I remade the dish the following week for a brunch with my girlfriends that I was hosting. It’s basically delicious any time of day!

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is a great clean eating recipe to meal prep for lunches! I make a big batch of it and my husband and I will eat it for lunch (or snacks!) all week long. I love the surprise sweetness of the dried cranberries in it. I also love the versatility of chicken salad - you can put it in a lettuce wrap, make it into a sandwich, top a salad with a scoop, or even just eat it straight out of the bowl. This is my third (I think?) recipe where I’ve made shredded chicken using my Instant Pot and, if you couldn’t tell, I’m in love. It’s an effortless way to make moist, delicious shredded chicken! (Sorry if you hate the word “moist”!)
