Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl
Ingredients for weekly prep (5 days)
1 small brown onion
3 red bell pepper, chopped
3 large sweet potato, diced in small cubes
1 zucchini, chopped
5 cups chopped kale
5 clove, minced garlic
½ tbsp cumin, paprika
2 green onions
Salt & pepper to taste
How to prep for the week:
Chop up onions, bell peppers, zucchini, and sweet potatoes.
Saute on medium until sweet potato is soft and add seasonings.
In the meantime, chop up the green onion and keep in a separate container in the fridge. Add green onions daily when you reheat your bowl.
Once sweet potatoes are soft, remove from the heat and portion the amount equally into 5 containers. Put the containers in the fridge.
When ready to eat, throw the sweet potato mixture in a pan to reheat on medium, add 2 eggs, and cook until eggs are done. I recommend cooking 2 eggs each morning to keep the bowl fresh throughout the week, instead of cooking all the eggs for the week with the sweet potatoes. Top with green onion.
Ingredients per serving
Loaf of whole/multi grain bread
1 container grape tomatoes
10 smashed hard boiled eggs
How to prep for the week
Hard boil 10 eggs. Put eggs in a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then as soon as the water is boiling, cover the pot and turn the heat off. Let the eggs sit in the hot water, covered for 9 to 12 minutes depending on how well done you prefer your eggs. Once the timer goes off, cool the eggs off in cold water then peel. Store eggs in the fridge. *Depending on how fresh the eggs store, you may have to boil your eggs for the first 3 days at the beginning of the week, then boil more mid week for the rest of the week.
Toast 2 pieces of bread daily for breakfast and mash ½ avocado on top. Top with cracked pepper and fresh tomatoes. *Avocado will not store well after a day or two, so only cut up 1 avocado at a time and store the other half in the fridge.
