Put a Spin on Breakfast with My Loaded Sweet Potato Recipe | Farm Foodie Fitness

photo (29)I’m not a breakfast person, at all! My husband thinks I’m crazy and I can guarantee once a week I’ll be asked “how do you not like breakfast foods ?” Don’t get me wrong I do like breakfast and I eat it everyday. It’s the most important meal of the day, it sets your glycemic levels, the amount of food you intake, and even helps control your cravings for the day.

But you can keep your bagels, waffles, french toast, omelettes, and cereal. The mornings are when I crave my heavier and more savory foods! I want something to fill me up so I’m not running to the refrigerator an hour later which seems to be the case when I eat a waffle or granola in the morning. So I stick to my hard-boiled eggs, steel-cut oatmeal with all its goodies on top, smoked salmon, my quinoa harvest bowls, green juice or protein smoothies, or my loaded sweet potato recipe! Who says you can’t have something heavy and savory for breakfast that you would normally eat for dinner? It will definitely keep you from running to the vending machine or a quick trip to Starbucks for all those empty calories and artificial sweeteners! It’s loaded with protein, fiber, antioxidants, and natural sugars. (Just make sure to get pure maple syrup to avoid artificial sweeteners and chemicals.) Change up the recipe to make it your own or add some of your favorite things. It’s guaranteed to become a staple in your diet!

Ingredients:

• 1 medium organic sweet potato

• 1/4 cup walnuts

• 1/4 cup pecans or hazelnuts

• 2 tablespoons hemp seeds

• 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

• 1/4 teaspoon pure maple syrup

• pinch of Fleur de Sel sea salt
