Welcome to Michelles Munchies
Sweet Potato Hash
Like most people, I love to eat awesome tasting food, but, like most, I like to not hate the way I feel and look. For most of my life, I thought in order to get to reach my fitness goals I would have to eat a miserable diet of Special K and baby carrots to reach my goals, but with a lot of learning and experimentation I have learned that eating for your goals isn’t a disgusting conquest after all and that you can kinda have your cake and eat it too. I want to share my passion for cooking (and eating) healthy foods that taste good, so the plan is to do that here.
Right now, I’m going to share what I’m literally obsessed with- a sweet potato hash that I accidentally discovered on Tuesday. I don’t know why, but I’m kind of on a sweet potato kick- with only 11-15 grams of carbs per half a sweet potato, they are good for any one who keeps carbs in mind (me). Sweet potatoes have all kinds I of other health benefits too- like providing us with potassium and vitamin c. Anyways, let’s get to what’s really important here- the how to.
Ingredients: 1/2 large sweet potato
1/8 white onion
1/4 yellow pepper
2 cups spinach
2 slices bacon
2 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoons parsley
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Ok- first chop up the sweet potato (I leave the skin because I’m lazy, bit that’s up to you), the onion, the bacon and the yellow pepper and combine.
Next, heat a skillet and add in the olive oil, throw in the goods and add all the spices. Let the olive oil/spices coat all of the sweet potatoe mixture. BE REALLY CAREFUL AND MIX OFTEN OR YOU WILL BURN THIS. You’re dealing with oil, it’s fiesty.
Keep the heat high for about 1 min, then bring it down to about 4/5 and put a lid on. Check it every 30 seconds, kinda mix/shake the pan to keep the contents moving- don’t let them stay in once place too long.
Add the spinach, it will start out as a lot- it will wilt to hardly anything. Just add and mix it in.
Once you notice the sweet potatoes begin to soften and bacon cooks- probably after 5 min, you can start the eggs. In a different pan, that you coated with cooking spray, (as you keep paying attention to pan1) crack your 2 eggs and cook them sunny side up.
Put the sweet potato hash in a bowl and put your eggs on too. Break the yolk, mix and enjoy!
