Sweet Potato Hash & Eggs
I'm slowly but surely getting the blog section of my website up and running! The first thing I had to post is the recipe to my Sweet Potato Hash & Eggs, that I posted on Instagram a few weeks ago. I wasn't really sure what to name this dish, i thought that sweet potato hash with eggs, tomatoes, spinach, avocado and greek yoghurt sauce was a bit too long..... So Sweet Potato Hash & Eggs it is!
The best thing about this dish, is that you can add any veggies you like to it, there's no need to stick to the recipe. I honestly used whatever I had in the fridge at the time.
What I love about it:
- It's quick and easy to make
- It's versatile
- There are no refined carbohydrates, which means you receive a slow, sustainable release of energy throughout the day and you stay fuller for longer
- Each ingredient is nourishing your body
- It's perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
- Great combination of protein, complex carbs and healthy fats
- Super tasty! It's even husband approved :)
Lets Break It Down:
Sweet Potato: They are low GI, a complex carbohydrate and full of the antioxidant beta carotene which is the precursor to vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for eye health, skin health and the immune system.
Eggs: A fantastic source of complete protein! Eggs are full of multiple vitamins and minerals that are important for nervous system function, immunity, skin integrity and tissue repair.
Spinach: Great source of fibre to help keep your digestive system functioning on a regular basis
Tomatoes: Full of wonderful antioxidants that we all need to have on a daily basis to fight oxidative stress, which promotes disease in the body
Avocado: What's not to love about avocados? They are full of healthy monounsaturated fats which help to lower cholesterol
So here it is!
Just remember, every time you eat is an opportunity to nourish your body. So make good choices!
