I made a little something strange for dinner tonight.
It’s actually something I’ve been thinking of making for a quick breakfast but I decided to try it out tonight since Mr. Won’t Run was working. A sweet potato scramble (Koko was really hoping I’d drop some):
But since I need a quick breakfast option if I’m going to eat anything in the morning I figured out how to make it in the microwave in less than five minutes!
I bought two huge sweet potatoes the other day, diced them both up and wound up with almost eight cups! I left the skin on – partly because I’ve heard there are nutrients in it, and partly because I just didn’t feel like peeling.
I put a cup of diced sweet potato in a bowl with one Tablespoon of water and then microwaved for two minutes which turned out to be a perfect amount of time. I scrambled up two eggs and mixed them into the potatoes and then microwaved for another 90 seconds. I feel like they overcooked a little so next time I’ll check it at 60 seconds.
I spiced it up with some Tapatio and that was that!
I’ve seen others talk about sweet versions with butter and brown sugar, a granola crumble type topping, maybe some nut butter and/or coconut butter, and I’m sure I’ll try a variety of those. I love sweet potatoes and they seem like a viable option for a healthy breakfast.
According to North Carolina Sweet Potatoes, one medium potato has 103 calories, 0g Fat, 24g Carbs, and 4g Fiber. It’s also extremely high in Vitamin A which is good for your eyes, your reproductive and immune systems, and you skin. And if I’m being honest, a vain benefit like good skin and less wrinkles will get me every single time!
So tell me, do you have a good go-to resource for in depth vitamin info?
I wanted to include more legitimate info here on Vitamin A but couldn’t find the type of resource I wanted.
I did have another good, quick, to-go type breakfast this morning that I didn’t even have to make myself. My work friend, Brooke, commented on Sunday’s post with a link to some overnight oats and today she brought me one and it was delicious!! Those will definitely be making an appearance in between the sweet potatoes!
Can’t believe I’ve made it to March 5th! See you tomorrow
