Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I started a Whole 30 last week.  Today makes day 9 and I’m actually enjoying the challenge it provides.  (Does this make me crazy?)  Also, I know that I may not be saying the same thing on day 25 but you never know.   Either way, I’m really enjoying that it’s forcing me to cook more and find healthier options.  I was thinking about meals I could make with what I already had and I remember a meal I had with my best friend.  She uses a food service from time to time since her husband travels a lot and she graciously shares with me whenever she can.  (Love her!)  One time we shared a sweet potato breakfast bowl and I remembered how yummy it was.  I thought I’d take a stab at making one myself.

My first try, while very good, wasn’t really up to par with the fancy food service one.  Now breakfast hash 2.0….well here she is!Continue reading

Today I’d like to introduce you to my new best friend in my kitchen.  Meet my waffle iron!

I have lovingly named him Joey, as in Joey Tribbiani from “Friends”.  He’s my favorite thing to cook with right now and I have made so much more than just waffles in this thing.  You know all those “Waffle Iron Hacks” videos you see?  Yeah, those are awesome!

Anyway, today I’m actually sharing a waffle recipe I whipped up the other day that made a delicious dessert and would also make a yummy, filling breakfast as well.

Ingredients:
Waffle Mix (plus ingredients needed on the box)
1 Apple (diced)
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1. Start with your waffle mix and prepare as directed.  I like using THIS brand because you only need water and I don’t have to worry about under cooking the batter.
2. Add in the apples, vanilla, and cinnamon and mix well.
3. Pour into the iron and serve warm with your favor waffle toppings.

I served mine with caramel ice cream because YUM!
XO, Kelly

Nowadays it seems like avocado toast is all the rage, especially with health kicks popping up daily.  And honestly, I can’t complain because it’s delicious!  The other day, since I’m craving hispanic flavors, I thought I’d try to spice up my breakfast.  The result was so good that I just had to share it!

Ingredients: 2 Slices of Bread, Avocado, Garlic Salt, Chili Powder, Liquid Egg Whites, Tomato

While your bread is toasting, smash up half of a ripe avocado with a fork.  Sprinkle in a couple pinches of garlic salt and as much chili power as you’d like.  If you don’t like spicy, use less.  This will give good flavor without any spiciness.  Mix up the avocado smash well and spread evenly between the two pieces of toast.

Cook your egg white.  I cook mine in the microwave.  Yup, you read that right, the microwave!  Spray a microwave safe bowl (I use a piece of tupperware) with cooking spray and pour in your egg whites.  For each egg white, cook 30 seconds.  I make 2 egg whites (1/4 cup of the liquid) and it cooks in 1 minute perfectly.  Place the egg white on top of the avocado spread and finish it off with a slice of tomato.

So yummy, filling, and very good for you!
XO, Kelly
