Sweet Potato for Breakfast
This mornings breakfast was uncharacteristically a HOT breakfast and it was soooooo good. I microwaved a small sweet potato for 7 minutes and topped it with a sliver of sunbutter. I also microwaved one whisked egg for 60 seconds to make an “egg puff” and topped that with lots of ketchup!
The first time I ever heard of a sweet potato for breakfast, my closed little American mind thought, “What? HECK NO THATS FOR DINNER!” But as time went on I learned to appreciate real meals for breakfast as a way of getting my body ready for the day. As many of you know, I now have no limits on what types of food qualifies as breakfast, lunch, or dinner foods. I pretty much eat anything at any time of the day if I feel like it. This breakfast hit the spot and was a balanced healthy way to start my day!
Five hours, one Einstein’s Vanilla Hazelnut Coffee and piece of turkey jerky later it was finally time for lunch! Following my building a healthy salad tips, I went for the same thing I had on Monday– chicken, green beans, beets, chicory root, tomatoes, cucumber, a tiny bit of pecans and GOAT CHEESE. (I’m obsessed.) They definitely weren’t quite so generous with the cheese this time around, but then again thats probably a good thing!
I devour these salads by the way, there is nothing left except for that piece of burnt whatever bread that was they gave me to go with it.
Now it’s a super early dinner of an apple and granola bar on the way to church. Then I will hopefully make it to the gym in time to get a Bodypump stamp and squeeze in some cardio beforehand! Whew! Crazy day!
Question of the day:
Whats your favorite meal to have at a non traditional time?
Mine is definitely eggs for dinner…. in any form… egg sandwiches, quesadillas, scrambled, omelets, you name it I’d probably like it! Egg whites especially are a quick protein to easily bulk up any meal.

Like you, I’ve come to the point in my life where I will eat practically anything at any time of day. I’d have to say my favorite meals at nontraditional times would have to be leftover pizza for breakfast. And a big breakfast of scrambled eggs, pancakes and sausage for dinner. I also occasionally love a bowl of cereal for dinner.
