I was really hungry this morning but instead of grabbing a frozen waffle with peanut butter or yogurt I whipped up this beauty for that Julia enjoyed as well. I hope you give this a try.
5 eggs beaten well
1/4 to 1/2 diced red pepper into bite size pieces
1/4 cup of diced zucchini into bite size pieces
1/8 cup of shredded sweet potatoes

In a ovenproof 8 in skillet drizzle olive oil in pan and put sausage, pepper, and zucchini on medium heat. Let cook until veggies are tender. Add Sweet Potato with a little more oilve oil and garlic powder, salt, and any other seasonings to taste. Stir veggies, once potatoes are almost done. Turn down heat to low and add eggs. Run a spatula around the pan then top with pads of thin cut butter, about 1 T. Cook 14-18 min. However you prefer your eggs
I wanted something filling but easy to put together this morning before we started school. So this is what I come up with. Lets get cooking.
Im having some good friends over for dinner tonight, but didn't want a hard menu. So I used my slow cookers and got prepping.
1 large sirloin tip roast seasoned with house seasoning (onion powder, garlic powder, coarse salt and black pepper) and seared on both sides
1/2 bag of baby carrots
Almost a box of beef broth
1 can cream of mushroom
After the beef is seared add carrots. Pour beef broth half way up the roast, then add water until its almost covered leaving the top
uncovered. Top with cream of mushroom soup spreading it evenly. Then add pepper to taste.
Cook on low for at least 7 hours. Shred and serve.
Slow cooker baked sweet potatoes
Mac n cheese( yes velvetta is helping out😋)

I stuffed mine into a bakes sweet potato. Great as a sandwich too.
I was getting hungry already around 10:00 this morning. So I went to the pantry for a snack. I could grab a cookie, dried fruit, or cut up a apple but I need something to fill me up so I wouldnt cave in later and indulge in junk food. So I came up with a Sandwich twist Here's how I came up with it.
1 sweet potato cooked and split down the middle. (I some leftover from dinner, and warmed it in the microwave)
2-3 slices of deli meat diced (chipotle chicken was nice)
BBQ sauce of choice, only a squirt
Sprinkle of mozzarella cheese or whatever you have on hand; If you can't handle dairy omit it.
While the potato is hot mix in the deli meat, sauce, and cheese if using.
Hope you enjoy. I did
Thanks for reading,
I am on the path of new ways to get good nutrition into my body without eating salads all the time. So when I came across this soup that contained clean ingredients I had to give it a try. The ginger gives it a nice kick while the carrot is sweet and the coconut is creamy. For lunch I just poured it into a coffee mug to warm through but for dinner I would serve grilled shrimp on top and a big spinach and almond salad. I hope you will give this a try. I will let you know if the Fam likes it later on.
