In the quest to eat healthy, whole foods, figuring out what to eat for breakfast can sometimes trip us up. We want something quick and easy but don't want to grab a doughnut or cheese croissant on the way to work every day.

In the mornings before rushing off to start our day, though, we don't always have time to whip up a nice veggie omelette to keep us full and nourished.

So where is the middle ground? 

The key to an awesome, weekday breakfast involves the tiniest bit of meal prepping to set you up for the whole week. I've been loving this Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash lately. I make this on a Sunday, store it and heat it up in the mornings. Sometimes I'll even fry and egg and have that on top if I have time. Feel free to mix it up to your liking!

I dare say it's even delicious/impressive enough to make for a weekend brunch with pals! I hope you love it!


Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash



1 sweet potato, chopped into 1 inch cubes

2-3 links organic Italian sausage or breakfast sausage patty (casing removed if it's a link. Chose one without added sugar!)

2 tablespoons coconut oil 

2 large handfuls of kale, chopped

3 tablespoons water

Salt and pepper to taste



Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add coconut oil and melt.

Add the chopped sweet potatoes to the pan, stirring to brown, and sprinkle with of sea salt. Cook sweet potatoes for about 7 minutes. Cover the pan to let them soften.

When sweet potatoes are somewhat soft, break the sausage into small pieces (casing removed), add to pan and cook through.

Once the potatoes and sausage are browned, add the kale and 1 tablespoon water to the pan and toss to coat. Cover pan and allow kale to steam.

Add another tablespoon or so of water if needed. Stir together and serve hot!
