Once A Food Blogger Always A Food Blogger?

I am a believer in the sweet potato, I believe that they make you pretty. It’s more than a belief actually, it’s like a founding principle of my life.

Sometime around Christmas we had leftover grated raw sweet potato in the fridge. Don’t ask why because I have no freaking idea. About the same time I was toying with the idea of going totally paleo, or at least trying out a new paleo cookbook.

I’m not great at getting out of bed. Fine, the truth is I hate getting out of bed. So I usually miss breakfast and then have to race like a crazy woman to get the kids out the door to school. It’s a long drive to school and back and skipping breakfast ruins my mood for the whole day.

In a stroke of genius one morning I sautéed up a handful of the sweet potato in some butter. Mixed in 2 eggs and cooked it up omelette style. When it was cooked through, I do not support runny eggs, I added some goat cheese and flipped that sucker over. Super delicious, fast and it filled me up. I was so happy I’ve had it nearly everyday since.

Except the weekends, there’s no rush for school on those days and breakfast is later so I can usually get up for it. Truthfully I think it’s the race to school that keeps me in bed. I willingly signed up for parenting but I did not sign anything that said I had to get up for school September through June.





  1. That sounds delicious! I eat omelets nearly every day for lunch. Mmm. Omelets. I haven’t done one with sweet potato though. I’m going to have to try it!

    I’ve adopted a semi-paleo diet … it’s all about finding something that works, right? So far, so good, it seems to be working great for me. :)

    A paleo friend/pimp of mine suggested a banana/egg pancake. Simple to make and apparently super tasty. I’m thinking it’ll be a good weekender thing.

    • I’ve also made them in muffin tins, jammed in the SP and cheese, then poured the eggs overtop. Baked at 350 for 20 or so minutes. Simple to heat up as a snack.

      I’m really liking practical paleo, I found it at Costco. Great muffin and pancake recipes.

  2. That looks super awesome. I’m going to try it.

  3. Kristin, I want to lick the screen. YUM, that looks so good!

  4. Yum! My new omelett cooking skills will have to try this out. Sweet potatoes are yummy.
