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.
