What a fun way to switch up your breakfast options! I came home from a Soul Survivor class, aka a 60 min spin class, and was starving. I was tired of my usual eggs or oats for options, so I turned to sweet potatoes. Loaded with nutrients, I popped a sweet potato into the microwave, scooped out the insides and mixed them with some yogurt and protein powder (due to the post-spin nature). Drizzle it all with some nut butter, top with some bananas and sprinkle with whatever toppings — I liked nuts for a crunch and dried fruit’s texture. This Loaded Breakfast Sweet Potatoes is satisfying and a welcomed change to your breakfast routine.

- Carefully slice the sweet potato lengthwise. Pierce the inside with a fork. Place cut part face down on a plate and microwave 4-5 min until the inside is soft.
- Scoop out the sweet potato’s inside and mash in a small bowl. Mix in yogurt, protein powder (optional) and almond milk. If needed, quickly heat before spooning back into sweet potato skins.
- Top each half with banana slices. Drizzle with almond butter.
- Sprinkle with chia seeds, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon.
