“Loaded” Sweet Potatoes for Breakfast

IMG_8570.JPG

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.

Mmmm, Yummy Yogurt Bark

I don’t even know where to begin. This yogurt bark was great and easy and fun to make.

Must Have Muesli

Swiss Muesli: Three Ways

I found this idea for Apple Swiss Muesli during the hot, muggy month of August after my mom’s suggestion. It’s a breakfast that’s carried through to the cold weather, just swapping kiwi and coconut flakes for Superfood Poached Berries and hearty Pumpkin Spice Granola. (A cranberry orange zest with a dash of nutmeg may be in the future to hail the upcoming holidays.) It’s especially easy to make the night before in a Mason jar to have breakfast covered the next morning or to whisk away with you on your commute. This version of muesli is so easy to make and experiment with toppings to make your perfect breakfast.
