It’s been a pretty blah, boring week. Nothing of note to report on. I’ve had a headache every day and been an emotional mess thanks to my monthly friend, so I’m just hanging by a thread. My 4 mile run yesterday was my first one since my 10 mile race on Sunday and it did NOT feel good at all. I think I felt something pop in my left hip during the last 2 miles and my hip hurt the rest of the day. That trickled down to my knee and my foot so I decided to take today off and rest. I guess this is my taper? I’m planning to run tomorrow but definitely not Saturday. I’ve also been stress eating too much candy/sugar this week but the positive in that is that it is nothing compared to my old ways of stress eating! But still, I didn’t need 2 snack size dark chocolate mounds (which are amazing by the way) and a dark chocolate Reese’s before bed last night. It did taste damn good though 😉
I’ve been so lazy about dinners lately, but one delicious meal I made for dinner on Tuesday was a hit. I tried to recreate the hash I get at brunch with what I had on hand. The result was fabulous and I’ll definitely be stocking up on what I need to make this for dinner a few times a week!
Sweet Potato Hash:
- 1 sweet potato, chopped up
- Diced up onion (however much you want) & green onion/scallions
- Red bell pepper, diced up
- Whatever meat you want… I used a chicken sausage
- 1 Egg
- Hot sauce/ketchup (optional)
I sauteed the sweet potato, onion and bell pepper in coconut oil. I put the sweet potato chunks in for about 5 minutes by themselves first because they take awhile to cook. Toss them all in garlic powder and any other spice you want. Cook up the meat in a separate pan and toss in with the potatoes/onions/peppers for another minute or 2. Fry up an egg, plate the hash and throw that runny egg on top. Top with hot sauce, ketchup, whatever your heart desires!
I love hash for dinner because you can throw in whatever vegetable and protein you want on it, plus it really doesn’t take long at all. If you’re like me and love to eat breakfast for every meal, this is perfect. A regular potato works too, I just love the sweetness of a sweet potato against the salt.
What is your favorite easy dinner to make?
