|Sweet Potato & Kale Eggy Muffin Cups|
"Breakfasts on-the-go": the black hole for many of my busy clients who are in search of healthier options.
Though I'd love for each client...each person..to find time to sit, smell, eat, relish their food, I understand that it's not always practical. However, fast-food chains are a nutrition wasteland, and you'll do yourself more harm than good trying to digest their rubbery eggs, oil-caked hashbrowns and syrupy sweet parfaits and smoothies.
Instead, make these amazingly delicious muffin cups!
A few days ago, I started a real-food cleanse, hosted by a fellow NGI graduate here in Nashville, Marnie Reasor of Resplendent Healing. Marnie's cleanse uses allergy-friendly, whole-foods recipes plus a few supplements to get things working at peak condition again. It's a spring cleaning packed with ample, chewable food, nothing extreme and nothing liquid-only. So far, I am enjoying an excuse to tidy up my own diet in places I might not be as strong (peanut butter, I'm looking at you).
When all is said and done, I will share more with y'all. But for now, I'll leave you with this awesome teaser recipe, that was inspired by something in our Cleanse Cookbook. The original creator is Chef Shane Kelly, another chef-colleague that I greatly admire. This recipe is infinitely customizable, but I just happen to have a thing for sweet potatoes + kale + smoked paprika.
These little eggy cups are the answer to your "breakfast on the go" prayers. Two of them tucked neatly into a little (preferably glass) tupperware container is a perfect amount of protein, fiber and nutrients to start the day with steady blood sugar levels. And speaking of sugar, these have been a nice change from the fruit-focused breakfasts I usually make.
Make these with your children, friends, husband or self and feel great about starting your day on a balanced foot for the week!
