Breakfast! Best Scrambled Eggs and Sweet Potato Hash w/ Fresh Greek Yogurt

Finally, I'm feeling clarity coming back!  I think the winter depression is lifting because The Walking Dead season premier is on tonight!!
Super excited.

I was up bright and early this morning and felt a nice big breakfast of good food would be the best start to the day.

So I put Etta James on Pandora, cranked it up and started cooking.

I made sweet potato hash first.  This is becoming easy and the same ingredients are NOT required each time.  Have sweet potato?  Have onion?  Have some other veggies to stir fry?  BAM  Hash!

1-2 tbls coconut oil
1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper
1 large sweet potato
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tsp garlic powder
veggies 1/2 C to 1 Cup of whatever you have (no carrots and similar. Use broccoli, mushrooms, asparagus)
1 large onion

coconut oil - heat it in a large skillet med/high heat
peal and cut up sweet potato - remember.. not yams.  throw these in the coconut oil.
add cayenne pepper, garlic powder and salt and pepper to your liking. I like a lot of pepper.
Stir it  up.
Cut up veggies that will take longer to cook, throw them in with the potatoes. I used Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms.  Let those good a good 5-6 minutes, throw it sliced onions.  The sweeter onions are good in this too but I had a yellow one to use up.
Let it all cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are soft but not mushy.  10 or so minutes.  You want the heat higher then normal because you want the onion and other veggies to caramelize some.  This is when the flavor gets good.  Watch it so it doesn't burn.

While that was cooking I made up some yogurt.  I had bought plain Greek yogurt for making power smoothies with the Magic Bullet. I also had berries that were not going to make it another day. I thought yogurt and berries!  But I'm not a fan of eating plain yogurt. (insert sadness) Then I figured.... throw them all in the Magic Bullet and I'd have some delicious fruit yogurt like they sell in the stores.  But with out the additives or sugar!!   For sure a big winner of delicious!!

The last thing I made was simple scrambled eggs.  Simple.  But I have a Magic Bullet? I can't make this that simple. I took the eggs along with spinach, salt/pepper and a splash of unsweetened almond milk, put it all in the cup and turned it on.  Within seconds I had perfect ready to cook eggs.   Still Simple.  I cooked it in about 1/2 tbls of bacon grease just to make it extra yummy. Then I topped it with some goat cheese just because.

Bon Appetite.

PS.....I made enough of everything so I have tomorrows breakfast ready!!  Heat & Eat good food!
