|Kale and Sweet Potato Hash with Eggs|
My Paleo Challenge is complete! Five weeks of eschewing grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, and alcohol. Okay, I slipped up once or twice; I couldn't resist the glass of wine with my Dad at dinner one night. But otherwise I was a good little cavewoman and made my Paleolithic ancestors proud. The winners of the competition will be announced this Saturday - I'm not holding my breath, and I doubt I'll win, but I WILL show up for the Paleo Potluck part of the evening!
One of the principles of the Paleo diet is eating the right nutrients at every meal: protein, fat, and slow-release carbohydrates. This is most important for breakfast, since we haven't eaten for ten our twelve hours! My two favorite breakfasts during the Challenge were a Spinach Scramble, and Kale and Sweet Potato Hash with Eggs. These were tasty, protein-laden plates that were easy to make, and easy to make ahead to save time in the morning. They're even substantial enough for a Meatless Monday meal.
