Eggs and Sweet Potato Hash

Print

Vegetables and eggs always sit well with me, especially when the vegetables are cooked. This breakfast gives me a head start on my veggie count for the day, plus I get many beneficial nutrients from the eggs.

Further Food Commentary:

What a great way to start your day- with a meal rich in fiber and protein that will keep you full & satisfied. Like Sarah said, you also get a head start on your vegetable intake for the day. This egg & sweet potato hash is an excellent source of potassium (helps our muscles to move, works as an electrolyte), vitamin A (important for vision and our immune system), and vitamin C (also a key player in our immune system, as well as an antioxidant). I agree with Sarah about leaving the skin on the sweet potato- you get a lot more fiber that way! The Dietary Guidelines for Americans, released this year, have changed their recommendations on eggs & cholesterol, now stating that the current research does not show a connection between dietary intake of cholesterol and serum (blood) cholesterol levels. Cholesterol does have positive roles in our bodies, playing a role in cellular structure and our central nervous system.
