Sweet Potato and Greens


I started having a savory veggie based “breakfast” (break my fast) lately because i know true hunger set in if I’m willing to eat Veggies.

Here’s just a simple sweet potato and greens meal.

I bake the sweet potato before I’m feeling hungry so its ready when i am. You can also batch bake some ahead of time and keep in fridge for a couple days or freeze them! Then just heat and eat.

The sweet potatoes in the pictures are the japanese kind with the lighter flesh. They are less sweet and more starchy. But still micronutrient dense.
