I still went to the gym and did my first ever skip fit. What a great cardiovascular workout. I loved it and will be trying to catch that class whenever I can. Did you know that a 155 lb woman can burn between 563 and 844 calories by skipping for one hour (that sold me on this class!!).
My absolutely most favourite meal of the week is Sunday breakfast. Sunday is the one day a week that I usually skip a green smoothie and go with something more traditional. Since we ended being home with nothing to do,
Are you a homefry lover?? We are. I love going out for breakfast and ordering a big mound of greasy homefries that I can smother in ketchup and salt. But, since I am trying out some healthy alternatives and I have been totally digging sweet potatoes lately, I thought I'd switch it up and make some sweet potato homefries for a change.
I made them exactly as I would if I were whipping up homefries with regular potatoes and they turned out great!
Sweet Potato Homefries
3 medium sized sweet potatoes
1 sweet onion
1 1/2 tbsp Earth Balance (butter would work)
salt & pepper to taste
I love recipes with 4 ingredients!!
Peel and dice the sweet potatoes and onion.
Steam your sweet potatoes for just a few minutes until they are fork tender. I have a microwave steamer that is so quick and convenient for a meal like this.
Meanwhile, melt the Earth Balance (or butter) in a medium sized frying pan on medium heat. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and cook for approximately 5 minutes.
Keep in mind that I love carmelized onions (today they got quite dark while I was getting everything else ready). You can adjust your cooking times to suit your preferences on how crispy you like your homefries.
Add the sweet potatoes and continue to cook over medium heat for another 10 minutes.
Add additional salt & pepper according to your taste preferences and serve immediately.
I could have eaten this whole bowl myself. They were sooo tasty!
These are a fantastic side to all of your favourite breakfasts and they are so easy to whip up.
Derek's Plate (check out the dessert - at least I was able to sneak some fruit in there)
Andrea's Plate (I would love the same dessert, but I was strong today)
What great fuel to get us through our day. I was full of energy and pizzazz when I got to skip fit!
