Bacon Kale & Sweet Potato Hash: a sweet and savory one skillet breakfast packed with protein, fiber, and tons of flavor. Low Fodmap & Whole 30 Approved
How’s your first week of the new year been so far? I’ve noticed quite a few people have started a Whole 30 this month to start off the year on a fresh foot. If you’re wondering what the heck a Whole 30 is, I’ll direct you over to this website for official rules, but basically it’s 30 days of clean eating: no sugars (including natural sweeteners), grains, legumes, dairy, processed foods, etc. Crazy, huh?
To the folks who have the capacity to make it through 30 days I applaud you and I’m completely and utterly jealous of your willpower. I’ve made it through a Whole 30 Minutes on several occasions before deciding that I most definitely needed some cheese in my life. Stat! I won’t even be thinking about anything sweet, but the moment I’m not allowed to have any I’ll be craving cookie dough like you wouldn’t believe.
My discipline when it comes to food is weak. I accept that and I’m working on it.
On the bright side, my fondness for sweets in no ways detracts from my love of fresh and wholesome vegetables. Balance, right? I get the same excitement walking up and down the produce aisles of a grocery store coming up with recipes for the upcoming week that I used get walking up and down the cereal isle as a kid. ~Maturity~
And as much as I am a sucker for things like french toast, on a day to day basis I’ll take a savory start to my day over anything else. Enter: Bacon Kale & Sweet Potato Hash
Simple, straight forward, and full of flavor. Did I mention yet that it’s essentially made with five ingredients? Bacon, kale, sweet potatoes, sweet peppers, and eggs. It just goes to show that wholesome, hearty meals don’t need to take a lot of effort or a long list of ingredients. That being said, making a hash brown breakfast is one of my favorite ways to clear out the left over bits and pieces of food in the fridge, so by all means go to town and throw in anything else you’d think would be nice.
That all being said, if you are completing a Whole 30 then please allow me to offer up another recipe to keep in your arsenal. If you’re like me and you’re not yet at a point where you’re mentally capable of completing a Whole 30 or you just don’t want to because chocolate, then I’d still recommend giving this a try because you don’t need to be on a diet to enjoy food that rules.
