Paleo Skillet Sweet Potato Egg Nests

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 sweet potato
  • oil of choice (I used coconut)
  • Salt/pepper to taste
  • added spices to taste (optional)

Instructions:

Peel sweet potato with a vegetable peeler (or julienne peeler) and place all peelings into a cast iron skillet. Top with 1/4 cup coconut oil (or oil of choice) and mix in with sweet potatoes, turning the heat to medium on the stove. Add in your spices. Cook the sweet potatoes until soft, about 10-12 minutes. Make 4 little “baskets,” and crack open an egg in each one. Cook for about 1 minute, until the white are cooked on the bottom. Take the skillet and place in the oven to Broil on high for 1-3 minutes, or until eggs have cooked to your liking. Remove from oven, and let cool for a few minutes. Use a spatula to scoop out – and Enjoy!

No-Bake Peanut Butter & Banana Energy Bites

Ingredients

➰ 1 cup of oatmeal (I used a peanut-butter & banana mix from myoatmeal)

➰ 1/3 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter)

➰ 1 tsp vanilla extract

➰ 1/3 cup hemp hearts

➰ honey/maple syrup/sweetener to taste

➰ optional add-ins/flavors: chocolate chips, cocoa, pumpkin spice, banana (dried or regular smashed), dried fruit, chia seeds, pb2, chia seeds, granola, raisins

{The original recipe calls for 1 cup coconut flakes & 1/2 cup ground flax seeds. I don’t like either, so I omitted and just added in hemp hearts, chia seeds and extra oatmeal.}

Mix all ingredients together and roll into balls. Place in fridge until firm – about 15-30 mins. Serve on game day or grab as a snack when you are hungry!

Spicy Sweet Potato Chili

One of my co workers brought in a vegetarian recipe, and i tweaked it a little bit to make it un-vegetarian 🙂 Mostly because I wanted to use my sisters grass-fed beef from her farm. Her cows are so happy! Recipe is below – it is a perfect mix of sweet & spicy!

Chili

Spicy Sweet Potato Chili

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 5 medium onions, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 lbs ground beef from pyma love farm cows
  • 3 medium/large sweet potatoes, diced
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1tsp cumin
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 jar (24 oz) mild salsa
  • 2 cans (15-19oz) black beans – use liquid (I used one can of bush’s bourbon brown sugar beans & 1 bush’s black bean fiesta)
  • Spicy Hot Sauce to Taste
  • 1/2-1 bottle of bourbon/pumkpin beer (to reach desired consistency)

Stovetop:  In 4-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until soft – about 4 minutes.  Cook beef in a separate pan & drain fat. Stir in all remaining ingredients to garlic and onion pot except black beans.  Bring to boil; reduce heat to medium-low and cook 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.  Add beans, cook 5 minutes or until heated through.

Crock Pot:  Saute onion and garlic as above. Place in crockpot. Brown ground beef, drain fat and add to crockpot. Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low setting 6-8 hours.

Can serve with cheese, tortilla chips, saltines, etc.

**Please note this recipe can be made vegetarian! Just exclude the meat 🙂
