1, 2, 3 foods!

With a newborn at home it is rather challenging to make meals.  I am all about making something quickly, hoping it is as nutritious as can be and gobbling it down in light speed.  I wanted to share with you two of my new go to meals/sides.  The first one is an easy sweet potato mash.

I simply wash sweet potatoes (I usually make 4 medium size), poke holes in them with a fork, place them in the microwave for 20 minutes (or until soft), peel the skin, mash the sweet potatoes in a bowl with a fork, add 1 tbsp of butter for each sweet potato I bake, whip it all up with the fork and ENJOY!  An easy side that leaves me so satisfied I do not crave dessert, #winning!  Next up is a breakfast dish!

First you chop bell peppers [You can use any color, I had a 3 pack – red, orange, and yellow – from Costco, so each day I got to choose a new color!] .  The second step is similar to the first; slice tomatoes [I bought a variety pack from Costco of mini tomatoes ranging in color from dark red to red to yellow.]  Next, I sauteed the peppers in olive oil (lightly coat the pan) for 5-10 min (until starting to slightly turn golden on the outside) on medium heat.  Then, I added in the tomatoes and continued to cook until the bell peppers were soft and the tomatoes had a “stewed” appearance.  After the veggies were cooked I added in about 1/3 a carton of Kirkland (Costco brand) egg whites.  I cooked until the egg whites were finished.  Finally, I poured out a mini 100 cal guacamole pack (purchased at Costco) on the side to use as a dipping sauce!  Below are pictures of the egg white containers & the mini guac packs… great purchases when you go for a Costco haul!!!

Hopefully you can find the above food on your plate in the morning!!

NOMaste!
