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!!
