This clean eating loaded breakfast sweet potato is a nutrient-dense breakfast that will really fill you up!
I’m all for having a good breakfast. I think a good breakfast in the morning gets your day off to a solid start. When you have a good breakfast, you can think more clearly, focus better and get all those millions of things done that I know you have on that to-do list. I know, because I have them too. The list never ends!!
For me, breakfast was always best with a ton of protein. But then I went 100% plant based and I had to get creative. I had to find other foods that satisfied me the way meat and eggs did.
One of the best solutions so far has been sweet potatoes. Most often, I serve them with beans and even hummus. A slice of vegan cheese melted over the top is delicious too. Any of those options are a wonderful combination of flavor and fiber. The combination between the potato and the beans fills me up the way meat used to. But every once in a while, I like a treat for breakfast. Something on the sweeter side. A lot of folks like pancakes and waffles and I used to be one of them. But these days, I’m a sweet potato girl. So if I’m going to have something sweet for breakfast, I make something like this clean eating loaded breakfast sweet potato.
Now mind you, with my blood sugar, I skipped the maple syrup. The one pictured above was for Mini Chef. I made the same thing for me, just without the syrup and I found it to be a delicious and filling breakfast. And just think of all those wonderful nutrients! This is truly a superfood powerhouse type of breakfast. In fact, I ended up adding a few more blueberries because they are a low carb fruit and I love them. So I really piled them on!
And if you only have a limited kitchen available to you or don’t need to cook for a ton of people, the potatoes are totally microwavable. So this is a great breakfast for bachelors, dorm room dwellers and those who live by themselves and only need to cook for one.
If you want this on a morning when you know you’ll be rushing out the door, just make sure you bake a few sweet potatoes ahead of time. It’s the easiest, fastest breakfast I’ve encountered in a long time.
Dig in and enjoy!
