You Crazy Paleos!

Yesterday I did a lot of research on eating Paleo, and I have to admit, I quickly became intrigued in the Paleo lifestyle. After scouring blogs for recipes, advice, and the benefits associated with eating clean, I decided I was going to give it a go with a few tweaks.

Since I’m obsessed with my Chobani, that is one thing I refuse to give up. No way, can’t take the ooey goodness of the ‘bani away from me.

Gimme That Chobani!

I also don’t plan on stressing too much if I’m out-of-town or at an event and I’m not able to eat strictly Paleo. Of course I will do my best to stick to the guidelines, but it’s not worth stressing over something that you might not be able to control. Although, I am one of those people who always packs safety snacks in case I get hungry. I’ve been known to randomly pull a banana out of my purse. 😛

You can also bet that I plan on having a few more vanilla soft serves with rainbow jimmies before summer is over. Sue me.

Since I started today with a healthy mindset, and knew I wasn’t allowed to eat my go-to breakfast of Quaker’s Banana Bread oatmeal (sad), I made this delicious breakfast after my morning workout instead. I decided to revamp my typical scrambled eggs with sweet potatoes, spinach, and some of the leftover spaghetti squash I had in my fridge.

It’s a Sweet Potato Morning

I have to say, this was absolutely delicious and the sweet potatoes stole the show. Next time I plan on adding a little more cinnamon to the potatoes. This might just be a breakfast staple.

Sweet Potato Scramble

  • Half a sweet potato, diced
  • 1 egg and 2 egg whites
  • Spinach, as much as you want
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Cinnamon

1. Peel the skin off of the sweet potato, poke holes with a knife in the potato, and microwave for 7 minutes

2. Spray a pan and while letting it warm up, cut your sweet potato in half, dice into cubes and sprinkle a little cinnamon on the cubes

3. When warm, let your sweet potatoes cook for a minute, then add your egg mixture, spinach and spaghetti squash

4. When it looks perfect, gobble it up!

 Last but not least, my morning workout!

Morning Workout

  • 3 mile run – DEATH
  • Stretching
  • 50 crunches, 50 side-to-side crunches
  • 25 reverse crunches
  • 2 sets of 13 squats with shoulder press, 8 lb. dumbbells

That was it! Short but effective.
