Sweet Potato Breakfast Scramble

Post long run I have a hard time stomaching food sometimes, so I usually try to have an egg dish because it tends to be lighter on my stomach and still gives me an option to get in vegetables and protein with my carbohydrates.

Serves: 1-2 (usually 1 if post training)

Time: 15 minutes


  • 1/2 large sweet potato or yam (washed with skin on), diced
  • 1 shallot or 1/4 onion, diced
  • 3 mushrooms, diced
  • Handful spinach, chopped
  • Handful cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • A dash of “Everything but the Bagel” Spice
  • 3 eggs
  • Optional: 2 Tbsp mozzarella cheese


In a non-stick pan (I use a scan pan) over medium heat with avocado oil, saute the sweet potato for 5-10 minutes with a lid on, toss in the onions and cook for another 3 minutes, add the mushroom, spinach, and cilantro and saute for another minute. Crack in 3 eggs and scramble around with the spatula and toss in seasoning (this makes less dishes dirty as opposed to whisking the eggs in a bowl first, but you can do that as well). Top with salsa, cheese, avocado, or hot sauce whatever you prefer!
