Hubby's Favorite Post-Gym Meal

Normally we hit the gym in the morning between breakfast and lunch.  It's nice being able to set your own schedule!  For several reasons, we eat our largest meal at lunch.  For dinner we have a protein/veggie shake.

Super Charged Post-Gym Meal
for 2 (hubby gets a larger portion)

8 eggs
1 sweet potato or red potato, 
cubed and boiled for 2 minutes
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper
cheese (optional)
whole wheat toast or Bagel

Start potatoes first since they take the longest.  Once potatoes are boiled, cook in a skillet with olive oil, salt and pepper until browned.
While your potatoes are cooking, scramble eggs (or poach).
Once everything is ready, plate your food and lightly sprinkle cheese over eggs.

This meal is a great source of protein and healthy fats.  I normally use sweet potatoes but  my husband really likes red potatoes.

Happy Sunday!  Enjoy this meatless meal tomorrow for Meatless on Monday!

  6. I never think of using sweet potatoes instead of white ones. They are so much better for you.
