Sweet potatoes with Brussels sprouts and eggs? Mismatched, definitely.
All different kinds of colors and textured workout gear. Mismatched, definitely.
Back to what I called ‘Exhibit A’. What?!? Mixing SWEET potatoes with salty Brussels sprouts and eggs? Well, last night, after some inspiration from this recipe, my friends and I concocted this sweet potato hash. It was breakfast for dinner, more commonly known as BRINNER!
2 sweet potatoes
6 cups shredded Brussels
1/4 cup diced white onion
a bit of olive oil
eggs (depending on how many you’re serving, this was for four people)
All I did was bake the Brussels like I normally do and while that was happening I sautéed the diced onions and cubed sweet potatoes with all the salt, pepper and garlic powder. In another pan I made the eggs so it could all be served hot! I wish I could be more exact with these instructions, but let’s be real – you’re unlikely to make something healthy off this blog after my candy confession yesterday. 🙂 My credibility is shot!
But, I think I can claim some of it back with this workout I did. On to ‘Exhibit B’ – the totally random, mismatched gym outfit. Oh, please don’t think I care, I just normally have such cute running outfits (that’s part of the reason I run!! Ha!) that when I wear something so unmatched and frumpy, it’s picture worthy. Either that, or I’m still just a big narcissist who loves selfies. You can choose for yourself.
This sucker took about 46 minutes (yeah, I timed it!) and I did about 3 miles, give or take. I was beat after this.
Why is it that treadmills KICK MY BUTT but pavement does not? I don’t get it.
And finally, to wrap up this lovely Wednesday with some LOVE, I received a wonderful giveaway from Her Happy Balance (I think a lot of you know her, she’s pretty much the most fabulous girl ever!). I’ve never tried this product so when she had a giveaway I was so excited! And I won! And look at how cute she was – including a heartfelt letter and all!
People like her, and like all you out there reading, have become such an important part of my life over these past few months of blogging and I am so grateful to be a part of such a supportive, happy, REAL community of healthy living/cooking/running/exercising bloggers. 🙂
And for the record, those things are PHENOMENAL. They taste like cookies. I’m almost mad that I have a whole box of these because, as I’ve said before, I have no self control with sweets. YUM.
What’s your favorite ‘mismatched’ meal?
What’s the best kind of ‘brinner’ to you?
Do you prefer treadmills or outdoors when you run?
