Did I mention I am doing the Whole 30 challenge again? Yup, that’s right! And with my new staying at home all the time lifestyle I think I’ll need to stick to it for a few more than the thirty days to feel more like myself again if you know what I mean.

    I have such a weird relationship with sweet potatoes. I LOVE them, and yet I find it hard to think of things to do with them. Consequently, I find I generally eat them in meals made by other people, or at restaurants. But I think I can definitely get on board with the whole heart breakfast idea! The almond butter is a perfect way to top it off too. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m currently on Whole30 and this is perfect. I’m so tired of eggs every day and this was perfect. Thanks for sharing.

  3. We love sweet potatoes in breakfast foods, and this recipe is fantastic. So cozy and warming, it will definitely be made again.
