Can you believe it’s the home stretch of my detox?

I feel so great and am really proud of myself for sticking with it.

I’ve been working on a post of my best tips for you so stay tuned for that. 🙂

Today’s healthy sweet potato hash is a special favourite of ours.

I say ‘ours’ because even though Joe is not actively participating, (and by that I mean he’s eating cheese and drinking coffee. Damn him! ) he is eating meals that I’m preparing, like the Detox Soup and the smoothies.

He’s also eating more than his share of my detox snack like this Sugar Free Granola, for instance.

Eat your cheese, buddy. 😉

But, I digress …

This particular Sweet Potato and Egg dinner or breakfast is one to remember. The beauty of it is that it can be enjoyed for any meal.

Have some time on a weekend morning and feel like a fancy breakfast? This sweet potato egg skillet is great.

Maybe it’s a cold, stark winter evening and you need some warm, comfort food to heat you up. This was the case for us and it was fabulously good.

Veggies this bright in colour can only mean good things, right?

The eggs make this dish.

We love them fried in olive oil with a touch of sea salt.

When I make my eggs I leave the yolks a little runny. As a result, you can sop it up with the sweet potatoes.

Great, filling and non-detox tasting, if you know what I mean. 😉

Day 10

lemon H2O with cayenne
green smoothie
sweet potato hash & eggs

*As always, I’m drinking at least ten cups of water/herbal teas daily

*I’m also back on grains a bit as I had brown rice in my salad. No reaction, thankfully.

As you can see that Sugar Free Banana Bread is the detox bomb! Stay tuned for that recipe on Friday.

Meanwhile, enjoy your comfort food. 🙂

  • Preheat oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment/foil
  • Toss the cubed sweet potato with 1 tablespoon of olive oil until well coated then add chili powder, cumin, cayenne, salt & pepper and stir well
  • Transfer potatoes to the lined baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes, stir the potatoes around to check for any hot spots and put back in the oven for another 15-20. Set the pan aside
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onions and peppers until soft, about 7-9 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook, stirring for another 1-2 minutes
  • Lower the heat to medium low and transfer the potatoes form the baking sheet to the skillet and stir
  • In a separate skillet, heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and fry the eggs to your liking. We preferred a slightly runny yolk
  • Plate your potato hash, sprinkle with fresh parsley and top with fried eggs

    Hey Sharon, I happened upon your detox on Pinterest a few weeks ago and was really excited to see a detox plan that let you eat food!! I don’t like to drink my meals, so this was an awesome find. I’ve tried a couple of the recipes and was surprised at how much I liked the Detox Soup and the Sugar Free Granola, but this Sweet Potato Hash recipe was A.MAZ.ING! Even my older kids liked it, which was really shocking cause it has onions in it (gasp!). I wanted to thank you for sharing this and let you know that I professed my love for it with my readers. Thanks again!

    1. Wow, Valerie. You are the best! I always love that the kids enjoy. They are the most honest. 😉 I think we are kindred food spirits because the soup, sweet hash and granola recipes were definitely my favourites from the cleanse. I’m planning a Spring time cleanse so stay tuned. 🙂

  2. I’m on day 3 of your 12 day detox. It’s been going well so far. Will it be possible for you to post all 12 days with meals/ recipes and a list of ingredients to buy? So it will make it a bit easie to shop and plan for it?
    Thank you!

    1. Hey Nat! So glad to hear things are going smoothly for you on your detox. 🙂 I’ve posted links to my recaps at the bottom of this page –> here <-- with the intro so it's all in one place. Keep going!!

  3. I love love love sweet potato hashes with eggs too! And the Mexican spices in yours? Even better! Definitely need to try that next time.

    Kudos on almost being done your detox!

    1. The spices worked so nicely with the sweet, roasted potatoes. Loved . it . Period . 😉 And hooray for finishing my cleanse! Now we can plan another lunch. 🙂

  4. Oh I’d be all over these sweet potato hash browns. I love them too! Plus, they look delicious. Sounds like you’re killing your detox! Awesome Sharon 🙂
