Sweet Potato and Brussel Sprouts Hash
One of my favorite make a head breakfasts is a hash. I make a big batch on Sunday, enough to last me 3 or 4 mornings then all I have to do is top with eggs and I have a delicious healthy breakfast to start my day. Recently I made a Sweet Potato and Brussel Sprouts Hash using left over vegetables from dinner the night before, I added my homemade Chicken Apple Sausages as well as more vegetables and topped with a crispy fried egg for an easy breakfast. Make ahead breakfasts are an easy way for me to meal plan, especially in the morning when my Psoriatic Arthritis is hurting badly and I can barely move, I just pop a pre-portioned breakfast into the microwave and relax until my medication takes effect and I can continue with my day. I am a morning person but sometimes the pain is just too much. I’ve learned not to push myself and do what I can the night before to assure an easier start the next day. It’s these new little things I do for myself that keep my mental energy up.
