Sweet Potato Egg Boat

High carb day number 2! Yeah! Sweet potato with every meal, ok not crazy have as much as you like at every meal, half a cup or 70g at each meal. I have changed my program slightly, with the help of Krista (sf_lifts on IG) and she has given me a plan.  I have 2 high carb days and 5 low carb days a week.  I am excited!!

I wanted a bit of a change from grated sweet potato hash, not that I don’t LOVE that but because I had some baked sweet potato jackets in the fridge from last night’s Turkey Twice Baked Sweet Potato and I thought I’d use them.  Turns out, they were soooooo good!  So here you go, enjoy!

 Sweet Potato Egg Boat

Sweet Potato Egg Boats

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • Diced capsicum
  • Shredded kale
  • Cut the sweet potato in half-length ways and place cut side down on a lined baking tray.  Place them in a moderated heat oven for about 20 minutes, or until they are soft (not too soft but just cooked). Take them out of the oven and scoop the insides out, place the scooped out sweet potato in a container and you can use it later (meal prep at its best!).
  • Heat the frying pan (one that has a lid on it, if you don’t have that then use the oven) to a low-medium heat.
  • Place your diced vegetables into the boat, and then crack your eggs in.
  • Cover the pan with the lid and cook until the egg is to your liking.

Love your carbs?

Yours in health

  1. I’ve gotta try this. I actually just increased my carbs as well. I am feeling super drained at crossfit and towards the end of the day. I’m not sure what’s going on… I’m hoping a little diet change will help!

      I really think that some if us just need more carbs than fat, and a few meals a day with sweet potato and I’m absolutely alert and full of energy. Hopefully getting more carbs will give you the energy you need, especially when CrossFitting and being a mum.
