Scrambled Egg Whites with Steamed Sweet Potato
By adding sweet potatoes as a side to your scrambled egg whites in this P90X3-inspired recipe, you add even more nutrients to your breakfast plate. Rosemary add great, fresh flavor. If you don’t have rosemary you can use any fresh herb you like; try thyme, chives, or cilantro.
Save time by making this breakfast with leftover roasted or baked sweet potatoes. Or, instead of steaming, you can quickly cook one in a microwave while you prepare the rest of this breakfast. Pierce a sweet potato four to five times with a fork, and microwave it on high for 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Peel it and cut into pieces, or slice it in half and scoop out the center.
