Pepper Mix!

Here is the recipe from the pepper mix that Kaylee Griffin brought to the nutrition seminar.

1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 yellow onion
2-3 small/medium sweet potatoes
Handful of cherry tomatoes
2-3 slices of bacon
2 tablespoons coconut oil or evoo

** She uses Flavor God seasoning, but use whatever you like:
1 TBSP Flavor God everything
1 TBSP Flavor God everything spicy
1 TBSP Flavor God honey bbq
Couple pinches of dried jalapeno

Cut up everything, mix with oil and seasoning. Put on a cookie sheet and roast @375 for about 30-45 minutes or until sweet potato is cooked to your liking.

**Pictured is a variation by Kaylee with purple sweet potatoes and sausage instead of bacon. Count 1/2 cup and 1 carb block

Breakfast Casserole

12 eggs •12 blocks protein
10 oz sausage • 5 blocks protein
5oz ham • 5 blocks protein

2 cups spinach • 1 block carbs
1/2 cup onions • 1 block carbs
1 yam/sweet potato • 3 blocks carbs
9g green chilis • 1 block carbs

1/4 cup milk • this becomes so small block wise that I didn't count it. You can eliminate.  I just add a splash to help the eggs bake better.

• Heat oven to 400°. Peel and cube yam. Toss in coconut oil, sprinkle with salt. Bake on baking sheet for 20-25 minutes.
• Cook sausage and diced onion in pan until no pink remains in meat.
• Place sausage in greased baking pan. Add hams and ham. Add chopped spinach and chilis.
• Whisk eggs and milk (garlic optional ) and pour over pan.
•Bake 25-30 minutes @400°.

Divide into portions. Add extra carbs and fat. You can easily up or down the protein to fit your blocks or switch out meats and carbs to your liking! Keep in the fridge for an easy breakfast.
