Ballet Memphis Dancer Stephanie Mei Hom's Super Food Breakfast Recipe

Put down the Pop-Tart. Loading up on healthy fuel in the morning will lead to much more productive day in the studio. Ballet Memphis dancer Stephanie Mei Hom, who loves to cook—and eat!—likes to wake up to a boost of nutrients and antioxidants. Here's one of her favorite breakfast dishes.



Super Food Breakfast


Ingredients:

1 sweet potato cubed

1/2 onion diced

1 clove garlic minced

1/2 bunch of kale chopped

Celtic sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

1 tbs olive oil
2 over-easy eggs


Directions:

1. Heat a sauté pan over med/high heat. Add olive oil, then sweet potato and onion. Cook until browned and tender-crisp.

2. Add kale and garlic. Cook for a minute or so, stirring so the garlic doesn't burn, then reduce heat to medium and add 1/4 c water and cover pan. Cook until potatoes are tender. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.

3. Top with over-easy eggs and break yolks to create a yummy sauce for the veggies.

Options: You can add crushed red pepper for a little spice. Add any fresh, local, seasonal veggies (summer squash, zucchini, broccoli, green beans, Swiss chard, spinach, potatoes). You can also do your eggs any style, the runny yolks provide good fat and protein. Just be careful with the raw egg yolk, and make sure to use good, organic, free-range eggs.
