Food: Cilantro Sweet Potato Eggs.

I decided to eat a little bit healthier in 2012…in my head. I haven’t told anyone yet.

Focusing more on healthier breakfasts. I love bagels loaded with cream cheese. Actually any bread product slathered in butter or some form of cheese.

Those bread products aren’t really getting me going in the mornings…and they aren’t helping my mid-section either.

So in an effort to start my day off on the right foot…I added sweet potatoes!

This combination is worth a try. Sweetness from the potato, spice of the cilantro, creamy eggs, earthy mushrooms and just plain delicious gouda cheese…

If I had spinach, I would have added it to the eggs too. Next time.

Yes, I ate everything on the plate.

Just ignore that english muffin. It was for the photo shoot, Folks. Purely, used as a prop.
