I don’t usually eat right when I get up, unless I know I’m going to have a long day ahead. I usually find that when eat first thing in the morning, I’m hungrier, unless I eat a lot of protein. That’s how this recipe came to be. It’s full of protein, with some complex carbs thrown in for energy. It’s the kind of breakfast that will keep you going for hours.
Even for a healthy breakfast, I still want something that tastes good. The easiest way to do that is with a good seasoning, and the Sayulita Steak and Veg is one of my favorites. It’s got lots of garlic flavor, and my personal favorite — tons of black pepper. It’s a hearty blend that is robust and spicy, and is perfect for jazzing up what might otherwise be a boring breakfast. With a good dose of Colima Sea Salt, it’s all the seasoning you need. It’s especially good with sweet potatoes, as the heat contrasts nicely with the sweetness. Grating the potatoes help them cook super fast, which on a busy morning is a necessity. All in all, if you start your day with this, it will end up a good day.
