Eggs in a Sweet Potato Noodle Nest
Breakfast is the arguably the most important meal of the day for children going back to school. Eating a breakfast that is rich in protein, healthy fat and complex carbs will help to keep kids full and focused throughout the morning.
Protein and healthy fat are two nutrients that help promote satiety and nourish cells. Complex carbohydrates are needed to fuel our brains.
In this recipe, the breakdown of nutrients are as follows: Protein (egg), healthy fat (organic basting oil, however an even better option would be olive oil), and complex carb (sweet potato noodles).
Not only do the red and green peppers add a bit of fiber to this recipe, but they add a pop of color to make this dish, appealing to kids of all ages!
