Ham, Apple & Sweet Potato Scramble


If you’re like me, you’re always looking for a way to add a little extra pizzazz to a pan full of plain old scrambled eggs…

whole30 compliant recipe markFor me, that means paleo hash! I can’t get enough of the stuff! My favorite part of the deal is hash is perfect for any meal of the day…and you can always load it up with great flavors that will make your hash special every time.

Try this one and I bet you’ll be wishing you doubled the recipe!

Just imagine these flavors together: ham, sweet potatoes, and fresh, tart apples. Yummy!

But that’s not all…I added cinnamon, spice and everything nice to really push this one over the top…you’re going to love how all the different flavors come together in this one.

The longer I’m paleo, the more I realize that delicious, healthy meals don’t need to be complicated. This one’s super-easy. 

And when you use fresh, good quality ingredients, you’re pretty much guaranteed a successful dish.

You know, since switching to the paleo diet I can actually taste the yummy goodness in real food these days. It’s amazing how our taste buds become more attuned to the good stuff. I had a bite of chocolate cake at work this week. It was so sweet it almost made my teeth hurt. Not saying I don’t like sweets…now I just don’t see the need for them most of the time. You’ve probably noticed the same thing since starting your paleo lifestyle!

Real food just tastes better. And you can practically feel your body screaming with happiness…it makes it easy to never look back at wheat and processed foods again.

This recipe is a perfect example of great tasting paleo and gluten-free food made simple. Even non-paleoers will love it. And you can make it with or without eggs – it’s awesome either way.

Cook up this recipe and let your body do its own little happy dance. 🙂

    Looks delicious! Can’t wait to try it out. 🙂 Does it do well eating days later? Meaning can I make a bigger batch and have it in the fridge and heat up in the microwave when I’m going to eat it?
