Whole30 Day 2 - Breakfast

I slept a little better last night than the night before. I woke up without a backache which was nice and the headache is gone. I am feeling depressed though. I think I am in mourning or something. So far I have yet to be WOW'd by any of the food I am eating. it's all pretty bland and boring to me. Part of that is I don't really know how to cook, not off the top of my head, I need recipes and it's really hard finding Whole30 recipes for what I want to make or that aren't super involved looking. I don't know, I am just feeling down today.

So breakfast today is Sweet potato sausage hash.
1 lb ground pork sausage (We like Isernio’s mild italian)
3 sweet potatoes, grated
3 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp cinnamon (or more if it is to your liking)

Brown the sausage in a large skillet.
Add the coconut oil and shredded sweet potatoes to the cooked sausage.
Stirring often, let the potatoes cook until they are soft, about 7 minutes.
Add cinnamon and serve.

It's alright. I mean, it's decent, something feels off about it. It may be the coconut oil, it's my first time using it. Brennan seems to love this dish, he's gobbling it up, even the meat! Kyler would not eat any and Jackson is mostly just picking at it saying he wished it was just a bowl of sausage.

I am feeling really out of my element here. But don't get me wrong, I may be feeling down about the cooking, but I am not going to stop. I want to feel better and look better. The cooking ability will come with time and experience. I just need to remember that.

  1. I think I would have served the sausage and sweet potato separately, but I don't tend to like things served in a huge mash-up, just my taste.
