One of the biggest struggles while doing the Whole 30 was weekday breakfasts.
Maybe you struggle with that too, regardless if you’re on the Whole 30 or not?
Weekday breakfasts can be such a drag. If you’re anything like me you’re rolling out of bed and literally getting ready as fast as humanly possible. Which
doesn’t always never includes making an actual breakfast.
I’m more of a breakfast-on-the-go kind of lady during the week.
But there’s hope for the Whole 30 breakfast, or for weekday breakfasts in general (and obviously rockstar breakfast on the weekend).
Make Southwest Cauliflower Sweet Potato Hash over the weekend and it reheats beautifully throughout the week. Yes, I’ve even fried up a few eggs (a little undercooked) and tossed them in with the leftover hash; reheating was a breeze and the eggs were totally fine.
For the egg record, if you don’t believe me, I’m super weird about eggs and they were totally cool.
Here are the goods!
