When I committed to a healthy Paleo diet, I quickly realized that I needed some easy breakfast staples that would keep me satiated and energized all morning long. I found that shifting my thinking about what constitutes a healthy breakfast was critical to be successful with my weight loss goals. You’ve heard of eating breakfast for dinner, right? Why not dinner for breakfast? The meal prep that I do each week gives me a ton of options for mixing and matching for each meal so that I never get bored while also making meals quick and easy.
Sweet potatoes, and really most vegetables, for that matter, may not be the first thing you think of for a healthy breakfast, but give it a try! I promise, you will find yourself satiated for longer periods of time and full of energy to start your day!

Tips for a Power Bowl Breakfast
- On Sundays, I typically make 4 “baked” sweet potatoes and 6 boiled eggs in my Instant Pot as part of my weekly meal prep for recipes such as this.
- You can purchase a microwavable bag of sweet potatoes at the grocery store that cook in only 8 minutes in your microwave. This is a super easy, quick option and the cooked potatoes will keep in your fridge for up to 5 days to use in other recipes.
- I prefer to leave the skins on the sweet potatoes for added fiber and nutritional content.
- Power bowls can easily be made with any leftover veggies, like our quick and easy Crack Broccoli recipe
