As for the physical toll, there are a few other, much more delicious, steps we can take to help our bodies recover. In addition to a post workout shake, we all need to be sure to have a proper and nutritious breakfast. We have come up with what we think is a pretty solid combo. Four words....salmon, eggs, sweet potatoes.
First we'll tackle the salmon and the eggs, then the sweet potatoes:
Salmon Veggie Breakfast Scramble
Dill (or other spices, as desired)
Eggs (1dozen whole, cage free, organic)
Honestly, this one is really easy. Feel free to portion as you like, but I like to plan for about 4-5 eggs for myself and 2-3 for Lina.
The first step is to grill the salmon (or bake it). Place salmon on a sheet of aluminum foil and sprinkle dill or whatever other spice you like. Grill over medium heat for 10-12 minutes (until fish flakes apart). Super easy.
Add the oil to a hot frying pan. Once melted add all of the veggies and let them saute for a minute or two. Once the spinach has wilted, add all of the eggs. Continuously stir until you have a scramble.
Now you can add in the salmon. I like to shred it up with a fork and stir it in the scramble, but you can certainly leave it in tact as a topping to the eggs.
Again...super simple, nutrition dense, and perfectly paired with...
Sweet Potato HashIngredients
Sweet Potatoes (3 large for this recipe)
Grass Fed Butter (we like KerryGold) - about 2 tbsp
First you will need to grate the sweet potates down to a desired size. For the most part, thinner is better, but we'll leave that up to you. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the grated potatoes to the pan and continuously stir. Once the hash reaches a consistency you like, turn off the heat and add cinnamon to taste.
And there you have it. A perfect post-WoD breakfast to assist your body in recovery. Enjoy!
