Sweet Potato & Spinach Omelette; Brown Bag Series #5

In my brown bag this week is a sweet potato and spinach omelette. Sweet potatoes are not only one of the most nutritious vegetables around they also taste like dessert; a double plus in my book.

Mixed with spinach they add an extra dimension to your standard omelette. Eaten before a workout sweet potatoes are known to boost performance of your muscles. Due to their high vitamin C content they are also good for relieving post workout muscle soreness.

Sweet Potato & Spinach Omelette

1 sweet potato, peeled & shredded
handful baby spinach, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
4 eggs, beaten with skim milk

In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add sweet potatoes, stirring for 8-10 minutes or until they are tender. Add bell pepper, cook until tender. Add spinach.  Cook, stirring 1-2 minutes or until spinach is just wilted. Season with salt and pepper.

Add eggs and continue cooking until firm on one side. Flip eggs in pan and finish cooking other side.
