31 days of Wholefood breakfast: Baked Sweet potato for breakfast?!

You know I like to serve dessert for breakfast, but thought I'd switch it up a bit.  How about dinner (or at least a side dish) for breakfast? What's that, you've never thought of a baked sweet potato in the morning?  Well, I hadn't either, but it certainly fits in nicely with the simple and delicious wholefood theme going on around here.  Not to mention warm and filling. 

It's quick, impossibly easy if you have a time bake setting on your oven and ready whenever you want. Plus, loaded with vitamins C and A - not to mention potassium which helps with stress (hello, Mondays)


::Sweet potato breakfast::
bake 1 per person
Sweet potatoes
salt
butter
cinnamon and maple syrup, optiona
Night before: wash sweet potatoes well so you can eat the skin too!
Line them all up on baking sheet in middle of your oven.  If you have a time-bake option set for 1 hr 5 min at 350.  If not, just turn it on as soon as you get up.  
Once they are cooked: split open, and big hunk of butter (which your body needs to assimilate all those naturally occurring vitamins) add a dash of salt or cinnamon and a slight drizzle of maple syrup.  Some potatoes are sweeter than others, so that part is purely a taste preference. 
I told the boys tonight we are having them in the morning.  my announcement met with a nice rounds of "Yeah's" and even one fist pump.  Sweet all around!

Enjoy!

Gosh. You have trained those boys so well! Believe me, this news would not be greeted by fist pumps at my house!

On another note--have you ever considered turning OFF word verification on your comments? I'm getting to the point that it's really difficult for me to read the CAPTCHA letters and numbers. Some people just can't take the time to do it. I really think it would make a difference in the number of comments you'd get. Just a thought.

Oh, Lib, I just left that comment about word verification--but then I discovered that you DON'T have it on. Forgive me!
