Too often, people lock into the mindset that they can only have "breakfast foods" upon waking, but having egg whites every morning, month after month, would become boring. Don't be afraid to include other lean proteins and whole-grain carbohydrates.


  • 5 oz 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 sweet potato, cut into cubes
  • ½ medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) green bell pepper
  • ¼ onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pinch table salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp red pepper
