You know something is really good if I make it at least two weeks in a row. This statement holds true for baked oatmeal, paleo chicken salad…and this breakfast hash 🙂

I made this three weeks in a row for my work day breakfast meal prep and I feel like it got better with each batch! The ingredients are super simple:

  • Pastured ground sausage
  • Sweet potato
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Bell pepper
  • Kale
  • Basil
  • Green onion

I served it with eggs and avocado, and it was truly what dreams were made of — a delicious, balanced and quick breakfast that fueled me up for my day! I truly believe you don’t have to eat boring or bland, in order to eat “healthy” or meet your health goals.

Now, you know I’m a big fan of the plate method, and this meal is an excellent example of that with all components accounted for:

  • Protein: sausage (and eggs)
  • Fat: sausage (and avo)
  • Carbs: sweet potato
  • Non-starchy veggies: onion, garlic, bell pepper, green onion, kale

Ensuring my meals (especially breakfast) contains a good balance of these components has helped me feel so much more satisfied from my meals! My hunger is regulated, my blood sugar isn’t on a crazy up and down rollercoaster, and I find my energy levels are more focused. I don’t constantly feel like I need a snack or quick sugar rush, because of the mix of protein, fat, carbs, and fiber-rich (non-starchy) veggies.

Now, does EVERY single meal look like this? No! Actually, yesterday morning Tyler and I spent some time at a coffee shop for a slow start to the weekend. I had one of their banana blueberry muffins for “breakfast”, and nothing else, and later that day realized I was SO MUCH HUNGRIER than normal. Not only had I not eaten enough in general, but my muffin also lacked a balance of protein, fat and fiber to match the carbs.

Knowledge is power, food is fuel (and also fun, no doubt)! I truly believe when you understand the role that food play in your life — from your mood, hunger levels, energy, recovery, even your hormones — you are empowered to make choices from a place of education and understanding.

Anyway — back to this Savory Sausage and Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash 🙂 believe me when I say you’ll love it, whether it be for a week day meal prep situation, or a slower Saturday brunch option.

We used local pasture-raised ground sausage from Hickory Nut Gap, but you could also use something like ground turkey as well! Shoot, you could even slice up some chicken sausage if you wanted — make it your own! This Brown Sugar and Maple pastured ground pork from White Oak Pastures sounds especially yummy.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 5 servings


  • 1 lb ground sausage (We love our local pasture-raised pork from Hickory Nut Gap)
  • 1 sweet potato, large, diced
  • 2 bell peppers, deseeded and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 bunch kale, destemmed and chopped Can also use frozen kale
  • Handful fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 bunch green onion, for garnish
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Start by cooking sausage in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking up into small crumbles as it cooks. Once fully cooked, remove from skillet and set aside in a bowl.
  • Add oil to skillet if needed (I just left some fat from the sausage), then add in diced onion and saute for 2-3 min until translucent. Add in minced garlic and saute for an additional minute.
  • Add in remaining veggies (except green onion); cook until softened (~10 min), stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Add cooked sausage back to skillet, stir everything together and garnish with green onion before serving.



My goal is to help you detach your worth from their wellness and learn how to steward your health in a way that’s sustainable, enjoyable, and meaningful to you, so you can feel your best.

Pro tips to help you maximize your membership :)

Anticipate obstacles: obstacles are like red lights on the way to the store: an inevitable part of the journey. Anticipate them and don’t let them define your ability or stop you from trying.

Take action: you can absorb all the information and education you want, but that’s not what leads to change — taking ACTION is!! Regardless of the results, taking action helps you gain clarity to continue pressing forward. I know this can bring discomfort, but temporary discomfort is better than longterm discomfort. God is mighty in you — you GOT this! 

Ditch all or nothing thinking: we believe something is better than nothing and ANY effort counts. You don’t have to implement 100% of the content to see change and improvements in your health. Each action you take compounds. 40% effort is better than 0%

Ask questions: if you’re confused, not sure where to start, feeling behind, or just have a question for me or the group, ask it! Someone else probably has the same question, so by speaking up you’re getting the answer and helping someone else do the same.
