Easy Potato Hash With Eggs
In our home we eat eggs for breakfast every day. I remember growing up and eating cereal out a box with lots of pasteurized milk. If only I knew then about the joy and pleasure of home cooked meals at breakfast time as I do now! I would have been a different child, I’m sure.
One of the reasons I like eggs for breakfast is because they are a nourishing food as well as a frugal protein. A few weeks ago my husband and our 2 children were in Lancaster, England. During our stay we visited a local farm where I picked up a box of their farm fresh eggs straight from their free range chickens. These chickens were free to roam about and were not confined to a small space. They looked healthy and happy to be free and roaming about.
The next morning, we made those eggs and they were most probably the best eggs I have ever had. The yolk was a deep orange and the flavour wonderful.
Eggs are some of the most nutritious food created by the Lord. They contain almost every essential nutrient we need on a daily basis. For little ones, they are a good source of vitamin A, vitamin D and calcium which are necessary for optimal growth support.
Potato Hash with Eggs
This breakfast is simple and easy to make on a busy morning. I fry the potatoes in coconut oil because coconut oil is a healthy fat. It is filled with medium chain saturated fats which the body uses for instant energy. Not only that, but it is an anti-inflammatory food.
Personally, since removing unhealthy fats from my kitchen and cooking with healthy ones, I have noticed a change in energy, weight and overall wellness.
