Bake a batch of whole roasted sweet potatoes at the beginning of the week for quick and hearty meals throughout the week.

Serves 1


  • 1 small to medium sweet potato, baked
  • olive oil, avocado oil, or butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 large handfuls of cleaned and roughly chopped greens (spinach & kale taste great)
  • ¼ to ½ an avocado, cut into small pieces
  • salt and pepper


1. To bake sweet potato, heat the oven to 210°C. Poke sweet potato with a fork a few times and place on the oven rack. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour (this will depend on the size of your sweet potato) until softened.

2. When you’re ready to serve, heat enough oil or butter to cover the base of a small pan over medium heat. Crack egg into the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, until the whites are cooked through and firm.

3. Meanwhile, warm your sweet potato if it’s not already. Slice in half lengthwise, season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with olive oil or some butter. When egg is finished cooking, place on top of the sweet potato.

4. In the same pan as the egg, add a little more oil or butter over a medium heat and toss in the greens. Stir and cook until just wilted (this should take only a minute or two). Add to sweet potato and serve with avocado and more salt and pepper as needed.
