Ok, I got the book Feed Zone based on a peeps recommendation. I have to say, the Quinoa Sweet Potato Hash might be a new staple for pre-training meals. I made slight changes to the main recipe based on what came in my CSA.


  • 1 Cup of Cooked Quinoa
  • 1 Small Yam
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 Small Onion
  • 1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Couple Sprigs of Fresh Dill


The night before, I cooked the Quinoa using hemp milk and water with a bit of honey – I like to deviate from directions but you can just follow those directions that came with with quinoa. Plus I wanted the hemp protein in the meal.Quinoa

Next I diced the yam and placed it in the oven for 1 hour at 400 degrees. Again, the night before.

PlateIn the morning, I sautéed the onions with a bit of EVOO. Cooked for about 4-5 minutes until tender. I then warmed up the quinoa and yam in the same pan. In another pan, I cooked the eggs to order. In my case, I did scrambled but over easy would have worked too and mix in with the hash. In the meantime, I chopped up the fresh dill and mixed in with the quinoa, onion, yam right at the very end. Once the eggs were cooked, I plated everything.

I have to say, this was quite yummy. Loaded with great protein and carbs. I felt well fueled and had plenty of energy. The eggs could have easily been switched out for black beans or kidney beans to make the dish vegan. Just a great start to the training morning yesterday.
