Healthy Eats: Baked Egg Casserole with Kale, Chicken Sausage, Sweet Potato & Red Peppers

If the title of this dish didn't make your mouth water then you should probably just stop reading now.

As a full time working gal, it can be hard sometimes to eat healthy when you're always on-the-go. For me, it's all about connivence. Meal prepping for the week ahead has done me wonders by expanding my cooking knowledge past eggs and avocado on toast - although it's still my ultimate favorite breakfast meal.


This baked egg dish gives you not only a full-packed punch of protein and antioxidants, but a tasty, ready-to-go meal that you can easily heat up in the morning for breakfast or pack it up and take it with you as a snack!

Ingredients
12 eggs
1 pack of chicken sausage (4 in a pack)
1 red pepper
1 cup of chopped kale
1 sweet potato
1/3 cup of water
olive oil
salt and pepper

1. Chop up your chicken sausage, red pepper and sweet potato


I used Al Fresco's all natural Smoked Andouille Chicken Sausage. Warning: this flavor has a little kick to it! There's Spanish paprika, black pepper, and garlic already added to the meat.

2. Add ingredients in pan over olive oil


Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over the ingredients before placing a lid over the top. This will speed up the cooking process to about 7-10 minutes (or until the meat is cooked and potatoes are soft).

3. Add chopped kale to casserole dish


Instead of spraying the pan with Pam, I like to spread coconut oil around the base and sides of the pan. Place your cup of chopped kale on the bottom of the dish spread out.

4. Add cooked chicken sausage, red peppers and sweet potatoes to casserole dish


5. Crack 12 eggs over ingredients


Make sure to leave the yolks in tact (unless you prefer them scrambled) and spread out over the entire dish. Add 1/3 cup of water. Set dish in a 400 degrees pre-heated oven and cook for 30-35 minutes.

Chow time!




Target Athleisure, New Beginnings, and a Giftcard Giveaway

The month of June has proven to be a whirlwind of new beginnings; adjusting to a new job, moving to a new apartment, and reconstructing a new health & fitness routine. 


Part of finding what works for my current lifestyle included trying new fitness classes and joining a new gym. And, as well all know, there's no better fitness motivation than some new workout clothes (or maybe that's just me). Earlier this month I went to the downtown Target to find some new summer dresses and swimsuits, but was surprised to find that over half the items ending up in my cart were workout clothes. I always knew Target had athleisure, but their newest items were too cute to pass up.


My browsing quickly turned into a haul of three workout tank tops and one pair of fitness capris.


All items are from Champion's DuoDry collection. Tip: Go down one size for the loose fitting tanks. I'm usually a size Small, but in this case the XSmall fit perfectly.


Now you have the chance to win a Target gifcard and pick out your own athleisure (details below). I recommend the Inspired Hearts Color Crisscross Back Tank Top in Black/Violet pictured above!
