Explode happiness from your toes and up to the sky!
Now, bow down to my $35 barbell before I beat you with it!
This is long overdue because I'm tired of missing working outs because of my schedule and pure laziness of driving 30 mins to a gym. Missing the gym is very bad because I've been bored without them and deciding to fill that boredom with baking Paleo desserts...

All ideas stolen from Pinterest of course...to include my Easter Outfit!

Aside from that, I was looking forward to the weekend so that I could try out a concoction I've been conjuring up in my head. I'm a really good cook...unless it has anything to do with breakfast. I could probably set fire to a bowl of cold cereal. But it's the weekend. Magical things happen on the weekend. So I made an egg pie. Not only did it look good but it really hit the spot on this fine Easter Morning :) Here's how I did it.
- 6 eggs + 2 egg whites
- 1/2 tsp of ground: Garlic powder, Onion powder, Chili powder, Cumin
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 2 Cups grated Sweet potato
- 1/2 C Green Bell pepper diced
- 1/2 C Red Bell Pepper diced
- 1/4 Onion diced
- 4 Mushrooms sliced
Set your oven to 375. Once you've grated the sweet potato in a bowl, add the 2 egg whites and spices. Mix well. In a 9" frying pan on med-high heat, flatten the sweet potato into the pan so it covers the pan like a hash brown.
Once it's all crispy and
burnt brown, place it into a pie pan. If you don't have a pie pan because you're a normal person, just use a 9" cake pan and toss it in there so it makes a crust at the bottom.
Now you need something to cover that up because it straight up looks like garbage. So, scramble the six eggs in a bowl and saute your pepper and onion in the pan until the onions are softened and a little roasted. Should take about 3 mins on a med-high skillet.
Add the mushrooms to the beaten eggs and add the peppers. Pour all of it into the pie pan to cover your disgrace of a hash brown.
All pretty now!
Place the pie pan on a cookie sheet (if using pie pan) and bake for 20-25 mins.
As I was serving it, I was wondering if I should call it a quiche or a Fritta because I have not idea what either of those are. When I gave it to Steve he asked, "What is this? Egg Pie?" and I said "Yes. Yes it is."
