Day 2 - Talk about Breakfast

For many days of whole 30's past, breakfast has been hard-boiled eggs and a piece of fruit.  A virtuous, uninspiring, downright boring breakfast.  I always think it's what I should have, so even when not doing the whole30 thing, I'll pack some eggs and fruit for work, and then find myself in a coffee shop ordering a latte and often a croissant.  This weekend I decide to do something crazy - make a delicious breakfast that would last into the week.  I prepped all of the ingredients for a breakfast casserole last night, assembled it this morning, set the oven on delay start, and then went for a run with friends happy to know that while I was running, breakfast was cooking.  And it was, indeed, delicious, with lots of leftovers to get me at least partially through the week.

Breakfast Casserole:
1 large bunch kale, destemmed and chopped
2 small sweet potatoes, small dice
1/2 lb pork breakfast sausage
1 red onion, small dice
8 eggs
1/3 c coconut milk
Nutmeg, salt, pepper

Roast sweet potatoes and red onion in a 9x13 pan with a little salt and olive oil @ 400 degrees until onions are beginning to caramelize and sweet potatoes are cooked through.  Saute sausage until cooked through.  Add kale and cook until kale is wilted and most of the water is gone.  Drain out any remaining liquid and add kale and sausage to pan with sweet potato and onion.  Beat eggs with coconut milk and add to casserole.  Grate nutmeg on top.  Season with salt and pepper.  Bake at 375 for 20 - 30 minutes.  I found that this made 6 servings.

Day 2 Meals:
Breakfast:  casserole, coffee with coconut milk
Lunch:  leftover veg soup from Sat w/ chicken instead of egg
Dinner:  grilled steak, pureed parsnips, roasted brussel sprouts
Snacks:  frozen mango, pistachios; 1/2 banana with almond butter
