The Right Way to Start (and End) The Day

It's been a few days since I talked about food, so I thought I'd share this with you!

By the time I got home from the gym and a trip to Trader Joe's on Saturday it was almost noon and I hadn't anything to eat other than a few peanuts and raisins before the gym! I was hun-gar-ry!!

There was a lonely sweet potato sitting on the counter that had been there all week and some eggs and veggies in the fridge. Plus, I had a little bit of cherry salsa left to finish off. Hmmmm.....

Looks delicious, right? It was!! Eggs, veggies and potatoes go well together, so why not put the eggs on the potato?! Just a little (healthy) twist on a good breakfast dish.

I probably could have added a little cheese to this, like a laughing cow wedge or something, but I didn't think of it at the time and this was perfectly satisfying just as it was. This was definitely a good combination.

Tonight is a NYRR Young Professionals Committee fundraiser - the spinning class at FlyWheel with mingling afterwards. Within four days it was sold out, with 42 people had paid $40-$75 to buy a bike for the class and support youth running programs around the country. It's going to be a great event and I'm really thankful for everyone who has pitched in to make it happen. Chances are we're going to hold another class in May because we have a waiting list of more than 20 people(!) but our next event is going to be a *free* one focusing on women's fitness fashion on March 16th. So, if you're in town, put that on your calendar!

Eggs and pototos, where the potatoes aren't fried? Crazytown. I'll have to try it when I'm all up in potatoes again.

Don't get me wrong, Rose, I definitely go for the fried potatoes when I'm out for breakfast at a greasy diner. What else would I get at a place like that?!
