Recipe

I am always on the lookout for delicious breakfast recipes, especially the kind I can make on Sunday and then enjoy throughout the week. So when a fantastic reader (thanks Amy!) sent me a recipe idea for a Savory Egg and Sweet Potato Dish from Better Homes and Garden, I couldn’t wait to get to work making it lower calorie and portable for breakfasts on the go. The resulting Sweet Potato and Spinach muffins are the perfect fall breakfast treat. With only 50 calories per muffin and 1 PointsPlus, they also make a great snack or lunch paired with a warm soup or hearty salad.
