Sweet Potato Hash

Sometimes I just need my diner food fix and what satisfies that better than a hash? 
 Even better, without all the unnecessary calories.
Even, even better, a healthy hash that's totally guilt free!

Health benefits of Sweet Potatoes...

- High in vitamin B6, C, and D
- Great source of magnesium which is necessary for healthy artery, bone, blood, heart, muscle, and nerve function
- Rich in carotenoids which strengthen eyesight, boost immunity, ward off cancer, and protect against effects of aging

And that's only to name a few.

Sweet Potato Hash
- 1 sweet potato
- 1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
- 5 egg whites
- 1 tsp EVOO
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- pinch cayenne
- pepper to taste

Skin and grate sweet potato and set aside. Heat EVOO in a skillet over medium high heat and add onion. Cook until tender and add sweet potato. Let sweet potato cook for about 5 minutes on each side, without messing with it. Turn heat down to medium low and add in egg whites. Let eggs cook for about 2 minutes and then add in spices. Enjoy!
