I think anything in a bowl just looks and tastes better!! When you pair it with a lean, healthy protein, low-glycemic carbs and a healthy Omega rich sauce….talk about a complete healthy meal!!! I even like to add a bit of goat-cheese on top for extra calcium! Enjoy in Good Health!!
Pulled Chicken/Sweet Potato Hash Bowl
Serves about 6
- 1 chicken leg
- 2 quartswater
- 1 shallot chopped into small pieces
- 1 garlic glove minced
- ½ tbsp. coconut oil
- Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
In as saucepan over med-high heat, simmer chicken leg in water for 2 hours (until tender and meat is falling off the bone.) Remove Chicken leg from water, allow to cool, and pull meat from the bone.

Sweet Potato Hash
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oilDivide 3 cups grated sweet potato, from 2 medium sweet potatoes (keep the skin on)
1 1/2 cups chopped kale pieces, from about 6-8 stemmed kale leaves sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
Sauté the kale pieces in 1 teaspoon of oil; you can do this in the cast iron first on in a separate pan while the potatoes cook. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. While the skillet preheats, grate the sweet potato with a box grater or in a food processor with the grating attachment. Dry to prevent too much moisture in your potatoes. Add 2 tablespoons oil to the pan and let it heat up. Add the potatoes sea salt and freshly ground black pepper; season to taste. Toss the potatoes in the oil with a spatula, then spread evenly. Let cook for 3-4 minutes. Flip the potatoes and cook until slightly crispy, about another 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat; add the kale and toss together. Remove from the pan and serve.
For Extra Omegas: Add ½ avocado. Drizzle with avocado/tahini sauce or put on the side.
