This should really be called “I don’t know what to make so I used anything I had in my fridge-throw together”. Because that’s what it is. I had a ton of leftover junk in my fridge, I got hungry, so I utilized. I’m one awesome utilizin’ son of a b.

I played kickball again this week. And sucked ass. The good looking men on my team were most likely disappointed. Especially Tommy who asked me to be on his team because he thought I was athletic. Poor guy. He never knew what was coming. Bruises on my ankle. That’s what was coming. And strikes. I suck at kickball. At least there are extremely good looking females on our team, as well. Cool ass, good looking females to be exact. It’s funny, even though every time we go into the outfield we need 4 women playing, the guys still have to yell at us to get onto the field. The rules never change…but we all stand there on the side hoping to go unnoticed. Never happens. Bummer.

I want to do fun things this weekend. Other than laundry. Fun things meaning sit in the park and read the second book of the Hunger Games while people watching in between. So creepy. So weird. But sounds sooooo right.

Maybe I’ll make desserts too. I’m trying to limit my dessert intake leading up to Regionals. I’m pretty much trying to limit my food intake for a while. My body and hormones have been a bit screwed up for a while now and are finally getting back to normal (hopefully), but I’ve found that I don’t really need to eat a ton of food to thrive from. Therefore, my meals are somewhat sad looking. And I feel deprived. Screw you body! SCREW YOU!


Easy Breakfast Scramble

  • Yield: 2-4 1x


  • 1 sweet potato, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 poblano pepper, sliced
  • 1 container of sliced mushrooms (about 68 oz)
  • 1/2lb grass fed ground beef
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon choice of fat (I used duck fat)
  • 1 tablespoon herbes de provence
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Slice and dice everything so it’s ready to go.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add your choice of fat and minced garlic to the pan.
  3. When the garlic becomes fragrant, add your sweet potatoes, yellow onion, poblano pepper, and mushrooms. Cover and let cook for around 3 minutes.
  4. Then add your beef and break up with a wooden spoon or spatula. Cover and let meat cook through- about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Once beef is almost cooked through, crack yours eggs directly into the pan and add your herbes de provence and salt and pepper.
  6. Use your spoon to break up the eggs and help them cook through as well as incorporate all the seasonings.
  7. Once eggs are cooked through, taste to make sure it has enough salt and seasonings and add more if needed!
  8. Then serve!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I’ve limited my “paleo baking” to Saturday’s only. That way I can try out new things and take all my goods to the team WOD at 10 am. I find this keeps me from eating almond flour/coconut flour concoctions all weekend long… And I look forward to it !

  2. I pretty much live off of scrambles like this! I usually use turkey burger or sausage or whatever I have but I love it!

  3. yay for duck fat! One of my favorites to cook with. This meal looks like what I make most nights of the week- I’m a very throw together meal person. And your kickball experience… so reminds me of high school when all the girls would stand to the side and pray the ball didn’t come flying their direction.. guess not much changes as we grow up haha. At least your having fun (I think) !

  4. In my house we call dishes like this ‘refrigerator Velcro’…they are the BEST! An awesome way to use what you got :0)

  5. It’s a depressing thing when you realize you don’t really “need” as much food as you “want.” Sigh.

    Where do you find your white sweet potatoes? I’ve only come across orange ones.

  6. I thought it was a great idea to start a kickball team when I lived in NY. It was there that I was reminded, not only do I not have depth perception, but I suck at kickball as well. One day the other team was short on players and I allowed them to use some random little kids who were hanging out at the park as subs. Those kids kicked our asses and the team won and my team hated me. True story.

    Congrats on making it to regionals!

  7. Looks great!… much more visually appealing than the egg scramble I made last night. [Sometimes it has to be about function, not flash.]

    Serves 1-2.

  8. Could be worse – you could have joined a dodge-ball team. I don’t understand this recent trend of competitive PE games. OY who knows — but I do know that I am going to try this tonight! Hope my scramblin’s turn out. If not the best culinary trick I learned from a pro chef….”hot sauce hides a multitude of culinary sins”

  9. Being good at kickball is overrated! BTW, I figured out the protein shake thing. 3 parts coconut milk, 1 part water 🙂

  10. I wore my PaleOMG shirt in Cali when Leslie and I went to Desert Crossfit (http://www.desertcrossfit.com/). Cheryl, the owner, said “Oh, I love that blog!”. I says to her, I says, “Cheryl, I know the girl that runs it…she’s my friend and coach. No big deal” And then she thought I was the coolest of the cool for knowing you.

    Ok, so some of that story is fabricated….but she really did say she loved your blog. You’re famous!!!

  11. Hey chica’s! On the sweet potato front: There is a very common misconception about what is a “Sweet Potato” and what is actually a “Yam”. The misconception is understandable because many, many grocery stores AND restaurants actually mislabel them (ridiculous, but true! Most of the time when you think you are eating Sweet Potato Fries at a restaurant, you are in fact eating Yam fries!). Juli, I am pretty sure that most of the “Sweet Potatoes” that you use in your recipes (aside from this one) are in fact Yam’s. Yam’s have that bright orange flesh and darker brown skin. True Sweet Potatoes are the ones that actually look much more white, like regular potatoes; like the ones you used in this particular recipe. It should be a crime, but many grocery stores only carry Yam’s and slap the Sweet Potato label on them; I really don’t understand why. Last weird thing: Yam’s are in fact much sweeter than Sweet Potatoes & have a higher natural sugar content. Why?!? I have no clue! Just another way for the world to play tricks with our minds. That’s all! 🙂

  12. Made something similar to this the other day but used some different spinach instead of the sweat potato… was pretty damn awesome to say the least! Now I came upon and really want to try it with the sweat potato!

  13. I just made this ahead for breakfast tomorrow (and a snack right now). It was so easy and delicious! I added about half a bag of baby spinach to the mix, and it was great. Thanks for another keeper!

  14. I tried this one today, but had to ad lib with what I had in the fridge. I used chorizo instead, left out the French seasonings, added a few more eggs, and added some salsa after it was cooked. Yummy! Have tried many of your recipes…THANKS for all that you do! Love your site!

    Just found your blog…inspired me to get back on the Paleo wagon. I need your breakfast advice!! Breakfast has been the hardest for me, partly because I am not a huge egg fan, and also because I usually eat a portable breakfast after 5:30 am CF in a corner at work.
    Besides protein shakes and boiled eggs…which I lived on…any advice for make ahead breakfast on the go??

    1. honestly, I just eat a regular meal, usually leftovers, so today for breakfast i had chicken asparagus and avocado and i will have the same for lunch AND dinner. it’s just another meal, it doesn’t have to look a certain way. you could also try my granola or some chicken apple sausages to have in the morning!

  16. JB,
