What a catchy title.

This weekend was a real good weekend. Let me tell you allllll about it.

You know that cute new bike I got? Well, I had to test her out. So on Friday night, before eating an actual dinner, we hopped on the ole’ hogs and took a nice little bike ride to Yogurtland. Dessert should always come before dinner on Friday nights. Fun fact of the day. Yogurtland is a frozen yogurt place. Duh. It’s not paleo, really in any way, but it’s highly delicious. I got pistachio and coconut topped with shredded coconut. So freaking delicious.

please do not comment that i need to wear a helmet. i got enough lectures on instagram

Then Saturday morning, I coached a workout at Red Rocks for CrosFit Broadway. If you haven’t been to Red Rocks, it should be on your bucket list. It’s this amazing amphitheatre that’s made from rocks. So you have to hike about 643 steps to get to the top of it. So all the psychotic people in Colorado that like to put themselves through misery on the weekends, join at Red Rocks and run and jump and sprint and jog and hike and climb, all while feeling like you are breathing through a straw. It’s an absolute blast. We ran up and down stairs and did box jumps, push ups, and dips on the seats. Then burpees. Who doesn’t love feeling miserable on a Saturday morning? I don’t, actually. So a bunch of us celebrated with tex mex at Morrison Inn and had some delicious margaritas and bloody marys to offset the calories we had just burned. Makes sense. Tons.


Then I got my nails done. I hate this expensive habit but it makes me feeling more girly. And I like that feeling at this time in my life.

Saturday night was spent by myself at home. It was pleasant. And lovely. I ate some dark chocolate  gelato. I really got into it with cold sugared desserts this weekend, didn’t I? I’m so naughty.

Sunday was kind of similar as Saturday. But this time, we worked out in the park. Park workouts are the best, especially when the weather is perfect. So I yelled at everyone for about 45 minutes. Then I moved on with my happy day. Again, onto my bike. I love that cruiser, yes I do. This time I rode downtown. To this new bar called View House. It kind of reminded me of when I was in college and had just turned 21. All the girls are wearing shorts that barely cover their lil’ cheeks and more makeup than I wear. Which is A LOT. I saw a lot of butt cheeks and a lot of drunk eyes. Which is saying something since I was intoxicated. Then we moved on to Blue Sake Bar because sake and japanese appetizers are the best. Then we finished off the night at Finley’s Pub. Because it’s the best. Best burger in town. Period. I swear they don’t pay me to say that. I wish they did, or at least fed me about 12 times per week for free. That’s fair, right? Wrong. Sadly, real wrong.

don’t you love my lil fitness freaks? they’re the best

I was in bed by 8:30pm. Sunday fundays are the best.

I wonder how much sh*t I’m going to get for being a naughty paleo eater. Lots of sh*t. LOTS.


Easy Delicious Breakfast Hash

  • Yield: 2-4 1x


  • 4 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1 poblano pepper, diced
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large sweet potato, shredded
  • 56 baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 chicken italian sausage links (I bought the already cooked kind), diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • hot sauce, to garnish


  1. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add diced bacon to the pan and cook until the fat seeps out and the bacon begins to brown.
  3. Once bacon is half way cooked, add the diced poblano pepper, yellow onion, and sweet potato. Mix together then cover to help steam the sweet potato and cook it quicker.
  4. After about 6-8 minutes of cooking, add in the mushrooms and chicken sausage along with the garlic powder, smoked paprika, and salt and pepper. Mix well, cover again and let cook for about 7-9 minutes, being sure to mix around to keep from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Once everything is nice and toasty, use a spoon to press four spots into your hash mixture, crack an egg into each spot, then add about a tablespoon of water to the pan and cover to help steam the eggs.
  6. Let steam until eggs are cooked to preference. Over easy is the right preference, in my opinion. Which is the right opinion.
  7. Top with hot sauce. Eat silly pants. EAT IT.

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. Thanks for posting wonderful food porn for me to oogle during my overnight shifts. Distracts me from the 10 pounds of plaintain chips I’m trying to not consume. Damn you, Whole Foods on my way to work.

  2. You’re going to hate me, but PLEASE wear a helmet. I got hit by a van three months ago while on my bike. I suffered some pretty serious injuries including memory loss, broken facial bones and a detached retina in my eye which required two operations and a lot of recovery time. If I hadn’t been wearing a helmet I would not be here writing this. I thought I was the most careful cyclist in the world, but the reality is you can’t control what drivers do. I will never get back on a bike because of it, but the least you can do is wear a helmet.

    1. I second that emotion! When I first got my road bike, I lost my balance and fell, hitting the pavement head first. My helmet cracked in half, but I was able to get up and walk away. I always bring a brush with me to straighten out my hair after I take off my helmet.

  3. you make me want to get my nails done, even my hair needs some maintenance done. hmph.
    the hash looks amazing too, mmmm… lunch time.

  4. I liked how you know it’s 643 steps … Haha. And thank you for the recipe. One question the already cooked sausage is it in the frozen meat section at whole foods or by deli meat? I recently bought chicken sausage link at sprouts and it was so NOT good. So I’m trying to figure out what EXACT sausage you used. And thanks again!!

  5. Can’t wait to make this on Saturday! Don’t take any sh*t from anyone!! You’re JB, you can do whatever you want!

  6. I’m just glad that you’er honest about what you eat! Sometimes I think some bloggers aren’t transparent and it SEEMS like they’re 100% on all the time – but they’re not. It helps everyone understand that they are normal when we see that you are too.

    Plus, life has to be worth living. And sometimes that means dark chocolate gelato.

  7. LOVE the pics of this hash, are you using a shorter lens now? Keep up the awesome work, I know photography can be frustrating!!

  8. You totally got me turned onto hash. It’s a regular deal for me as a college student now.

    At the beginning of most weeks, I try and make time to shred up a starch: sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots, rutabagas, etc.

    Or sometimes I roast a squash.

    Then I sautee that, an onion, and some ground sausage or sliced dogs.

    I season it with Cajun spice or 21 spice salute and put it in tupperware.

    Then breakfast is simple: throw hash in pan for 1-2 minutes, throw on plate and then scramble 2-3 eggs to go on top.

    I am one pretty healthy college student that makes my housemates jealous. 😉

    Thank you for hash inspiration!

  9. Been trying a few of your recipes lately, and dang girl! They’re even pleasing my picky hubs.

    PS I don’t like wearing helmets either. Everybody, mind your own business.

  10. Can’t wait to make this one! Thanks for the great food ideas and all the laughs along the way 🙂

  11. ignore the people who can’t stand that you live instead of being a slave to a way of eating. sheesh, people, get a life if you have nothing better to do than persecute sweet juli for being alive! she never claimed to be a role model.

    this hash looks fantastic. gonna have to try it out soon!

  12. Would leftover baked sweets work? I have never tried to shred them after they were cooked but if they were cold do you think they would shred?

  13. My favorite is Ben and Jerry’s! I’m so happy to hear that you eat ice cream and yogurt sometimes! Love the recipes and the pics!

  14. Oh man this looks crazy good. And you are seriously doing beautifully with your new camera. These shots look amazing. I can’t wait to see some more of your photography with the new camera. Also that bike is the best, how can I acquire one?

  15. LOVE your bike and your cute hat! I am about to repair a cruiser that my brother in law left out in the rain 🙂 And yeah, I agree with Kristina-super cute hat!

    Can’t wait to try this recipe…that reminds me-I need to order your cookbook today!

  16. In addition to a great recipe source, you’ve also become a good travel guide! I’m planning a trip to Denver this summer and I’ve taken note of your places to see/eat. Thanks!

  17. I just found gelato…..and I love, LOVE, LOVE it. And Pacuigo Dark Chocolate and Caramel Sea Salt are my favorite flavor right now.

  18. Don’t pay attention to the helmet freaks! I don’t wear one by choice because I’m all grown up, I understand the risks and it’s nobody’s business but mine. Heck, back in the day, such a thing didn’t even exist. A few hundred people die in bike accidents every year, hundreds of thousands die from heart disease and cancer. I wonder how many of those people actually pay any attention to their diet???
    Thank you for your blog, your recipes and all you do!!!!

  19. Made this tonight using a leftover wild rice brat from a cook out on Sunday. It made the whole house smell amazing. My only problem was the consistency of the hash – I think our shredded sweet potato was a little too damp and it added a mushy texture. Next time I’m going to try cubed and fried or perhaps sweet potato fries as the base! Overall, yum!

  20. I’m just happy that you are honest about what you eat! I LOVE fro yo. So much. No, it’s not paleo….but what would life be if I were so neurotic that I never had a cold, delicious dessert? It would be sad.

  21. I just made this recipe for my husband’s birthday breakfast. He said it was the best breakfast he has ever had and that includes restaurants. I totally agree. I will be making this again. I seriously can’t stop thinking or talking about it. So easy and delicious!!! LOVE IT!!!

  22. I just made this and it was amazing! It’s probably my favorite recipe to date. Love your posts! Keep the deliciousness coming!

  23. Made this tonight & it was awesome! Hubby harvested a bighorn sheep last fall that we made into all kinds of yummy sausage so I actually used sheep chorizo instead of the sausages. Just cooked it in a different pan then added it in with the bacon. Paired it with banana bread from Civilized Caveman that I made into pancakes. True breakfast for dinner. OMG. Will definitely make again. Thanks Juli!

  24. We have just began to follow a Paleo diet. One week today and we love it! Just found your site and cant wait to try this recipe!!
    My hubby had a biking accident a couple of years ago. He was hit by a truck. It threw him head first into the windshield. Of course the windshield broke but he also dented the cab of the truck with his helmet. He walked away with some cracked ribs and 40 stitches. Thank God he was wearing his helmet 🙂
    Sorry, I cant help from sharing that info

  25. I basically love that you are a naughty paleo eater. Especially helpful since I am just getting started on this paleo ride and I fel super overwhelmed but then when I come to your site I LAUGH until I pee (awkward?) and then don’t feel sad about my margarita. Margaritas are happy. Always. 🙂 Keep up the great posts and food, Juli!

  26. This is the bomb! When I tell people I’m trying to follow a Paleo lifestyle (never diet…diet food sucks) and give a brief explanation I get comments about the tasteless food I must be eating. If they only knew how good it is! Keep the great recipes and commentary coming. You crack me up!

  27. I just had this for dinner and I kinda want to hug you right now. Sweet baby Jesus that was delicious. We should be friends. Tks.

  28. Hi, I was just pinning this recipe to my Pinterest (it looks delish!), and while enumerating the ingredients, I found there was no chicken. Did you place this under the chicken heading because you used chicken sausage? Should I use chicken sausage? (Should I stress less about recipes? Yes, yes I should.)

  29. This dish makes life worth living. Seriously. Cake, pasta, and bread? Take it! So long as I can eat this hash for the rest of my life….

  30. Made this recipe this morning for hubby and I for brunch. AMAZING!! I used my food processor to shred the sweet potato, onion, and poblano together and it was perfect! Oh and i pushed everything to one side of the pan and scrambled the eggs (hubby only likes scrambled) on the cleared side before stirring it all together. Served it with along with some baked apples and it was a winner. Thank you!

  31. Girl! You have changed my whole outlook on food with your recipes!! Today I selected this recipe and the breakfast sausage meatloaf to make for “Fat Friday” at work.. they all make fun of me because they think all I eat is bird food and wheatgrass lol.. Everyone was complimenting me on my food selections and there is none leftover 🙂 It really was so easy to make! Thanks!

  32. I just made this for breakfast. My only problem is that there wasn’t enough! lol This was so yummy – my daughter & I devoured it and the other serving is left for hubby to eat when he gets back from his run. I’m making 5 of your recipes this week, I believe!

  33. My wife is Paleo, and she suggested I check out your website to find a recipe for all the sweet potatoes we harvested this year. This is a wonderful recipe. Well done. Thank you.

  34. Ok just go ahead and make this…., don’t think about it, do not stop, just go straight to GO! This is so incredibly yummy! I’ve made it twice now for my wife and I and we both LOVE it. It’s super easy, enough to even make in the morning with a food processor to dice the sweet potatoes. Will definitely be in our food rotation…thanks so much for the recipe! 🙂

  35. I am addicted to this hash! A bit too cumbersome for weekday breakfast but I often make it on slow weekend mornings. I use uncooked Italian sausage and skip on poblano peppers because they are hard to come by. I also sometimes substitute mushrooms for eggplant. Delish!

  36. I made this as a surprise breakfast in bed for my boyfriend this morning and it was absolutely delicious!! We didn’t have any sausage but the combination of cooking the pepper, onions, and sweet potato in the bacon pan was so good, happy stomachs all around 🙂

  37. Made this last night for this week, I altered the portions of eggs and sausage, but this makes A LOT! I ate it this morning at work, the whole office was green….WITH ENVY! Seriously run don’t walk to make this receipe.
    -Side note, chopping and sreadding takes while so make sure you do that pre bacon drop 🙂 YAY PALEO!

  38. This is so good. Best sweet potato hash ever. I omitted the eggs for my husband who is allergic, and it was still completely amazing. Of course anything involving bacon generally gets a thumbs up from him!
