Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Quinoa can provide you with both carbs and protein for energy and muscle repair. It's a fantastic energy food. Sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates, beta-carotene, vitamin C, manganese, and potassium. After a workout, the body's glycogen level goes down and the sweet potato being a complex carb helps to restore glycogen level.

INGREDIENTS:
  • Quinoa - 30 gm
  • Cottage cheese - 30 gm
  • Egg whites - 2
  • Onion (small), minced - 1
  • Kale/ Spinach, chopped - 1 cup
  • Sweet potato (medium), peeled and grated - 1
  • Tomatoes (small), halved - 1
  • Vegetable broth - ½ cup
  • Garlic cloves, minced - 2
  • Black pepper - ¼ tsp.
  • Oil - ½ tbsp.
DIRECTIONS:
Step 1 Boil the vegetable broth in a pan. Add quinoa and simmer, covered, over medium-low heat until grains are tender and till liquid has absorbed, about 5-6 minutes.  Remove pan from heat and let stand covered for 5 minutes, and then fluff quinoa with a fork. Step 2 Place a skillet over medium heat and add the oil. Add grated sweet potato and cook 4 minutes, or until beginning to turn tender. Add garlic, stir in cherry tomatoes and kale; cook until greens are slightly wilted. Stir in quinoa, remove from heat, and cover skillet to keep warm. Step 3 To poach eggs, place ½ cup water in small microwave-safe bowls. Carefully crack eggs into each bowl, cover, and microwave on high for 1 minute, or until whites are set and opaque but yulks are still runny. Remove eggs from the bowl with a slotted spoon and take the egg whites only. Step 4 Take quinoa mixture among bowl and top with a poached egg. Garnish with cottage cheese, black pepper.
