A delicious Paleo breakfast idea!

We’re rounding out January- the month of resolutions- and I am happy to say that though I don’t make typical resolutions, the one I made for January that I’ve kept so far!

Sweet Potato and Sausage Breakfast Cups- the perfect Paleo and Whole 30 breakfast!

One thing I’ve really grown to love this month in the absence of tons of things is having a cup of hot tea each morning. My sister gave my daughters and me some beautiful tea cups a few years ago and I love drinking out of mine. I get up early before anyone else in the house and make my cup of tea to enjoy before things get craaaazy for the day! I’ve really enjoyed Bigelow’s Lemon Ginger variety. Ginger has such a unique flavor and I’ve never had a tea exactly like this.

Then I make breakfast for everyone and sometimes I’ll enjoy another cup. I’ve especially enjoyed a second cup these last few days when it’s actually cold in Houston! One recipe we’ve enjoyed for breakfast this year is Sweet Potato and Sausage Cups. I make them in a mini muffin pan and they’re the perfect Paleo breakfast for taking on the go if necessary.
