Ingredients

  • 6 ozs Pork Sausage casings removed
  • 1 Sweet Potato medium, diced into cubes
  • 3 cups Kale leaves, chopped
  • 1 Apple medium, diced
  • 1/8 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt

Instructions

  • Cook the sausage over medium heat, breaking it up into crumbles with the back of a spoon as it cooks. Once it is cooked, remove and set aside on a plate.
  • In the same skillet, add the diced sweet potato and cook over medium-high for 1 to 2 minutes or until brown on one side. Lower the heat to medium, stir and cook for 7 to 8 more minutes or until tender and cooked through.
  • Add the kale and the apple to the sweet potato with the cinnamon and cover with a lid. Cook over medium for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the kale is wilted. Then add the sausage back to the skillet and mix until warmed through. Add sea salt to taste. Divide into bowls and enjoy!

Notes

Health Facts:
This meal is the perfect option for the athlete that is looking to make some big gains! Pork is an extremely high protein food, and protein is required to build, repair and maintain muscle. Athletes require more protein than non-active people to nourish their body, and those who are aiming to put on muscle mass should remain very conscious of their protein intake. Sweet potato is also very supportive for those looking to make gains as it is a starchy vegetable full of nutrients. Your body requires energy to build muscle and starchy carbs fill the muscles with glycogen which does just that! In addition, the kale and apples in the recipe are extremely high in fibre which will support optimal digestion. Adding additional fibre to this meal is important because pairing a starchy carb with animal protein slows down the digestive system dramatically (which is great for remaining full, but not the most supportive for healthy bowel movements!).
