Sweet potatoes have a lot going for them as a breakfast potato of choice. Shredded into hash browns, they make a bigger flavor statement than regular old potato hash browns, and the sweetness is a perfect contrast with salty bacon and eggs.
Sweet potatoes are also strong sources of beta-carotene, manganese, and copper and safe sources of starch.
Sure, sweet potato hash browns can be cooked in a skillet. But if you have a waffle iron in the back of the cupboard that’s not being used for waffles any more, then pull it out. A waffle iron quickly and easily turns shredded sweet potatoes (and regular potatoes) into hash browns. The strings of sweet potato are both tender and crispy, with sweet, buttery flavor. Pile them high on plate and they’ll fly off the breakfast table (and the dinner table, too).

Labneh is a type of Middle Eastern “cheese” made from strained yogurt. Thick and creamy with a mild, tangy flavor, labneh is typically served as a spread or dip. Although labneh can be found in many grocery stores, it’s also really easy to make at home. And if you make it with organic, full-fat cultured yogurt, it’s chock-full of good saturated fat and beneficial probiotics.
Even so, you might be thinking, “Dairy? Really?” If that’s the case, then this recipe might not be for you. It’s true that some people don’t tolerate dairy well. But it’s also true that for others, a little bit of dairy can be part of a healthy, well-rounded diet. As noted in this definitive guide, dairy resides in Primal limbo. If you do indulge, then homemade labneh can be a delicious savory treat.
Making labneh is simple: Wrap full-fat yogurt in cheesecloth and let the moisture drain out for 12 to 24 hours, depending on how thick you want it. Then, pour really good extra virgin olive oil on top and if you like, throw in some herbs and/or spices. Mint, basil, parsley, and chives are good; so are za’atar, black pepper and cumin.

Hi, friends! Leslie here, and I’m amped to be back on the MDA blog again—this time I’m coming at ya with a delicious recipe I whipped up using Primal Kitchen™ Mayo!
I’m a mayo fanatic. I used to feel gross for having an obsession with the condiment (because of the unhealthy industrial seed oils and the shame from mayo haters), but now that Primal Kitchen has launched the world’s first healthy mayo—made with pure avocado oil—I don’t have to feel like such a weirdo for dipping my fries in its creamy magic.
Just when you thought butter couldn’t get any better, there’s anchovy butter. It’s an umami-rich secret ingredient that transforms simply cooked meat and veggies into an amazing meal. Don’t worry, anchovy butter won’t make your food taste fishy. Rather, it gives everything it touches a subtle, savory flavor boost. Meat tastes meatier. Veggies taste bolder.
A batch of anchovy butter can be kept in the fridge (or freezer) and sliced as needed. Melt it over steak and roasted and raw vegetables. Use it to sauté just about anything. When you have anchovy butter in the fridge, elevating a meal from good to great is so much easier. Don’t worry about fancy sauces or seasonings – just come home, throw your steak on the grill and your veggies in a pan. Then smother it all in luscious anchovy butter. It doesn’t get much easier, or much tastier, than that.
