Eat Clean, High Protein Breakfast Hash

Turkey Hash

I had this for breakfast this morning and not only was it delicious but it has kept me going for 8 hours without anything else to eat. That is amazing for me, I usually eat every 3-4 hours.  Admittedly I am not training at the moment and am fairly sedentary due to injury, therefore having a lower carb requirement, but even so I am quite astounded!  I don’t feel light headed or grumpy, I’m ready to eat now but I am not in emergency procedures!

Turkey meat is high in protein which makes us feel fuller for longer, hence me being full of beans still and not sobbing in a corner somewhere.  Getting enough protein ensures maintenance of lean muscle mass and can keep insulin levels stable after meals. The breast meat contains less calories and fat than most other meats. Turkey also contains vitamins B6 and B12, Niacin, Choline, Selenium and Zinc boosting our immune system, mood, red blood cell formation, cognitive function and lowering cholesterol.

As turkey is fairly dry and bland I fried it in coconut all to add richness and flavour.  I topped it with avocado because, well, I just love avo and it goes really well with this dish but it would also be nice topped with a fried or poached egg.
