Post Workout Recovery Meal

Recipe by Charles & Julie Mayfield, Co-authors of Paleo Comfort Foods | Recipe


The sweet potatoes give you a huge post workout carbohydrate punch to quickly restore glycogen stores and the sausage throws a little protein in the mix. The really cool thing about this recipe is its portability. Charles likes to vacuum seal and freeze servings of this to take with him to the gym. This hash is great served warm, but packs plenty of flavor if served cold also. It makes a really easy/portable snack that can easily travel with you and hold up when you are on the go.


2 tbs. coconut, avocado, or olive oil

1 sweet onion, diced

1 pound (450g) sweet potatoes, peeled & shredded/grated

1 pound (450g) cooked chicken or turkey sausage

3 tbs. cumin

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

salt and pepper to taste


1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add in oil
