Equipment needed to make Spinach & Sweet Potato Egg Muffins:

● 1 muffin pan
● 1 large skillet
● 1 large mixing bowl

Ingredients:

1 tbsp avocado oil
1 sweet potato (small, peeled, chopped into cubes)
4 cups baby spinach or lacinato kale (aka Tuscan kale, Italian kale)
8 eggs
2 Tbsp water
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
