During our graduate school winter break we took a trip to Los Angeles to visit Marnina’s uncle. We were eager to experience Los Angeles’ vibrant culinary scene. In addition to the usual Malibu, Venice Beach and Santa Monica sightseeing, Marnina’s uncle provided us with quite the culinary tour. We sampled Indian, vegan Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, and American cuisine. We even hit up the famous Magnolia Bakery (yes, the banana cream pudding was UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS). While partaking in one of L.A.’s new fads, personal piea, at a cafe called SimpleThings, Marnina grabbed the menu (she loves to bring home menus). The menu included many delectable sounding sandwiches. The combination of ingredients in each sandwich sounded so gourmet and unique that we anticipated returning to the shop and trying their sandwiches. Unfortunately we were not able to make it back before we left town. To compensate for our loss (and because Marnina saved the menu), we vowed to recreate the best sounding sandwich on their menu – The Sweet Potato.

A healthy breakfast should start with a mixture of fiber and protein, both of which contribute to satiety. Individuals with Crohn’s Disease often have to limit their fiber (and in some cases, their fat intake), which limits their ability to consume avocados. Eggs can also be a trouble food if eaten in high amounts, especially because a decent amount of fat is stored in their yolks. However, if these foods are eaten in moderation, they can be paired to create a delicious breakfast combination. If you want to mix up your breakfast routine, try out this new breakfast food: the Eggvocado!
