#FromScratch chronicles Stephie’s nutrition [r]evolution as she switches her thought process from “where should I eat” to “what should I eat”. Follow her series as she braves the supermarket, starts to cook and explore a new way of eating.
I referenced the addition of a baked sweet spud topped with a fried egg in a recent post, so I thought I’d share it with you.
I pay attention to the tips, tricks, and suggestions left in the comment section, so PLEASE drop me a comment [HINT! HINT!].
First, I’ve discovered that I LOVE sweet potatoes [and] I don’t know why anyone would add sugar of any kind to a naturally sweet spud.
So yesterday, I popped a sweet potato in a 400F oven for about an hour, then I cracked an egg into a skillet coated with EVOO [and] dusted the egg with curry and freshly cracked pepper.
[Who knew using curry together with pepper increases the absorption of curcumin 500 fold?! I for sure didn’t!]
I flipped the egg, then slid it onto the top of the sweetest of spuds. The ooze of the yolk over the spud was divine.
Breakfast, lunch, or dinner: BOOM!
Now for the big reveal:
She has been a cancer patient, survivor, heart transplant recipient and documentary film producer.
As a child, she was successfully treated for Ewing’s Sarcoma. Her experience led her to become a nurse serving the physical, psychosocial, and educational needs of children, adolescents, and their families along the cancer trajectory.
Stephanie holds a B.A. in Psychology from Furman University, and a B.S., and M.S in Nursing from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Florida. At Dartmouth, Stephanie helped establish the Survivorship Clinic with Eric Larsen, MD and Sara Chaffee, MD. This clinic provided ongoing personal support and education for childhood cancer survivors and their families.
In April 2008, Stephanie’s heart failed as a result of the radiation and Doxorubicin used to cure her Ewing’s Sarcoma as a child. She received a heart transplant at the Cleveland Clinic.
As a result of this experience, she co-produced an award winning documentary ‘Resilient: the Story of Late Effects of Cancer Treatment’, highlighting the challenges faced by survivors, families, and friends.
Stephanie resides in the metro Atlanta area with her husband and their 12-year-old-son. The Zimmermans enjoy everything from Formula One Racing and college & NFL football to go carting, ziplining, and cycling.
