Mexican Breakfast Bowl with Spiralized Potatoes

Happy last day of July!

Today, I’m setting my intentions for August. I’ve been pretty good about doing that consistently this year. At the end of each month, I spend 10 minutes that morning just writing down some intensions for the following month.

Do you ever do this?

I keep a little notebook by my desk and I look back on the previous month and see how I did and if I practiced those intentions. It’s a fun little exercise and is about as ‘spiritual’ as I really ever get!

I figured I’d share my August intentions with all of you, since it is the last day of the month and I have to do them anyway!

August Intentions

  • Slow down and appreciate these last two months of pregnancy – and finally schedule the prenatal massage that Lu got me for my 30th birthday (I’ve been too busy to schedule it!)
  • Prioritize my mind – try a little meditation, relax, let the mind wander without feeling like I always have to be productive
  • Show others you care – I’ve been running around like crazy trying to get myself prepared for this baby that I haven’t seen my friends nearly enough.

And that’s it! I usually just set three of them, because anything else is just overkill! Sometimes, I only set 1 or 2, if it’s a big intention. I think September’s intention, for example, will literally be “Be a present mother”. A mother, ah!

Mexican Breakfast Bowl with Spiralized Potatoes

NOW, I’m bringing up intentions because last month one of my intentions was to cook more for me – cook more things that are easy and things I love that may not be anything special, but feel special to me because they’re flavors and ingredients I like.

I love everything Mexican themed, because I love Mexican flavors and ingredients. After visiting the North Fork with friends and having a ‘Mexican breakfast bowl,’ I knew I had to recreate it with my own spiralized twist.

And so here we have it! It’s the ultimate brunch meal, it’ll fuel you for hours and has so many flavors, textures, and colors, it’s a pleasure to make, eat, and, well, Instagram!

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the potato noodles and season with garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper. Toss well to combine, cover, and cook for 7-10 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through, uncovering to toss every couple of minutes.

Do you have any tips on how to dice up tomatoes for pico de gallo? Even with my cooking prowess, one thing I've never mastered is cutting and seeding tomatoes for picture-worthy pico de gallo! Haha. :-)
Ali Maffucci says:
A very sharp, high-quality Chef's knife!! That's 80% of the battle!
Nina says:
I "gut" my tomatoes, by removing the seeds and juicy insides, similar to a bell pepper. that way you are left with nice, drier, square dices with skin and not a juicy mess. you can probably find a why to use the guts and not be wasteful.
Sherry Baynes says:
I made it this morning for breakfast as soon as Ali posted it. We loved it! Can Ali post a bad recipe? I don't think so! I love Mexican too, but had not tried it for breakfast yet. I'll be turning over a new leaf!
Ali Maffucci says:
Aw I'm so happy to hear this! Glad you loved it!
Carol says:
I love breakfasty things for supper, and especially Mexican, so we'll be having this as our evening meal soon!
Ali Maffucci says:
I hope you do make it! Let us know what you thought :)
Phyllis Evans says:
This looks so good. I'm going to try it soon. Quick question - the recipe serves 4, yet the directions say after cooking the potatoes to transfer them to two bowls. Did you mean four bowls, so that they're ready for the remaining cooked ingredients? Or am I missing something?
Ali Maffucci says:
That was a typo, divide into four bowls! It serves 4!

you know what keeps me up at night? 🥺 the gut-wrenching mom guilt from worrying that this time is going to fly by (it is!) and I’m going to look back and wish I had made more one on one time with each my kids when they wanted it! it’s so hard to separate my time, and I’ll admit that I’m not great at finding ways and the right moments to do it. mamas out there who have 2 or more, what do you do to get more individual time with each of your kids?

maybe I’m putting too much pressure of myself in this season of life, but I can’t help feeling like I’m failing and I’m missing out on this adorable age! #proofofmom #motherhood #thisismotherhood #toddlermom
