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!

Mexican Breakfast Bowl with Spiralized Potatoes

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!

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!

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

do you like easy meal ideas like this from specific grocery stores? 🤔 I'll start a hashtag for them - this one will be #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
