Mexican-Style Breakfast Tacos with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

breakfast taco

There are two things you should know about me:

I love breakfast. I love avocado.

Like, if you put avocado on a packing peanut, I think I could eat it. Is that weird?

If you wake up just 30 minutes earlier, you can make these, wrap them in tinfoil, bring them to work, and have your co-workers drooling over your shoulder, while you eat these healthy breakfast tacos.

I don’t know why it JUST dawned on me to make tacos and wrap them in tinfoil and save them for later, but I figured it out recently (even though I order tacos all the time on Seamless and they come wrapped in tinfoil – DOH!), but now, I’m hooked.

I made some tacos from Molly Yeh’s new cookbook, Molly On The Range (recipe coming next week!), and had leftover tortillas, so I decided to make breakfast tacos. Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day, but I never take the time to assemble breakfast like this.

Usually, I have an acai bowl, a smoothie with almond butter, or avocado on toast – all take less than 10 minutes to make. Although these tacos take 30 minutes, the reward is totally worth it.

If you’re carb- conscious, serve these tacos in a bowl or as lettuce wraps. And if you prefer a little sauce on top – add salsa and ditch the pico de gallo or drizzle with a healthy ranch (like Tessemae’s.)

Happy breakfasting!

These look amazing!! I'd also sprinkle some cilantro on top (I love the stuff!), and Boyfriend would ask for some corn in the salsa, but this would be a total hit for a weekend brunch! :-)

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
