Mexican-Style Breakfast Tacos with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

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! :-)

I'm a total emotional eater. 🤡🙋🏻when I'm feeling sad, mentally tired, or just 'off,' I eat. to me, food is therapeutic and cooking is cathartic. and while yes, I often reach for something chocolatey or a literal bag of bread 🍞, I usually want a long therapy session in the kitchen and since I don't bake, it usually ends up some sort of pasta, an epic sandwich, or like today, with this flavorful salad. 🥕⁣

I woke up in a little bit of a funk and I decided to make a fancy salad for lunch and this Roasted Carrot & Beet Farro Salad with goat cheese, pecans, cranberries, and frisee lettuce was born. 30 minutes later, I feel much better, and now I'm waiting to digest so I can hop on the @onepeloton, squeeze in a quick workout and end my day early to spend it prepping for Luca's birthday festivities tomorrow. 🎉 🎈 ⁣

speaking of - anyone have any tips for building a balloon garland??? 😅
