Spiralized Sweet Potato and Chorizo Breakfast Bowls

It’s time for another winning recipe from the Facebook community’s Cook-off Challenge! I’m sharing the recipe from March’s winner.

If you didn’t know this already, there’s a private Facebook community for Inspiralized. In this community of over 7,700 people, those who love to spiralize and eat healthy get together to talk about exactly that – eating healthy and #inspiralized!

I love the community (aka my #inspiralizedsquad). My favorite time of day is now when I go through the community and check to see what members are talking about and making. I’m so impressed by the delicious meals everyone’s creating!

I also love the support of the community. If anyone has a question about spiralizing or an issue cooking a particular recipe from the blog or cookbook, everyone chimes in and comes to the rescue! Of course, the community is moderated by Meaghan and myself, so we check in every day to make sure there aren’t any questions that need our urgent attention.

It’s just such a fun way to engage with all of you on a much more personal level. This isn’t anything like the main Facebook page (Facebook.com/Inspiralized) where we share announcements, recipes, and Facebook Lives. It’s a more dedicated, intimate community where people can interact with one another!

If you’re interested in joining, it’s free! I really encourage you to (click here!) – I’m amazed everyday by the creativity and inspiration from all the members!

After seeing so many people post their own original recipes, I decided to create an “Inspiralized Cook-off Challenge” to happen every other month. In these challenges, we post a theme (this theme was “a healthy spiralized breakfast”) and members have a full month to submit their recipe images and full-length recipes. The winner gets their recipe re-created on this blog, each time!

We got so many submissions, members voted, we narrowed it down to three finalists, and then finally, the winner was chosen! Congratulations to Abby Gilligan, who won with her Sweet Potato & Chorizo Breakfast Bowls.

I made very small tweaks to the recipe, so this is true to her original recipe she posed on the community. It was absolutely delicious – and it definitely saves well in the refrigerator (just wait until you’re serving it to fry the egg and top with avocado and cheese.) It would go well stuffed into a burrito too!

Meet Abby: Community Cook-off Challenge Winner

Cook-off month: March
Cook-off theme: a healthy spiralized breakfast
Cook-off recipe: Spiralized Sweet Potato and Chorizo Breakfast Bowls

What is your name and where do you live?

Abby Gilligan, I live in Louisville, Kentucky

How did you come up with this Breakfast Bowl recipe?

I love experimenting in the kitchen, and I actually came up with this recipe awhile ago- minus the spiralized sweet potato. My family and friends loved it so much and one morning when I was making it for a brunch I decided I wanted to make it a little more filling, so that gave me the idea to add spiralized sweet potato. It was definitely a hit and I have been making it that way ever since.

When did you first start spiralizing/when did you discover spiralizing?

I discovered spiralizing through the Inspiralized blog when I was searching for a recipe to make something new for dinner one night. After spending quite a bit of time looking through all of the recipes, I realized I really needed the Inspiralizer. I purchased it online a few days later!

How often do you spiralize?

Practically every night! I love it.

How has spiralizing helped you be healthier?

I am a certified personal trainer and a graduate nursing student, so in general I am a pretty health conscious person. I watch what I eat by sticking to wholesome foods that nourish my body. Sprializing really just opened up a whole new realm of creativity for me in the kitchen. I took my traditional rotating meals that I usually make and transformed them into more delicious and healthier versions. Spiralizing has definitely helped me incorporate more veggies into my diet as well.

Why did you join the Inspiralized community?

I joined the Inspiralized community because I think it is great to be a part of something that involves people like me who love to spiralize and live a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

What do you love most about the Inspiralized community?

I love that everyone is so supportive and encouraging, especially to those who are new to spiralizing and maybe even intimidated by it. I really enjoy seeing people come together and share recipes, ideas, tips, & tricks, etc.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our first Inspiralized Cook-off Challenge, and we can’t wait for our next contest, launching tomorrow for May:

Hi: I have been following your blog for a long time, and I own your inspirilzer,-- I bought it with your first cookbook. I have such a hard time with sweet potoatoes, they don't seem to spirilize very easily. The teeth don't seem to hold the back of the potaotoe almost grinding the back, I end up wasting so much. I have watched your vidio so many times. Any ideas or tips? I love the sweet potatoe, kale ban bake!! thanks Marianne

Carol Menter says:
Do you not ship to Canada or is it just Amazon that does not ship I live in Windsor Ontario and it says does not ship to Windsor.
Ali Maffucci says:
Unfortunately, we do not ship to Canada at this time.
Lynne says:
Maryanne, I also had a problem with hard sweet potatoes....I peel one, then microwave it for about 30 seconds, it works really good then. Sometimes those potatoes can be very hard...it works for me.
Cloe says:
I also have trouble with the sweet potatoes. I often will reverse it if it gets a bit ground and try to attach a bit better. It usually holds after that. Like the idea of the 30 second Mic. Will try that. Sweet potato fried rice is a favorite meal of ours. Just delicious! Often have it with breaded and baked cod and a nice salad.
Sue says:
Congrats, Abby! FYI, Ali: Abby introduced us to your blog, first cookbook and inspirilizer while visiting our home. We have purchased the inspirilizer and cookbooks for ourselves and have discovered that it is a great gift too! Looking forward to trying Abby's recipe!
Stephanie says:
Can you give a different measurement for the chorizo? I've never bought a chorizo in links, it's always just in a tube. Thanks!!

I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
