Oh, hello, breakfast of champions!
I’m a true believer in the power of breakfast, and feel strongly about beginning the day with tacos. I’ve never been one to skip breakfast, and numerous studies point to the metabolic and nutritional importance of eating a well-rounded meal in the morning. For me, the perfect breakfast consists of highly nutritious vegetables and eggs. I’m a huge fan of scrambles, frittatas, vegetable hashes – you name it, so long as I can put an egg in, on or around it.
But the breakfast taco? Steamy hot veggies with black beans, a sunny-side-up (or scrambled) egg, salsa and avocado wrapped neatly in a corn tortilla? For me, this is the type of breakfast to be excited about!
Here are the nutrients in these delicious tacos:
- Kale: Chock full of antioxidants, vitamins A, C and K, and fiber.
- Sweet potatoes: Full of antioxidants, vitamins A and C, and slow-burning carbs.
- Black beans: Full of fiber and amino acids. Can help lower cholesterol.
- Avocado: Full of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (polyunsaturated healthy fat). Omegas are great for healthy brain function.
- Eggs: Protein! Studies show starting the day with protein helps bring balance to your digestive system, and keeps you feeling full longer.
Runny eggs – let’s discuss. Are you crazy about runny egg yolks? I know I am, but I also know I wasn’t a fan until fairly recently, so I can totally appreciate the lack of love for them. For those of you who don’t dig them, you can definitely make a scramble out of the vegetables. The tacos will definitely be easier to eat as a scramble (although I don’t know about you, but I get a ridiculous amount of enjoyment out of messy food). The point is, we have options.
Speaking of options, you know what else you can do with these tacos? You can add your favorite cheese, whip up a fancy guacamole or homemade salsa, or eat them with plain yogurt or sour cream on top. You can also add any of your favorite veggies to the vegetable portion of the recipe. Leftovers from the night before? Toss them in, my friends. Bacon, ham or sausage? Go wild!
One of the many pleasant features of these breakfast tacos is they don’t take very long to prepare. The most time-consuming part is sautéing the veggies, but you can heat the beans and tortillas while you’re doing so. Once you get the taco craft down pat, you can whip these up in around 30 minutes. To me, that means these can easily be a weekday breakfast, so long as you set aside enough time before work to make them happen. And if not, they’re a quick weekend breakfast to get you all amped up for your comings and goings…or super-mellow and relaxing couch time, cause that’s cool too.
And without further ado, here’s what you need to make these radical tacos happen:
