With summer just around the corner, more and more of us are looking more closely at what we're eating. We're looking to shed the winter weight and feel great during the sunny months.
Just because you're trying to make a lifestyle change – perhaps sticking to a Whole30 or Paleo diet – doesn't mean you have to give up your favorite foods. For me, Mexican food is one of my absolute faves.
Mexican food almost always comes with grains, whether that is rice, corn or flour. If you're trying to avoid grains, you might be scratching your head on how to enjoy Mexican food.

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Recipe
Yields: 4-6 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 30 minutes
- 4 sweet potatoes, cut lengthwise
- 1 pound ground beef (grass-fed if possible)
- 1 organic red bell pepper, diced
- 3 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
- Additional salt and pepper to taste, if desired
- Fresh organic lettuce, shredded
- Avocado, chopped
- Organic tomatoes, chopped
- Salsa (try my fermented red salsa or green salsa)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place the sweet potatoes (cut lengthwise) face down on a baking sheet. Brush the backs with olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper. Place in the oven for 30 minutes.
- While potatoes are cooking, place ground beef in a large skillet and cook on medium high heat, until browned. Add in spices and diced red pepper. Cook until bell pepper softens (3-4 minutes). Add a few tablespoons of water if needed to keep the meat from drying out.
- To serve, use a fork to flatten the inside of the roasted potato slightly. Add desired amount of ground beef mixture and top with fresh lettuce, chopped tomatoes, avocado, salsa and cilantro.
