Loaded sweet potatoes (or any potatoes) are one of those meals that can be eaten anytime of the day. I’ve given up the notion that certain foods need to be eaten at a certain time of day. Whenever I get sick of eggs for breakfast, my go-to is this loaded sweet potatoes recipe with taco meat, guacamole, salsa and all of the fixings. It can totally be customize to your taste preference.
I also think loaded sweet potatoes are great because you can pack in all of the nutrients you need: carbs, protein, and healthy fats. You can make it work for whatever type of diet you follow, and again, is so perfect for all you meal preppers out there.
You can top it with anything and everything you. The toppings can fit anyone’s dietary needs. So this can be made Whole30 compliant, paleo friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, and etc.
For my meal preppers: I recommend baking a bunch of sweet potatoes at the beginning of the week, making a large batch of the taco meat, and then topping it with your favorite toppings throughout the week. You can literally turn it into different meals each day because the different toppings you use can completely change the flavor profile.
Also, if you are packing this for lunch, pack the toppings separately so you are not left with a soggy and/or mushy mess. No one wants soggy loaded sweet potatoes. Trust me. No one does.
