Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato

Everyone knows that kids typically love taco flavored items.  That goes for me too when it comes to favorite foods. It is so easy to customize a taco flavored item, and of course, it is going to be a favorite when you put this on the table for your kids.  A stuffed sweet potato allows you to get your kids to eat more nutrient-dense items, while being easily able to stick to your own preferred Paleo or Whole 30 dietary needs.

I love being able to make a meal that is easy for the whole family.  Baked sweet potatoes are easy to use as a carrier for other flavors, and if you want to plan ahead, you can even easily bake them in large batches and have ready to grab and load up at meal-time later in the week.  In fact, sweet potatoes are a favorite easy to prep ahead meal item!
