What do you turn to after a workout? If you’re in the mood to switch up your routine, then these post workout recovery roasted potato tacos are for you!
Roasted Potato Tacos with Eggs – Post Workout Recovery Fuel
Why hello there!
I figured it’s about time I show face here again since it’s been a solid month! My apologies… I was learning how to keep a tiny human alive (more on the birth of our little pineapple, here!)
Thankfully, these tacos came into my life at just the perfect time to get back in the kitchen and spark the fire that got me to blog in the first place!
Now, why Roasted Potato Tacos for Post-Workout Recovery?
First off, when I think about the workout of being a mom these days with a newborn who only likes to chill when she’s being pushed in a stroller, I’m logging about 7-10 miles a day!
While it’s certainly no marathon training, coupled with breastfeeding I’m in need of a delicious source of fuel when I get back from our morning stroll.
And, if you are training or just simply working out with vigor, these tacos certainly are for you.
For instance, did you know:
Potatoes provide the carbohydrate, potassium, and energy you need to perform at your best.
A medium potato with the skin provides just 110 calories, no fat, no sodium and no cholesterol, 30 percent of your daily value of vitamin C and more potassium than a medium banana.
Carbohydrate is important for optimal mental and physical performance. A medium potato with the skin has 26 grams of quality carbohydrate.
With as much — if not more — of several essential vitamins and minerals found in spaghetti, brown rice or whole wheat bread, potatoes are a smart addition to your other favorite performance foods (compared on a per-serving basis).
Now, if that’s not enough to convince you to give potatoes a try, maybe this cute little hand is?
Case and point, even a one month old is PUMPED to try these Roasted Potato Tacos, too!
Don’t worry, I won’t keep you hanging any longer, here they are!
