Don't you just LOVE tacos?
I'm from Texas and we do tacos all day long!
However here in California, I've noticed everything is burrito this and burrito that. It's A LOT of food.
Portion sizes matter and so do the contents of the tacos & burritos! This is why I opt for tacos vs burritos. Have I ever mentioned I love food? Maybe my brand of Nutrition's My Life gave it away but I LOVE food! AND I don't want a bland taco, I want one that tastes really good and hits the spot!

Warmer weather means my oatmeal breakfast days are slowly dwindling down and the cooler breakfasts of smoothies + yogurt parfaits are coming out! Breakfast in this house is a BIG deal and when I say BIG deal... I mean HUGE deal in my kids eyes! I mean they don't fall far from the apple tree if you know what I mean!?!
Breakfast is MY jam! I HAVE to eat it! I don't do well skipping it and well, studies back me up (1, 2)... Eating breakfast can help stabilize your blood sugar which will help with reducing inflammation, may assist with your weight loss goals by helping kick start your metabolism, and will help you focus + have the energy to do what needs to get done!!
If I can't eat breakfast in time I typically grab a banana and cashews or walnuts to at least give me something to help me out! (you don't want to be around me if I haven't had breakfast! I can get #hangry because my body depends on it to stabilize my blood sugars and to give me the fuel I need to start my day!)
