Sweet Potato Tacos

I decide this week to prep and cook everything I need for the week. That way I could just assemble and reheat my food quickly and easily. One of my favorite meals so far has been these delicious Sweet Potato Tacos.

On my cooking day I baked four to five sweet potatoes and cook up some taco seasoned ground turkey meat to have available for the week.  This meal is packed with flavor, protein, and vitamins. One medium sweet potato has almost 400% of your daily allowance for vitamin A!
