What it’s like eating only tacos for a week

Tacos for breakfast, tacos for lunch, tacos for dinner...even tacos for dessert!

Right after I moved in to my new house, the people at Hy-Vee asked if I wanted to eat only tacos for a week. I didn’t have to think twice.

Fortunately, I documented the whole experience. Enjoy my episode of For A Week.


There was a lot that hit the cutting room floor. A special thank you to my friend Jessica, a cooking instructor and culinary expert, for helping me shop. She introduced me to authentic ingredients that really enhanced my tacos. Jessica even gave me a simple guacamole recipe! Check out her website.

Like I mention in the video, I did need to make a switch from flour tortillas. I had seven tortillas in the first two days, and all of them were sticking to my gut. The veggies helped push things through.

Hy-Vee’s HelpfulSmilesTV website has many For A Week episodes. Watch others as they eat only baby food, charcuterie, and bacon for seven days.

Hungry for tacos? Seriously, you will find plenty of free recipes on Hy-Vee’s website.
