mmmmm I love Mexican food. I blame it on growing up in the south where good Mexican food is on every street corner. The other day I was craving tacos. Only problem was I didn’t have any taco shells. I wasn’t worried too much about ground meat of some kind because I had some leftover beans that I could easily turn into refried beans. [Read more…]
I know, right? Who doesn’t stick bacon at the top of their list??? Well…me.
Avocado is my favorite. I loooooooooooooove it. I want it on my salads, on my burgers, with chicken, with a nice drippy egg yolk…..yummm. [Read more…]
As someone who was told by her dietician to watch her carbs, swap whites for browns and leave the sugar alone by my dietician, I’m always looking for lower carb and whole grain and/or wheat options to make quick and easy meals out of.
Since watching my carbs and doing the swap-outs I have tried various low carb wraps and tortillas. Each of them have their very own distinct flavor. Some of them had that earthy grain taste while others had a bit of grit to them. There’s really isn’t one brand that stands out in my head. Because of this I use lettuce for my wraps or when it is taco night I will eat the corn taco shells. I do believe in the 80/20 rule and whatever your beliefs are, corn is either ok or it will fall into that 20%. I’m not here to argue what food is best and what food isn’t. While I do make a lot of things from scratch, my own taco and burrito shells are not one of them.
One of the most difficult challenges I faced these last few days is my inability to eat pizza. Maybe it’s just the convenience of having this frozen delight in my freezer, knowing it 20 minutes I will have a meal that I didn’t have to put much effort into.
