Made healthy tacos for dinner

Friday, June 01, 2012

Made an old Friday Dinner favorite Healthier:

swapped out ground beef for chicken, regular tacos for whole wheat, and of course a little Low fat cheddar cheese on top.

Whole wheat tortillas, shredded chicken breast, black beans, LF cheddar cheese salsa, lettuce & tomatoes. Taste better than the not so healthy taco. Hmmm, maybe I could actually eat this way 4ever!

    Yum! Here's a really healthy version of salsa that I make if you're interested...
2 tomatoes, diced
1/3 onion, diced
1 bundle cilantro, chopped fine
1 cup frozen sweet corn
1/2 cup fat free Italian dressing

Mix everything together well. Now you have a delicious, fresh tasting salsa to go on anything! I like to put mine on chicken or heap it onto a burger instead of having it on a bun.

No butter

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Started cooking without adding butter for flavor, to almost every dish. Just seasoned with fresh herbs. Surprisingly, I did not miss it nor did my family.

Baby steps.

    Awesome NSV! you can also just add sml amts now & then as we still do need fats in our "diets" you know? :) Oils, like olive, canola, sesame seed, etc are good for yr heart as well

    Hooray! I've noticed that as I have cut out butter and greasy foods in general out of my diet, when I eat them now they taste nasty and leave a bad aftertaste. Same thing with junky American chocolates. Good for you for eating clean!

    I use sprays (there is a butter flavor which is good) and olive oil. saves a lot of calories and is healthier

    Good for you! Sometimes I miss it and allow myself some -- but it has to be totally worth it, like on top of really good bread. Also, congratulations on your first blog post - I hope you enjoy the camaraderie. SparkPeople are so supportive - for example, thank YOU for sending positive energy my way on my interview yesterday!
