Taco night might be our favorite here. It’s really the perfect meal for a large family , any family really, because everyone can pile what they want on their taco (our only rule is that they have a protein and one or more vegetables on their plate. It’s also really easy to prepare, which is a bonus for me, and it fills everyone up. Use whatever kind of protein you like; this meal can so easily be whatever you want it to be. Carnivore, omnivore, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, you name it! I usually use black beans, soy crumbles, or a combination of both. I saute them with a bag of frozen organic corn. Trader Joe’s has a nice box of 12 taco shells made with organic corn. Add a nice salad on the side and the meal is complete! You can see the picture below of my latest salad dressing obsession. I try to stay away from dairy, but a little bit of this on your salad goes a long way. It is really delicious! I picked it up at Publix. Also pictured are some of my favorite salad greens from Trader Joe’s. It is a nice combination of organic baby greens ready to eat.
All of the following deliciousness made it onto our table this evening:
- salad (tomato, roasted pumpkin seeds, mixed Power Greens, artichokes, olives, red onions with white cheddar dressing)
- black beans/soy crumbles/corn
- shredded cheese
Have a great night!
