It’s taco Tuesday and man do I love tacos! I literally could eat them everyday and not get tired of them. But I do try my best to make them as healthy as I can, without making them skimp on that taste of yummy tacos. So I use lettuce instead of a tortilla, or sometimes I use ezekiel wraps, I have also made cauliflower wraps. I will also always substitute sour cream with greek yogurt, sometimes I switch my cheese for Go Veggie Cheese, and I switch my protein up. My go to protein is lean ground turkey, because its fast and affordable, but I also like extra lean beef or lamb, beans and lentils, or even eggs and maybe add steak or sausage to it with some salsa. Either way, I never feel like I am eating something “healthy”, they are always so good and I am not feeling like I am missing out.
These are super easy and super yummy…also super customizable. Whisk eggs together with spinach, a protein (turkey or sausage is really good, so is ham), peppers, onions, tomatoes, and add a pinch salt and pepper, some garlic if you like (I love garlic) or you could season with Mrs. Dash. Coat a muffin pan with olive or coconut oil, put egg mixture in muffin pan (add cheese if you would like, I like to put Go Veggie cheese, because it has a good amount of protein) and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Pop them out and enjoy. I like to keep them in the fridge for on the go snacks or breakfast for crazy mornings.
So my bestie makes the best headbands ever and I had to share! These headbands are not only cute for dressing up, casual wear, or keeping stubborn flyaways out of your face, but they stay put too! Yes you read that right! I have swam in the pool and the beach, played volleyball, did an obstacle race, I wear them at the gym all the time, and my daughter does gymnastics in hers and never have they ever fallen off! She makes different styles, thick or thinner ones and they come in a never ending array of designs and colors! Some have bows and others even have a little flap for you to put the clip in bow of your choice if you want. Between my daughter and I we have over 100! LOL Head over to her Facebook page Fuzzy Bands and check them out!
Okay so here is my guilty pleasure…this dip! It is beyond amazing! It is always the first thing to go in my house or when I have people over, and let me tell you it does not last long! So be warned! My Nana gave me this recipe over 8 years ago when I was having pregnancy cravings, and it is super easy to make. You will need:
Jimmy Dean Sausage- they come in different flavors, I like to use Hot.
A can of Rotel
First you need to brown the sausage.
For this ab routine, do 3-4 sets of 15-20 reps with 30-60 seconds of rest in between each set and each move. Make sure your core is engaged the whole time, and don’t forget to breath!
Move 1 Leg Raise: Lay on your back legs straight, lift your legs straight up then slowly lower toward the floor but not letting your feet hit the floor. Hold for 2-3 seconds and repeat.
I have been having trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep lately. Usually I use my lavender essential oil, but I am out and I have to order some more. So for the time being I was searching for something natural. Usually milk and a banana will help, but I cannot be doing that every night! When I was at the store picking up my earl grey, I saw this tea. I figured why not? Let me tell you, this tea is doing miracles for me! Soon after I drink it, I get sleepy, and I have been sleeping the whole night (unless a little comes into my room). The hint of vanilla is perfect, the tea is smooth and delicious. It comes in other flavors but the vanilla was calling me. I highly recommend for any night owls out there!
