Taco Salad with Avocado

This healthy version of tacos can be enjoyed by every member of your family…mine ask for it often! You can’t go wrong with lean grass-fed protein from beef and turkey; an abundance of nutrients and antioxidants from the greens and veggies; and essential healthy fats and fibre from the avocado. Wow, this is one meal that will leave you Nourished! I have also included a homemade recipe for Taco seasoning, which is a perfect way to leave behind the processed chemicals and just use real food :-) I make a jar full and keep it on hand, ready to use. Enjoy!

Roasted Veggie Wrap

When I know this yummy lunch is coming my way, my mouth is watering way before lunch time! Root Vegetables are known for their high fibre, vitamin C, beta-carotene, potassium and magnesium. As well, they are a great complex carb, that will keep your energy and blood sugar stable. When this is made with a whole grain tortilla and dark green leafy greens, you have yourself one amazing meal! If I know I’m eating these healthy carbs for lunch, I will balance this with a protein shake for breakfast (filled with beautiful berries of course!)

Enough chatter, here’s how I make it.

Leftover Heaven

I often plan my meals around what will taste yummy as leftovers. I know that sounds funny, but hear me out. I looooove roasted veggies, and they’re even better warmed up the next day! Then having a lean protein leftover from last nights (healthy :-)) meal can make lunch the next day a snap. All you need to add is the veggies!

Here are two of my favourite leftovers used as lunch the next day, enjoy!
