A Healthy Mexican Feast+Send Bobbi to SDRR
That’s right, Hubby and I celebrated
Cinco Sies De Mayo tonight! I have been eyeing the Mexican feast that Kath and Kelsey had the other night. I tried to replicate it as much as possible with a little of my Mexican heritage of course ;)
The meal was taco salads. I had just about everything on hand all I had to pick up at the store was these organic corn chips.
- Spinach bed
- Topped with a cooked mix of bell pepper,onions, white shoepeg corn(the only thing we had in the pantry), tomato, kidney and black beans spiced with oregano,chili powder.
- 3/4 cup of Ground Turkey, seasoned with McCormick’s Taco Seasoning
- Kelsey’s corn salsa( I added about 4 chunks of mango)
- 3 avocado slices
- light sour cream
- Chips for dipping
The corn salsa
And of course nothing tops a Mexican Feast like a Margarita(Virgin).
I saw this recipe and of course mixed it up a bit.
- 1/4 cup fresh squeezed OJ
- 4 chunks of frozen mango
- 1/4 frozen mixed berry
- 1/2 packet of strawberry kiwi Crystal Light packet
- 6 iced cubes
all mixed up in the wonderful Vita-Mix
BEST Margarita ever, can’t wait to try it with some Tequila!
In case you were curious, here is what Hubby had.
It wasn’t as healthful, but not too bad. Veggie refried pinto beans, light cheese, shoepeg corn and ground turkey.
So I think I failed at my first attempt at the Raw Wednesday Challenge! I guess I am going to have to try again next Wednesday. I did do a little bit of research and am going to pick up a book at the Library tomorrow to get more information. Here is what I ate for lunch today and my afternoon snack.
A RAW Salad, I guess I didn’t completely fail!
Avocado and Tomato Sammy, filled with spinach and Light Laughing Cow Cheese.
PM Snack: Brown Rice Cake with AB and some Berries.
