Clean Taco Mix

When I am eating clean one of the number one things I crave is tacos!! I created a dish that not only fills my craving but has actually taken over as my taco mixture of choice.


Start off by making quinoa. Follow the directions on the bag to make as much or as little as you like. I put some cumin in the water to help flavor the quinoa for the taco mixture.

While the quinoa is cooking sauté chopped garlic, onion and bell pepper. When the veggies have cooked down add in ground turkey or tofu (ground tofu pictured below) and season with garlic salt, cumin and a dash of chili powder. Mix the quinoa in when it is fully cooked and your taco creation is complete.


I like to eat mine in whole wheat scoops, topped off with guacamole and some shredded cabot cheese (lactose free!)

Check out the fish taco post for my guac recipe.


Fish Tacos

While browsing around Safe Harbor Seafood Market this weekend and saw a gorgeous grouper filet just begging to be thrown on my grill. The rest of the dish came together as I walked around the produce section of my local Publix. The smell of peaches following me through the isles was intoxicating! I knew they had to be incorporated in some sort of fresh salsa.

I ended up grilling the grouper after tossing it in some lime juice, cilantro and Louisiana seasonings. To top off my grilled filet I made fresh guacamole and pineapple, peach salsa.
