South Beach Diet that is - man I WISH I was on the real beach! I could SO use the heat. Although we are supposed to get some warm weather here in the next couple days 23C (73 F).
Nice warm Easter weekend. Yay! I always remembered playing outside with a new jump rope or hula hoop each Easter as a child, most of our recent Easters have been way too cold for that!
Day 9 of South Beach Diet today.
While doing the South Beach Diet (SBD), I have been trying out new recipes. Last night I made Taco salad. I know Mexican food is very popular in the US, but not as much here. We have had tacos before, but never in salad form. It was a hit all around! Great because I can't have taco shells at the moment.
My recipe was based on Kalyn's Taco Salad recipe. If you are looking for SBD recipes, Kalyn's Kitchen is THE place to go!
I used pinto beans, homemade taco seasoning, light caesar dressing and added diced avacoda and tomatoes to my finished product. I grated the cheese on the fine side so that I used much less than we normally would have. I also really loaded our plates with salad and went easy on the meat/bean mixture.
Even my picky son loved it! I think this recipe will be added to the monthly roster :)
