Between the hours of 11:30am and 12:30pm, you can usually find me running around the kitchen trying to get a creative lunch together for Kolbe, sometimes while nursing Annabelle, and eventually eating lunch myself after the littles are fed and happy.
Even though my early afternoons are busy, I still strive to nourish myself the best way I can so that I can have enough energy to take on the rest of the day. There's a great many things that I skimp on in life, however, a meal is not one of them. I have never been and probably will never be one of those people that "forgets" to eat no matter how busy I am. Food is just too good to me to pass up and I enjoy planning out my meals the night before so that I'm not caught in a pinch when I'm distracted or in a hurry.
With that said, here is one of my more recent lunches. I've been craving Mexican food lately, so I took it upon myself to make a healthy lunch with a Mexican flare. It is very delicious and not to mention quite filling!
This is not so much a recipe, but rather a method. Just pile all of the ingredients on a bed of butter lettuce (my favorite!) and add whatever else you might fancy.
Healthy Taco Bowl
- Handful of butter lettuce (or lettuce of choice)
- Ground beef (preferably Grassfed) browned with spices of your choice. I used fresh lime juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
- Grated Colbly Jack cheese
- Fresh Salsa
- Sour cream or Plain whole milk Greek yogurt
- Sliced black olives
Pile ingredients on lettuce and enjoy!
