Taco Tuesday Recipe

Taco Tuesday for dinner tonight, anyone? If you’re like me and want to consistently prepare healthy meals for your family, but are also often short on time because you’re busy with work and your kids, then this recipe is for you!

Defrost organic ground turkey meat and brown it in a pressure cooker for about 5 minutes. Then add 12 teaspoons of low sodium taco seasoning and stir in 15 ounces of salsa including fresh organic tomatoes, tomato paste, peppers, onions and garlic powder and stir it all together.

Then turn the pressure cooker on high and let the meat cook for about 15 minutes or until it releases steam and beeps.

While the meat is cooking, bake whole grain tortilla shells in the oven at 325 degrees for 6-7 minutes.

Next, slice up organic avocado, tomatoes and lettuce and shred or buy pre-shredded organic and low-fat Monterey Jack cheese and carrots.

Once the meat and taco shells are done, then build your tacos and fill each shell with the meat, avocado, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and carrots and before you know it, you and your family will be ready to eat a delicious and healthy meal!

Healthy Protein and Vegetable Meal Ideas

Two important elements of any healthy eating plan include vegetables and protein. Therefore, I love marinating and baking chicken and making healthy salads, as these are staples you can build into any lunch or dinner meal and are easy to make when you’re busy trying to balance work and home life. And if you’re vegetarian or have any other dietary restrictions, you can always substitute any of the foods you see here with alternatives that fit your preferences.

The recipe for this meal includes a low-sugar, Hawaiian BBQ marinade, paired with organic, boneless, skinless chicken. After applying the marinade to each piece, you bake the chicken in the oven for 20-25 minutes on each side at 425 degrees.

The salad includes organic spinach and mixed greens, sliced cherry tomatoes, avocado and low-fat shredded cheese. And I usually like to top my salads with a low-fat balsamic vinaigrette or avocado dressing.

I hope this idea is helpful and you’re able to incorporate healthy proteins and vegetables into your meals as well!
