Tasty Taco Tuesday Part 2
Happy Tasty Tuesday Fit Diva
Last week, I sent out a new lighter way to make nachos with sweet peppers. YUM! This week, lets remake the high carb side dish Mexican Rice. Nothing wrong with rice at all. However by the time you add all the carbs up from: Chips…which we should try to have more will power over and only have 8-10…I KNOW I KNOW, seems impossible. However, if you set your mind-set knowing you can still have some chips and stay on fit diva track….practice makes perfect. Ok back to adding up carbs. Chips, Margaritas, tortilla…now rice. Holy Crazy Carb Overload. Carbs and calories add up Fast.
Food is a number game
Healthy Mexican idea menu for dinner at home
Appetizer or starter if you have guests: last weeks nacho recipe
Main: chicken or lean ground beef tacos
Use small tortilla shells around 20g carb each. Have one tortilla and one taco in a roman lettuce wrap
Shredded lettuce, Pico de Gallo, jalapeno, onion, chopped avocado and light cheese
Light Greek Yogurt for Sour Cream
Hot sauce or salsa of choice.
At this point, you have kept everything in balance as long as you keep portion in control
Now….create this Super Diva-licious side dish made from Cauliflower Rice. You can even just use it on another night with a different menu. Example:
- Cod baked with lime and cilantro
- Spinach salad
- Mexi Cauli Rice
As always Fit Divas, watch your portion and enjoy what you eat so you NEVER diet again!!!
All the flavors from traditional Mexican Rice without all the carbs! This lightened version will definitely satisfy your taste buds & Fit diva figure!
