Monday was taco salad night over here. Since I don’t eat grains anymore, I skip the chips and just use crunchy lettuce. I know, to chip-eaters, that probably does not sound like a good trade, but I swear it works. I also sub in greek yogurt for sour cream, and I make my own taco seasoning to avoid preservatives and junky stuff like maltodextrin that seems to be even in the higher quality brands.
The problem with not cooking for a family of four or so, is that there’s no way my household will consume a whole pound of ground beef or a jar of salsa in a timely manner unless we try really hard. And I’ll be honest, we’re not great about leftovers around here. I made a point of re-purposing the taco leftovers though–I didn’t want to throw it out.
So I made a taco themed grilled cheese on coconut flour flatbread. It was great! It’s not really a recipe…but here’s what I did…

I made Coconut flour flatbread (I didn’t add pizza seasoning, but I did add a tablespoon of nutritional yeast—parmesan cheese is better though).

There’s no great pic of this—it’s just not pretty!
News/Notes: It’s just another manic workday around here! Thanks for the baby shower suggestions! I’m not much for those kinds of parties myself, but I really want to make it nice for Diane. I feel like it’s a way I can show her how happy we are for them to be starting their family.
Tonight was yoga and wine night—not really together, but I’m teaching yoga at a winery, so it’s symbolic of how great both of those things are, right?!
Random side note: if you asked me a question in the comments in the last few days, they all got answered today because I realized the email reply function was not working—so when I replied earlier to comments they were not posting or being sent via email. I’m not ignoring you, I promise!
Tomorrow I will see my trainer bright and early (6am), and I’ll work most of the day, do a webinar, and meet with a client.
What about you?
Are you good at eating or repurposing leftovers?
