National Nutrition Month Tip #5:
When in doubt, tacos.
Having a hard time deciding what to make for dinner? Keep these ingredients on hand for quick, simple and satisfying tacos:
•whole grain or sprouted tortilla (or go green with collard wraps!)
•black beans (or other beans of choice)
•red onions (or other onions)
•red, orange, or yellow peppers
•any greens or other veggies- spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, anything goes!
•spices (lots of spices!)
Sauté onions and peppers (add a little garlic for more nutrient power). After onions are translucent add beans and veggies. Add lots of healing spices like cumin, chili powder and paprika (all pack a huge nutrient punch). Warm your tortilla then add the bean mixture and top with avocado, salsa and cilantro. Want omega 3’s with it? Sprinkle with hemp seeds. It’s the most deliciously satisfying plant-based meal that takes less than 15 minutes to prep and cook. Plus you’re getting lots of plant-based protein, disease-fighting phytonutrients, healing antioxidants and 8-10 grams of gut-loving fiber per taco. That’s what I call a perfect meal.
