Soft Tacos with Homemade Salsa

I love mexican food! However I don’t love the bloat, headache, and stomach pains I get after eating it at restaurants. To satisfy my craving without doing any harm to my body, I make it myself with natural, healing ingredients. Here is my soft taco and salsa recipe!

Ingredients (Taco):

blog soft taco

  • Small Ezekiel tortillas
  • 1 pound of fat free ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 1 can no salt added black beans
  • 2 shucks of corn (not cooked)
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1-2 large avocadoes, sliced
  • Coconut oil
  • Pink sea salt/pepper
  1. Cook meat on a medium-high skillet with 1 tbsp. coconut oil and salt/pepper. Once cooked remove from heat and add in some cilantro.
  2.  Prepare the corn by removing the skins. Use a knife to carefully shave off the corn kernels into a large separate bowl.
  3. Build your taco by heating up the tortillas. Place spinach first, followed by meat, feta cheese, black beans/corn, tomato, avocado and topped with my homemade salsa (recipe below)!

Ingredients (Salsa)

  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 deseeded jalapeno (optional)
  • 1 lime
  • bundle of cilantro (1.5 cups)
  • 2 tbsp. cumin
  • Pink sea salt/pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees on broil. Place four tomatoes on a sheet in the oven for 5 minutes (turn at half way). Remove the tomato skin and core.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and add more lime, salt/pepper if needed.
  3. Use beanito chips to dip in the salsa! They are made from beans and are a great alternative to tortilla chips. Not to mention, the texture and taste surpass the tortilla chips by a landslide!

Why is white processed Sugar “Bad” for you?

Are you all ready to hear the reasons behind why white sugar has such a bad rap?

People all around the world are cutting out or refraining from sugar because they know that it can cause their body to produce fat. But how or why does sugar become a fat origin in the body?

White cane sugar comes from a plant, then it is put through a processor where chemicals are added and then heated. Processing the sugar results in a TOXIC substance.

When we consume this processed sugar, our bodies immediately realize there is a toxin entering and begins to form fat cells around the sugar to prevent it from poisoning the body. Therefore, the more sugar you eat, the more fat cells will develop.

Here are the best sugar options to choose from:

  • Coconut sugar
  • Raw honey
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Stevia
  • Fruit
