HEALTHY CINCO DE MAYO TACOS 4 WAYS & A MARGARITA RECIPE!

WHAT IS CINCO DE MAYO?
Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. The day, which falls on Sunday, May 5 this year, is also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

THE KEY TO FEELING FULL AND SATISFIED AFTER BREAKFAST…

Do you find that when you have a fruit smoothie or a simple bowl of oats in the morning you’re hungry just an hour or two later?  YES?  Most of us do- this is because you’re eating mainly carbohydrates.  Carbohydrate rich meals spike your blood sugar and then you crash down, causing you to crave more of the same.  Try switching up your first meal of the day to focus on quality protein, veggies, fiber and healthy fats.  This will ensure that you are satisfied and stay full longer!

MAKE AHEAD LOW CARB TACO BREAKFAST BOWL

32g protein, 12g carbs, 21g fat, 7g fiber

5 Servings

Get this:

1 1/4 lbs Extra Lean Ground Beef (Grass fed beef or pasture raised turkey)

2 1/2 Tbsps Chili Powder

1 1/4 tsps Oregano

1 1/4 tsps Cumin

1 1/4 tsps Black Pepper

1 1/4 tsps Sea Salt

2/3 cup Water

5 Egg (Cooked to your preference)

5 cups Baby Spinach (chopped)

2 Red Bell Pepper (diced)

2 Tomato (Romas, diced)

1 Avocado (sliced or mashed (1.5 oz per serving)

Do this:

  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add the ground beef (or turkey) and sauté to cook through. Break up the meat as it is cooking. Once it is cooked through add the chili powder, oregano, cumin, black pepper and sea salt. Add the water and sauté for another minute as you mix well. Reduce heat to the lowest setting and let simmer while you prepare the rest or until all water has been absorbed.
  2. Divide the meat into 5 servings and store in the fridge for the week. Chop the bell pepper and tomato and place in a container in the fridge.
  3. When ready to eat, cook up your egg and slice your avocado. (Keep the pit in the avocado to reduce browning.)
  4. Place 1 cup of spinach in a bowl. Top with diced green pepper, tomato, mashed avocado, taco meat and fried egg. Enjoy!
