I used to do Body for Life and one of my favorite meals was Cool Taco Salad. Could this be a FHM recipes too?
1/2 lb lean ground beef 1 tablespoon water 2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix, divided 2 whole wheat pita bread 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature 2 tablespoons nonfat sour cream 2 tablespoons salsa 1 cup lettuce 1 tomato, diced 1/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1 Preheat oven to 400°F.
2 In a medium skillet, brown ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain off excess fat. Add water and 1 tsp taco seasoning to the beef and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
3 Cut each pita into 8 wedges and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 7 minutes or until lightly browned.
4 While the beef is cooling, combine the remaining taco seasoning, cream cheese, sour cream and salsa in a small bowl. Mix well. Divide and spread this mixture evenly on 2 small plates.
5 Spoon a portion of the beef over the sour cream mixture, and top each with half the lettuce, tomato and cheddar cheese.
6 Place 8 baked pita wedges on each plate. Serve and enjoy!
Sounds good. since i'm trying to avoid carbs as much as i can right now, I would shred lots of lettuce and place the ingredients on top and then mix; i suppose that's more for presentation purposes. thanks for the post.
We have always made a taco salad growing up. It had a can of chili- but can I use the FP Chili or S chili from the book, I normally use ground turkey- then add some taco seasoning to it, to thicken it up. The tons of lettuce, cheese, avocado, olives, a small bit of tomatoes and then a little thousand island dressing. When we were little we used to put Doritos in it, but I was thinking a pita with some nutritional yeast, cut up and toasted in the oven to make chips. Would this work?

steffanie3: Not really, coconut flour is quite different as it absorbs lots of liquid and works best with plenty of eggs. I tend to like it mixed with other flours.

kristaflrealtor: Can I drink coffee with unsweetened almond milk at any time of the day, or just with meals? I am confused.

steffanie3: A splash of unsweetened almond milk in your coffee should be ok as a sipper

steffanie3: Welcome ladies Sometimes ladies miss the shoutbox and but still see the posts above (just a hint ). trishylalala sometimes that can be tricky, have you tried the range in the book yet?
Jan 10, 2015 12:05:20 GMT -5
steffanie3: lizs if you can post above the ingredients in a thread I can see if it can work. There is great info in the Pearl and Serene chats area about why they recommend a whey isolate that would be good to read

steffanie3: A super handy feature for finding things in the forums is within an area there is a search on the upper right and if you just start typing what you are looking forward (protein) all the posts with it in the title will automatically start coming up

lpayne: Would Van's blueberry waffles be a E selection? [br]What plan do Roma tomatoes fall in?

steffanie3: What are the Van's blueberry waffle ingredients?
Jan 13, 2015 21:50:14 GMT -5
steffanie3: Roma tomatoes are FP in moderation Be a bit more cautious in S and FP enjoy freely in E.

lpayne: The nutritional content is 2 waffles- Fat 6 grams, carbs 35 grams, 1g fiber, sugar 3 g, protein 2 g. I ate one waffles and 3 eggwhites cooked in coconut oil. Would that work for E breakfast?

steffanie3: Sorry lpayne, the ingredients are not on plan with the rice flour, potato starch, sugar. Have you tried the book pancakes? I think they are great

jostenger: Why do we peel the lemons in the Singing Canary?
Jan 18, 2015 15:20:04 GMT -5
steffanie3: You don't have to, in my experience it is way too much oil out of the peel for the drink for my tastes Might depend on the lemons as well, some might tend to be more bitter than others. I do zest most of mind to use the zest in other things.

krisnj: Good Morning! I am a beginner with THM. For breakfast today, I made the zucchini fritter with 1 tsp. coconut oil and had 1/2 c. of RF cottage cheese. Does that qualify as an S breakfast?

krisnj: New to forums! I probably should have posted my question above on a message board
Jan 23, 2015 8:35:28 GMT -5
steffanie3: The Zucchini are S with whole egg, so yes Welcome
