It’s Taco Tuesday and we’re taco lasagna. I made this a few weeks ago and this healthy but delicious dish did NOT. It’s packed with flavor and has just enough spice to get your juices flowing (that’s what she said, just joking!)
1 lb of ground turkey
4 flat out wraps or similar
1 C. Salsa
1 TBSP chili powder
1/2 of Mexican blended cheese
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Combine ground turkey and chili powder and brown on a skillet. Once cooked add salsa.
3. Add a layer of meat mixture, 2 tortillas, 1/2 of cheese, meat mixture, 2 tortillas and remaining cheese to a 2 qt casserole dish.
Hi Friends! I figured I would share my favorite go-to green smoothie recipe for wellness Wednesday! Cooking and getting creative in the kitchen is something I’ve really grown to love over the last few years. This green smoothie recipe isn’t one I’ve ever written down, but it really just came together after a lot of trial and error. Today I’m sharing my absolute favorite green smoothie recipe that I promise you’ll love!
I don’t know why, but I feel like perfecting a smoothie recipe takes a few tries. You want them to be smooth, but not watery. You want them to be tasty, but not full of sugar. You want them to be full of veggies, but not taste like lawn clippings. I could go on and on (clearly I’m kind of picky when it comes to food!). But I love today’s recipe because it is literally fool proof and tastes amazing every time! Since this job keeps me super busy, sometimes I don’t have time to put together a real lunch, so I’ll just whip up this smoothie. It’s pretty filling and loaded with lots of good stuff, and I’m telling you the flavor is perfect! The maca powder is a great superfood and it adds the yummiest slightly nutty flavor. It isn’t overwhelming at all and it blends really well. If you’re looking to have more protein, I suggest adding in some of your favorite protein powder (Orgain is amazing!). But between the greek yogurt and the PB powder, you end up having a good amount of protein in this smoothie.
a handful of blueberries or grapes (whatever I have in the fridge at the time, both work well!)
two cups of spinach
1/4 cup of greek yogurt (I love the Fage 0% fat, but you can use whatever you want!)
1/2 teaspoon of mace powder
2 tbsp PB powder
1 tbsp ground flax seed
splash of almond milk
3-5 ice cubes (yes, that’s insanely specific lol trust me)
I put everything into my mixer and start blending it at about a 3 speed, then gradually increasing to an 8 or 9. I only blend for about a minute total (I think), but the Vitamix is super intense! You can always taste it to see if it’s well blended or if you want to add any more berries or honey for additional sweetness.
Thanks so much for reading! Sorry I couldn’t get better photos for y’all. I was working on this post at night before getting ready for our trip to Dallas for the rewardStyle conference, so it was little difficult to get pictures. But anyway, I hope y’all enjoy this green smoothie as much as I do. I’d love to hear some of your favorite smoothie recipes in the comments! Or if you have any other ideas/requests for Wellness Wednesday, we always want to hear those too. Happy Wednesday!
