~my thoughts about life~

Friday, October 21, 2011


Yes, I know I just began a discussion about eating healthier and losing weight.  Yes, I understand that several of you are working very hard to make a lifestyle change and you will be showing me up on my own blog.  But LOOK at this!

This was by far the best taco I've ever eaten in my life!  I made the tortilla from scratch, thanks to Grace & Gusto!  (I highly recommend trying out her recipe!)  The lettuce is from my garden and I used my own salsa (I'm out of fresh garden tomatoes.  Tear.)  Yes, there's fattening sour cream and lots of cheese on there but that's one of the reasons it was so stinkin' good! 

I am a little ashamed to admit that I'm going to be having the leftover taco for lunch today.  (Besides, the vegetable soup has made me so gassy lately!  TMI.)

That's all.  I just wanted to brag about my awesome dinner and confess that I'm not doing as well on my diet as you think I am.

Actually, I couldn't have the tortilla (sad as that is)but that taco is pretty healthy. The tortilla probably doesn't have more than 15 carbs. The sour cream and cheese are packed with calcium the beef has a lot of protein and you have vegetables in it. If you ate just one, you'd be OK. You just don't want to eat three or four.

Looks great, and thanks for sharing about your gas. I feel like I know you better now. LOL!!!

I'm with emmy, this is actually pretty good for you in moderation. Just like all the great things in life (wine, coffee, and chocolate...) :)

I'm so glad you liked the recipe!

Alright, you guys nailed me. No, I did not just have one. I had two. And they were huge. Oh, the shame!
