CARNE ASADA BOWL
Everything seems to taste better when in its in a bowl these days. This delicious meal in a bowl has fresh flavors with no lack of nutrients. This recipe is adapted slightly from Against All Grain cookbook
BUTTERNUT SQUASH TACOS
This is a great option for Meatless Monday (or Taco Tuesday) or any day really! We love the rich and creamy taste of butternut squash. Packed full of nutrients, this meal is a very quick and healthy spin on Mexican food.
CACAO MINT PROTEIN SMOOTHIE
Ladies and gents: Meet the Cacao Mint Chip Protein Smoothie. Just a couple quick fun facts about the mighty cacao bean to get you all excited n’ stuff: 1. It’s one of the most antioxidant rich foods on the planet. 2. In its raw form (= “nibs”), Cacao is unprocessed and does not contain any sugar. 3. It contains over 300 compounds including fiber, iron, magnesium, AND a “bliss” chemical that has a unique resemblance to TCH (don’t worry, you won’t get a buzz. But expect a good mood.)
CHOCOLATE AVOCADO PUDDING
While this might sound like a less-than-appetizing combination, you can take our word for it that it is absolutely delicious. Your family and guests will swoon over this rich and yummy dessert, that can double as a power snack. The avocado is undetectable but adds an amazing creaminess and is an easy way to sneak NUTRIENTS into DESSERT, that no one will be the wiser. *Note- serve these the day they are made to prevent oxidation of the avocados.
COLLARD GREEN CHICKEN ENCHILADAS
This may seem like a far stretch, but we really love this unique spin on a Mexican favorite. Collard greens make excellent "tortillas" and allow you to make a nutrient dense version of your favorite enchiladas. This recipe pairs great with cauli rice or spicy slaw and some whole beans.
COPY CAT CHIPOTLE BOWL
Anyone else LOVE the burrito bowls at Chipotle? We sure do, and so we made it our mission to make a nutrient packed version that you could enjoy with any Mexican leftovers. Feel free to get creative with this meal and change the flavors up often. Feel free to add any additional protein of your choice to this flavorful bowl.
We all love breakfast food and we all love Mexican food, right? Well, this dish combines the joys of both with tasty breakfast tacos. Kick boring scrambled eggs to side, bring on the tacos and a little hot sauce and your breakfast just got mucho caliente! Adding avocado helps bring some healthy fat and ensure these tacos help fuel you through the morning.
BEACH COBB WITH HERB VINAIGRETTE
Spend all day at the beach, then come back home to this amazing salad! Well, even if you AREN'T hitting the beach, making this cobb will take you to a warm, sunny day! Nothing beats fresh, homemade dressing with clean ingredients. For the salad, there's major protein with the chicken and nuts, along with a nice mix of colors with the greens, grapes (purple or green) and avocado. And bacon, yum. Need we say more?!
AVOCADO DEVILED EGGS
We simply cannot get enough of these insanely good deviled eggs! Instead of using mayonnaise or other traditional fillers, we've chosen heart healthy avocado to mix in with the yolk. This adds more healthy fat, brings on creamy texture, and boosts the flavor and color on these hand held cuties. If bringing to a party as an app, double the recipe, just trust us. These'll go QUICKLY!
