Recipe Collection: Taco Salad
Today's goal is to drink at least 32 oz of water. I learned from Katie Evans, a hypnotherapist and weight loss counselor, that to find out the amount of water you should be drinking a day, the minimal amount that is, you take your weight and divide it in half. That is the minimum number of ounces of water you should consume per day.
Taco Salad Recipe:
3.5 oz meat sauce
Salsa (no sugar - read the label)
Assemble the greens and vegetables. Top with meat sauce. Add a little salsa to taste.
Taco Meat Sauce:
100 grams lean ground beef (less than 7% fat)
1 cup chopped tomatoes
½ cup water
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 cloves garlic crushed and minced
Pinch of garlic powder
Pinch of onion powder
¼ teaspoon chili powder
Pinch of oregano
Cayenne pepper to taste (optional) (I used cumin)
Salt and pepper to taste
I was cooking for 6 adults yesterday, so I made a large batch, adjusting the spices to taste. I also used a can of organic tomato paste and low sodium beef broth in lieu of the tomatoes and water.
