I ate well today.¬† Really well. ūüôā In fact I have a new “keeper” of a recipe.

For breakfast I started off the day with a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch mixed with Kashi Cinnamon Autumn Wheat, topped with sliced banana and organic milk.

Then for lunch I heated up an Amy’s Frozen Vegetarian¬†Lasagna.¬† This is sooooo¬†good. Especially served over a bed of spinach and topped with parm.

For dessert I had dates.  Seriously, so good, I checked the ingredients twice for sugar.  Surprisingly the only ingredient is organic dates. Wow!

Snack today was an organic chocolate chip granola bar and a clementine.

Dinner was the star of the day.  I made tacos for me and Matt.  Matt got the traditional meat-filled tacos, but I made myself something a bit special and a bit more healthy!

Enter……..Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos!!!!!

So lovely. ūüôā

I nuked half an organic sweet potato for 5 minutes and then mashed it up with a fork.¬† To the potato I added a sprinkle of chili powder, a drizzle of organic honey, and 2¬†shakes of hot sauce.¬† I mixed this all up and used the sweet potato as the “meat” of my taco.

I then topped the potato with some mexican black beans (from a mix I got at Target by Archer Farms), chopped spinach, chopped tomato, chopped onion, organic shredded mozzarella, and Ortega.

Organic Spanish Rice and sour cream on the side.

I was worried as I bit into my taco that I would be missing the flavor of he spiced up ground beef, but truly this was so delicious I didn’t miss it at all.¬† The sweetness of the potato mixed so well with the beans and the toppings. I give this concoction an enthusiastic 2 thumbs up!

For dessert I had a bit of So Delicious Mint Marble topped with vegan carob chips.

Consumed while I sobbed my way through My Sister’s Keeper. Wow, was that a tear-jerker.¬† I read the book a while back, and truly that was better, but the movie did a really nice job telling the story (even with a different ending).
