Yes…some things you’ll never be able to make the same and when you do they just don’t taste right. I have great news though…you can have a taco night and things are pretty good!
I love Mexican food…I love the flavours and when we recently had a Mexican Fiesta at home I didn’t want to be stuck eating just a salad so I got to work and made my own stuff for nutritarian tacos. Since I was already making so many different fillings for the meat eaters I didn’t want to have too much more to make so I used Yves Cuisine Mexican flavour ground round.
It was all awesome!
Here are some ideas for you if you’d trying to figure out how to have your own taco night.
Shells – whole wheat tortillas, lettuce leaves, even whole wheat pitas will work or skip the shell and make a taco salad with all the other items below!
Veggies – Tomatoes, lettuce, corn and whatever other things you like in your tacos
Meat – Veggie meat – you can opt for a commercial one if you’re pressed for time or make your own…there are great recipes for lentil or nut based taco meats. If you make your own you can cut down on sodium even more.
Guacamole – I make mine with avocados, chopped red onion, chopped tomatoes, cumin, lime juice and a dash of chipotle hot sauce…no specific measurements though..just wing it until it tastes rights
Cheese!! – ok, I know there are commercial cheese substitutes however I have a hard time paying so much for something that just doesn’t taste too good to me. You HAVE to try this nacho cheese recipe. It is tasty, economical and nut-free! I love it an it shreds up very well. Take a look at the picture of the “cheese” shreds.
Refried beans – I love this recipe. So easy and no added fats or oils.
With all these items you can have a lots of fun eating a similar meal with others if it’s taco night for a group.

This is fast and easy…need I say more? I could tell you how great cruciferous veggies are and how you should find as many ways as possible to get it into your diet. If you’re going to eat them, they’re beneficial to you in raw form or lightly cooked. This recipe is perfect because it’s good without cooking the cabbage to death. This is nice al dente and it pairs well with other indian dishes without being overpowering.
1.5 tsp yellow or brown mustard seeds
5 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 a head of cabbage sliced thin
1.5 tsp ground turmeric
Spray a non-stick pan or wok with cooking spray. Add 3 tablespoons of water to the pan once it’s hot then add the mustard seeds. They may pop and that’s ok. Add the garlic and stir it around along with the turmeric. Add the cabbage and stir fry it until it’s all well incorporated and cooked to your liking.
