It's only day number 3 for me today and my hubby asked if I would mind if he made Tacos for lunch. Uhm, YES! As a matter of fact, I would mind! I was starving, it was almost time for me to eat, and I love Mexican Food.
The past 2 days I've been ok and haven't really had too much of a problem being around food. Today was different though. We'll just call it the day 3 craving!
I could have eaten everything in the house, but I didn't. I was good! Tacos sounded delicious though and decided to make my very own special Medifast Lean and Green 5 & 1 recipe version!
Today was my broccoli day so I used broccoli where I would have normally used beans and rice. I used an ounce less of hamburger so I could add an ounce of shredded cheddar cheese to the top. It felt like I was getting a little something extra which was nice!
I also threw a pinch of Red Pepper Flakes on the very top when it was done. It really helped spice it up and give it a little extra flavor! I'm talking a pinch... you can't even really measure it out because it was so small but was just enough!
Lean and Green meals seem like they wouldn't be that good, but try this Medfast Lean and Green Recipe: Broccoli Taco Bowl, and you're sure to change your mind about how healthy yet delicious they really are!
