Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Pita Bread Tacos

 

 

 

Turkey Black Bean Pita Tacos 003
Went out about 7 am this morning to get the morning paper and it was C-O-L-D, how COLD minus 6 degrees. Thankfully there was no wind blowing so there wasn’t a wind chill factor for a change. I had already had my breakfast, work out, and shower by the time my parents were up and having their breakfast. So while they were eating I thought I would go ahead and clean the pots and pans Mom had used to make their breakfast. When I cook I try to eat healthy by using the right oils, food, and watching the serving portion sizes. But as I started to clean up for Mom it was amazing how much cooking oil she uses. I poured out enough cooking oil to fix my meals for a week, she uses Vegetable Oil where I use Canola Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. But she cooks as she was taught by her Mom, my Grandmother. I’ve been cooking and eating healthier ever since 2001, when I lost my leg to cancer. Just different styles of cooking, I don’t think I could ever go back to not eating healthy. For dinner tonight It’s Taco Night! I prepared Turkey and Black Bean Pita Bread Tacos.

I used my usual and favorite Gound Turkey, Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast is 120 calories, 1.5g of Fat, and 0 carbs and comes out perfect every time! To prepare the Turkey I fried it in a medium size skillet in Canola Oil and seasoned it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, Cilantro Flakes, and 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning. As I added the Taco Seasoning Mix I also added 1 can of Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans, I drained and rinsed them before I added them. Black Beans with Ground Turkey is a perfect pairing for Tacos. Mixed well until everything was coated and then simmered another 5 minutes until heated through.

 

 

 
For my other Taco toppings I used 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, 1 small diced Tomato, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Dole Shredded Lettuce, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and all in a Joseph Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Pita Bread. I love these Pita Breads! 50 Calories, 1g Fat and only 4 Net Carbs! I use them instead of Bread when I can. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
