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

 

Turkey Black Bean Pita Tacos 003
Started my morning off with Fried Turkey Spam, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, 2 Slices Klosterman Wheat Bread, and a cup of hot brewed Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Did some laundry for Mom. Finally got her out of the house to enjoy herself. She met her cousin, who is like a sister to her, for lunch. She needed to get out, it’s just so stressful dealing with my Dad as his health isn’t getting any better and doesn’t do anything to try to get better. Moving on, it’s a beautiful day outside, around 80 or so and low humidity (No Rain either). For dinner tonight I prepared Turkey and Black Bean Pita Bread Tacos.

 
I used my favorite Ground Turkey, Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. The Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground black-bean-and-turkey-tacos-001Turkey Breast comes in at 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 Extra Virgin 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, 3/4 cup of Water, and 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, sliced Green Olives, some Whole Kernel Corn (Leftover from Dinner the other night), Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Shredded Lettuce, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream 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. The Pita Bread makes a perfect Taco and healthier Taco! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
