Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos

 

 

 

This morning it was about 54 degrees, but I guess that was our high for the day as it’s been dropping ever since. rain on and off and windy, blowing in our winter storm I guess. We’re supposed to get 2″-4″, we’ll see though. Got my tests results back and my sugar looked real good they said as did everything else except for my thyroid, which it was a little off. I just have to adjust my medicine. As most former Cancer patients, you usually have a Thyroid trouble depending on your type of Cancer and treatment. For dinner tonight; it’s Turkey Tacos Night!

 

 

Turkey Tacos w Jim. Dean Crumbles 004

For the Turkey I used Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Crumbles. Kroger had the bags on sale so I thought I would give it a try! It comes pre-cooked so all you have to do is heat it up for about 8 minutes. As it was heating I added Sea Salt, Cilantro Flakes, and a 1/2 packet of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning. I really liked this! Great taste and real easy to heat up and use. I’ll buy another bag and keep it in the freezer.

 

 

 

 

I used Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. Their a good size Taco Shell with 110 calories and 12 Net carbs per serving (2 Shells). Then for my other Taco ingredients I used 2 tablespoons of Del Monte Summer Crisp Sweet Corn Kernels, sliced Black Olives, Shredded Lettuce, and Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican 4 Cheese. I topped them with Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream and Old El Paso Original Taco Sauce. When building my Tacos I always use the Shredded Lettuce as the first layer. The Lettuce helps soak up any moisture so the bottom of your Taco doesn’t get soggy. I love Tacos, easy to make and always delicious! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Black Bean and Turkey Flatbread Wraps

 

 

Pita Bread Tacos 006

It’s been one rough 24 hour period for me as the Phantom Pains kicked in last night around 8:00 and have continued through out today. I had a bout with these earlier in the week, so it’s unusual for them to start again so close together. Just hoping they ease up before I go to bed, if not it makes for one long and uneasy night! On to dinner, I had Tacos the other night with a lot of the ingredients leftover. So tonight I gathered up all the leftovers and prepared Black Bean and Turkey Flatbread Wraps.

 

 

I used the remainder Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, I had this leftover from the other night. I fried it 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 a 1/2 can of the Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans that were leftover, I drained and rinsed them before I added them. As usual Black Beans with Ground Turkey make the perfect pairing. Mixed well until everything was coated and then simmered another 5 minutes until heated through.

 

 

For my other toppings I used 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, Dole Shredded Lettuce, Old El Paso Taco Sauce, and a teaspoon of Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream to top everything off. Served everything on a Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pita Bread. This my favorite Pita Bread, this stuff is great! It stays fresh, you can freeze it, and it’s only 50 calories and 4 net carbs for one kind and only 60 calories and 4 net carbs for a bit bigger size. After adding all my toppings I just folded them half, like a soft taco. Really enjoyed these! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: Turkey and Black Bean Tacos w/ Refried BeansTurkey and Blackl Bean Tacos 005

 

 

 

I’m back up to par today! My voice is back and full of energy. Well we’ve ben lucky avoiding the heat and humidity for the most part this Summer but our luck has run out. High 80’s to low 90’s and very humid most of this week, thank goodness for air – conditioning. For dinner I prepared Turkey and Black Bean Tacos w/ Refried Beans.

 

 

I love Tacos! So versatile, you can put about anything you want in them and so many varieties of Taco Shells. For my Tacos I used Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, 120 calories and 0 carbs. My favorite Ground Turkey there is. I fried it 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. I’ve found Black Beans are a perfect pairing with Ground Turkey.

 

 

For my other toppings I used 1 can Green Giant Steam Crisp Super Sweet Yellow and White Whole Kernel Corn, 1 small can of Mario Sliced Black Olives, 1 small diced Tomato, Sargento 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Reduced Fat Cheese, a bag of Dole Shredded Lettuce, and all in a Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. Add it all up and you have yourself some down right delicious Tacos! I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunks.

Today’s Menu: Black Bean and Turkey TacosBlack Bean and Turkey Tacos 001

 

 
Another beautiful cool morning here. Got out early and hit the stores. Started at Walmart for some of the Meat, Bakery, and basic staples for the pantry. Then off to Kroger for the rest of the Meats, Produce, Cheese, and Deli. I’m still amazed at the big difference in prices between Walmart and Kroger. Anymore I only buy what I can’t find at Walmart. You can save hundreds by purchasing center aisle products from Walmart, Pasta, Can Goods, Paper Products, and such. Stay out of Kroger center aisles! For dinner one of my favorites, Black Bean and Turkey Tacos.

 

 

I used Jennie – O Ground Turkey, 99% Fat Free (120/0). I pan fried it in Canola Oil and I seasoned it a bit with Cilantro, Sea Salt, and Smoked Ground Cumin and I used 1 packet of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning. As the Turkey was finishing up I added a can of Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans, before adding them I rinsed them off with cold water in a strainer. I mixed the Turkey and Black Beans in the pan until well mixed and continued cooking until the Turkey was done and the Beans were heated.

 

 

I used Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. Their a good size Taco Shell with 110 calories and 12 Net carbs per serving (2 Shells). Fewer calories and carbs than the Old El Paso Taco Shells. For the Taco fillers I had Green Giant Summer Crisp White and Yellow Kernel Corn, sliced Black Olives, shredded Lettuce, Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican 4 Cheese, and Old El Paso Medium Taco Sauce. To assemble my Taco I first layered the bottom with shredded Lettuce, the Lettuce helps soak up any moisture so the bottom of your Taco doesn’t get soggy. After the Lettuce I layered in my ground Turkey/Black Beans, then Black Olives, Corn, Taco Sauce topped with the Shredded Cheese! Love these Tacos! I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for Mom and Dad. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt Cup.

Today’s Menu: It’s Taco Friday, Black Bean and Ground Turkey Tacos!

Black Bean and Turkey Tacos 007

 

 

Last day of the heat and humidity for at least a few days they say, at last! We even had a couple of real heavy showers throughout the day, which we needed. Me I went to Walmart early this morning but not my usual Walmart I normally go to. I switched Walmarts, the one I normally go to was going down hill fast. The produce department wasn’t stocked a lot of times with near expired fruits and vegetables and the other aisles were hardly ever fully stocked. Worse of all was their electric carts, which I need being an amputee. Of late the carts are broke or won’t charge, always having to switch carts at least twice on every visit. So I go to a different one now and it’s great. Plenty of working carts and everything well stocked! For dinner it’s Tacos! I prepared Black Bean and Ground Turkey Tacos.

 

 

Black Bean and Turkey Tacos 001

I used Honeysuckle White Ground Turkey, 99% Fat Free (130/0). I pan fried it in Canola Oil and I seasoned it a bit with Cilantro, Sea Salt, and Smoked Ground Cumin and I used 1 packet of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning. As the Turkey was finishing up I added a can of Bush’s Low Sodium Black Beans, before adding them I rinsed them off with cold water in a strainer. I mixed the Turkey and Black Beans in the pan until well mixed and continued cooking until the Turkey was done and the Beans were heated.

 

 

 

 

 

I usually use Old El Paso Stand Up Taco Shells but while at Walmart I picked up a different one, Ortega Whole Grain Corn Taco Shells. Their a good size Taco Shell with 110 calories and 12 Net carbs per serving (2 Shells). Fewer calories and carbs than the Old El Paso Taco Shells.

 

 

 

For the Taco fillers I had Green Giant Summer Crisp White and Yellow Kernel Corn, sliced Black Olives, shredded Lettuce, Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican 4 Cheese, and Old El Paso Medium Taco Sauce. To assemble my Taco I first layered the bottom with shredded Lettuce, the Lettuce helps soak up any moisture so the bottom of your Taco doesn’t get soggy. After the Lettuce I layered in my ground Turkey/Black Beans, then Black Olives, Corn, Taco Sauce topped with the Shredded Cheese! Love these Tacos! Making Tacos also gave me the chance to use my new Taco Holders! I had never seen these before I purchased them at Walmart earlier today. Their made of hard plastic and you just sit your Taco Shell in it and it keeps it upright, a lot easier to load up the Taco and keeps it together when your eating it and you want to sit it down. For dessert/snack later some Ritz Whole Grain Crackers topped with some Philly Reduced Fat Cream Cheese.

Fish (Cod) Tacos w/ Refried Beans

Today’s Menu: Fish (Cod) Tacos w/ Refried BeansFish Tacos 005

 

 
Beautiful day out, a good breeze kept the humidity down all day. I had purchased a large fillet of Cod yesterday when I was Kroger. I sliced it up into 3 pieces, saving 2 pieces that I froze to make Fish Sandwiches out of later and 1 piece for my dinner tonight. I prepared Fish Tacos along with a side of Refried Beans.

 
I first washed the Cod off in water and patted dry with a paper towel. I then grabbed a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag and added Zatarain’s Lemon Pepper Breading Mix and the Cod, shaking it till it was well covered. I pan fried it in Canola Oil, fried it about 3 minutes per side. The Zatarain’s gives it perfect seasoning. After it was done I broke it into smaller pieces for the Taco.

 
For toppings along with the Cod I used Green Giant Sweet Yellow and White Corn Kernels, Shredded Lettuce, Ortega Diced Jalapenos, Sliced Black Olives, fresh grated Dutch Gouda Cheese, and Taco Bell Bold and Creamy Chipotle Sauce. If you’ve never tried the Taco Bell Bold and Creamy Chipotle Sauce and you like Taco Sauce with a nice little kick to it you’ll love this Sauce! Not over bearing heat but a nice little warm up. The Cod with all the toppings and Sauce make a good Taco. Cod is so versatile, you can cook it about any way and use it for countless dishes. I also warmed a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans, perfect side for Tacos and it’s Fat Free! For dessert later some Peanut Butter and Crackers. I used Jif Reduced Fat Peanut Butter and Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.

Taco Night! Turkey Tacos!

Today’s Menu: Taco Night! Turkey Tacos!

 
Has Spring actually arrived and staying? 80 degrees and sunny out today, a perfect day! We”ll wait and see if drops back down to chilly in a day or so. On to tonight’s dinner; It was Turkey Taco Night along with a side of Fat Free Refried Beans.

 

Tonight’s meal was almost all Old El Paso. I used Old El Paso Stand Up Taco Shells, Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans, Old El Paso, Turkey Tacos 005Sliced Green Chilies, and Old El Paso Original Taco Seasoning. OLE! The Ground Turkey I used was Honeysuckle White Extra Lean Ground Turkey (99/1). I browned the Turkey in Canola Oil, seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Ground Roasted Cumin, Dried Cilantro, and the Old El Paso Taco Seasoning. I almost always substitute Ground Turkey or Ground Buffalo for Ground Beef, all around healthier for you (See the end of the post).

 

My toppings for the Tacos include Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Chilies, Shredded Lettuce, Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, and Old El Paso Taco Sauce (Medium). As I said Earlier I used Old El Paso Stand Up Taco Shells and I had a small side of Refried Beans topped with Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. Can’t wait to make some Ground Buffalo Tacos here in the next week or so! For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice cream topped with some sliced Mangos.

 
Ground Turkey vs Ground Beef
A 100-g serving of ground turkey contains 148 calories, while the same-sized serving of ground beef contains 192 calories.

 

Ground turkey contains much less fat than ground beef, which is generally considered to be a benefit. Each 100-g serving of ground turkey contains 7.7 g of fat, while 100 g of ground beef contains 12.7 g.

 

Both ground beef and ground turkey can be appropriate for carbohydrate-restricted diets, as both are carbohydrate-free.

 

Ground beef and ground turkey are both good sources of protein. Ground turkey contains slightly more protein, 19.7 g, than ground beef, which contains 19.4 g. This difference is unlikely to affect your overall health.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Shrimp Tacos Sliced Papaya and Mango

 

Spent the morning with Dad at the rehab center. It was another sunny but cool day but they say in the 70’s for the weekend! For dinnerShrimp Tacos 007 a tasty and light meal; Grilled Shrimp Tacos. Instead of using the grill I used a cast iron grill pan. I also cut back on the recipe because I only made 3 Tacos, the recipe I listed below is for 6 Tacos.

 

To prepare the Shrimp you’ll need the following ingredients to make the Marinade; 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1/4 cup Lime Juice, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Cilantro, 2 tablespoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection Jalapeño Peppers, Diced, 1 tablespoon Honey, 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Garlic Powder, and 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt. Mix oil, lime juice, cilantro, jalapeño peppers, honey, garlic powder and salt in small bowl with wire whisk. Reserve 1/4 of the marinade. Pour remaining marinade into large resealable bag. Add shrimp; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 15 minutes.

 

Remove shrimp from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Grill shrimp over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes per side or until shrimp turn pink. To serve, place 3 shrimp on each tortilla. Top with Lettuce, Black Olives, Diced Mango and Pineapple, and serve immediately. The Shrimp came out incredible! The Marinade just gives it all kinds of flavor. You can use your own favorite Taco toppings, which is what I used. Very good recipe! I also had a small bowl of Sliced Mango and Sliced Papaya on the side. For dessert later a Jello Sugarless Dark Chocolate Pudding.
