This is my husbands favorite day of the week. Not because he has a torteous trainer ride and run but because it is followed up by some good tasting (and healthy) tacos, hence the name TACO TUESDAY. I like to switch things up each week as far as what filling goes in the tacos but for now, here is my base.
1. Spelt, white, or yellow corn tortillas
2. Veggie pepper jack cheese (Whole Foods carry brands that melt well)
3. fresh salsa
4. fresh avocado
Now depending on how James' training is going I will add in different meats. If I see he is tired and needs more Iron then I add some lean sirloin strips or ground meat. If he wants something lighter to keep at race weight I opt for egg whites or grilled chicken. If you really want some good flavor, grill the chicken in balsamic vinegar and light Italian dressing. Tonight I will make breakfast tacos using half brown eggs and egg whites (good source of omega 3's), brown rice (high in manganese which allows energy production from carbohydrate and protein), and some black beans (extra potassium and protein). YUM! I'll try to get some pics of James' scarfing his face, ha!
