Forget Taco Tuesday! Let’s do Taco Burger Tuesday!


A few weeks ago our family was in Breckenridge, CO. It’s one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I’ve ever been and one of our family’s favorite vacation spots. Seriously, if it didn’t snow six months out of the year, we’d live there. Our first night there we ate at a steakhouse. Steakhouses are great for healthy eating because it’s usually really easy to order any cut of meat you want and a ton of veggies.

I saw a “Spicy Santa Fe” burger on the menu that looked delicious. I asked if they could serve it without a bun and they were more than willing (side note: most restaurants will happily serve a burger without a bun).  The burger was so amazing I wanted to recreate in at home. While I love the name “Spice Santa Fe” burger, It basically seemed like a taco in burger form to me, so I decided to just call it a Taco Burger.

I seasoned the meat with my Healthy Taco Seasoning (click here for recipe). This gave the patties themselves great flavor. Then add the toppings to the cooked patties and they tasted like a taco, but even better.

Healthy Chicken Salad Wraps

I have to admit, as a busy mom, I don’t always have time for a healthy lunch. I try to sit down to a plate of veggies and protein but there are days that 2 p.m. hits and I realize I’m starving and settle for a fruit leather and a few spoonfuls of almond butter. Not exactly a fabulous lunch.

This chicken salad is one of my favorites. My 5-year-old daughter loves it as well. If you don’t want to eat it in a wrap, this also tastes fabulous over a bed of spinach or arugula, or just strait from the bowl (my daughter’s favorite way). But no matter how you eat it, having a bunch of this in your fridge will just make your week better.
