*happy NATIONAL TACO DAY*
Even though the shell has been replaced with a cool and refreshing crisp lettuce leaf, the warm vibrant and rustic flavors of the curry spice balance this one-handed masterpiece perfectly. With Abstract Spice as the all natural seasoning base for flavor, the added rich fall spices of curry and paprika are heightened for a more distinguished tasting taco. Taking this flavor to an additional level is the arugula. Usually I have fresh cilantro as a garnish for my tacos that packs bright flavor, however, the 'peppery' bite of arugula deepens the warm spice tones to pair even more harmoniously with these tacos. Finishing with a squeeze of lime adding delicious zing to the layers of flavor and freshness, these tacos are a force to be reckoned with!
Like with many of my newer recipes, my Green Goodness Curry Taco Boats also include simple ingredients and preparation making it an ideal recipe to prepare during the week. You can even prepare the curry seasoned filling ahead of time and just heat and serve when you like. These are also super convenient for packing for lunch!
HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR TACOS? LET ME KNOW AND MAYBE I'LL FEATURE YOUR RECIPE IN A POST!
Hey hon! Because salmon is not always in season I try at all times to get it wild, obviously even when it IS in season. However, if it's out of season I try to purchase it at @costco where they have a sticker on the package of their fresh salmon when it's out of season that states it's antibiotic free/responsibly raised. Try to go to a fish market if possible though. You know our ❤30349❤ connect 'Fulton Bay Fish Market' on Roosevelt is a trusted neighborhood spot- but remember they're closed Sun-Tues😉. And if you want a larger selection, you can't beat @yourdekalbfarmersmarket - open err'day from 9am-9pm! (except for Christmas and Thanksgiving). As far as the types of fish that I ADORE, and of course good for you😜, are trout(my fav right now❤), good ol' whitting is awesome as well. Cod is also an excellent thicker meaty fish compared to these others I mentioned. Hope this helps babe!! Let me know!!
What are your reservations about fish? What is your favorite way to prepare it? Let me Know inthe comments below and maybe I'll try it out and feature you in my next fish post!
And can you believe it, they have the nerve to be better for you than your standard white flour based pancake too!
Around this time right at the turn of the season, grocery store shelves are packed with pumpkin spices throughout! I snagged my spice at one of my favorite farmer's markets that I have been patroning for as long as I can remember! Yep, none other than Your Dekalb Farmer's Market! My goodness, they have everything in there!
These Fall Pumpkin Spice Protein Pancakes are sure to become a season tradition in our home. Obviously butter and maple syrup are a must. But adding warm spiced apples on top would definitely set these babies off right!
There's no better way to say 'Welcome Fall'!

These bars are perfectly convenient to grab-go-and-toss in your lunch or workout bag. I enjoy a bar 30 minutes prior to my workout to get the fuel needed to power through my workout with a 'boosted' calorie burn weapon!
The sweet-tart juicy burst from the dried cherries combined with the creamy chocolate goodness of the chips is like a symphony of flavors backed with the satisfying crunch of the walnuts. While I would not recommend these bars as a dessert treat since their sweetness is mainly derived from the cherries and dark chocolate alone, this dense bar is a super delicious treat that motivates me to live my best workout!
*NOTE: To make this more of a sweeter treat, add 1/2 cup brown sugar to the mix.
