Veggie Tacos

in All Posts

I’ve been trying to be more creative in the kitchen.  I think daylight savings time is having a positive impact on my cooking!  When it’s cold and dark out, all I can muster is cereal for dinner – or a microwavable meal.  Now that it’s lighter, later, I’m getting a second wind when it comes to mealtime.



These corn tacos are packed with carrots, onions, tomatoes, spinach, and pinto beans. To flavor everything, I added a few tablespoons of taco seasoning.  Keepin’ it simple!


I made this exact meal for dinner last night and replicated it today for lunch.  It’s that good!


To make:  add 1/4 cup water and a little oil to a pan.  Add in sliced carrots and onions and cook on medium high until carrots are soft.  Add spices and a bit more water, then add in the shredded spinach, chopped tomatoes, and beans.  Cook until the spinach wilts, and then scoop directly into tacos.  Yum.


Tonight, I went to a BIG consignment sale. <3  You know how I feel about consignment sales! I was on the hunt for spring and summer clothes for Henry.  I scored some pretty awesome deals and managed to stay away from buying a ton of plastic crap (said crap is slowly taking over my life).


Can’t wait for even warmer temps – we’ll be putting those baby shorts to good use, soon!

    I’m just going to be honest and admit that I eat tacos at LEAST three times a week. No shame, they’re my ultimate comfort food.

    I made some veggies tacos yesterday with broccoli, potatoes, and enchilada sauce. They were so good, but I like how your version is a little lighter. Either way, tacos are the best since you can just about through anything in a taco shell and call it dinner!

    Today I had a 66 degree sunny day in Oregon which is unheard of! Made me excited for summer.

    I love Mexican food, my fave way to enjoy it is to pile everything into a big bowl! Avocados or guac required for me though… not so much for you!!!! Can’t wait for warmer temps… we dropped back into cold temps today, the high is only low 40s, but tomorrow is supposed to be in the 50s again. Thank goodness. Also… tomorrow is FRIDAY 😀

    I feel the same was about daylight savings! I was so excited to step outside at 7p last night and realize that it wasn’t dark yet. So much more motivation for real meals and evening workouts!

    I definitely do more experimenting with food when it is warmer and lighter outside. Winter makes me want to just microwave an Amy’s burrito or open a can of chili.
