Buffalo Turkey (or Chickpea Tacos)

I love tacos! I mean who doesn’t?

Our fam could easily have this as a dinner one night per week but to avoid food ruts and boredom I am always on the look out to change up this basic recipe. Last week I posted a new Peanut Taco Recipe in a Lettuce Wrap and this just sparked more inspiration for more taco creations. This week I want to share my new Buffalo Turkey Tacos which again I am serving on a lettuce wrap for myself. As most of you know I am running a 30 day clean eating challenge and we aim to avoid gluten and dairy among other things, and lettuce wraps are a really simple and healthy alternative to wraps. This is one of my favourite recipe for a night where I am craving something a little less “healthy” and a little more fun or daring.

Peanut Chicken or Chickpea Tacos In a Lettuce Wrap

 This past week I was feeling really creative in the kitchen and I took one of the recipes from my new cookbook - The Peanut Slaw Bowl and I wanted to make a spin on it and turn it into dinner. The chicken and chickpea tacos were the outcome and I couldn’t be more pleased with how easy and delicious this recipe is. Honestly dinner is ready in under 20 minutes and it can be a hit with the whole family. I do mine in lettuce wraps which makes it gluten free and lower in calories which suits my nutritional needs (as I am currently running a 30 day clean eating challenge if you want to join the fun click here https://www.pamrocca.com/custom-meal-plans) and my family enjoys their tacos in whole wheat wraps with no cilantro which suits their needs.

This recipe shows that you can eat clean and your food can and should be so flavourful, I would never post something that was bland or boring. That’s just not me. I want to get everyone excited to eat more veggies, to think twice about what we are putting in our bodies and make it so simple that there really are no excuses to not eat healthier. Because honestly you guys, what we eat affects how we feel each and every day…and I want you to all feel fantastic!

I created two versions of this recipe both are yummy! Pick the one that suits your nutritional needs and goals and enjoy.

Lasagna Stuffed Portobellos

If you love a good lasagna but hate the heaviness you feel after eating it this recipe is for you. I am sharing a traditional/keto version and a vegan variation both nutritious, delicious and easy to make.

This is the perfect transition meal from comforting winter food to fresh summer food. This dinner is loaded with veggies and fresh flavours, yet baking it is so warming to the body on those damp rainy days.

You will notice a trend with all the recipes I share here on the blog – Ideally they take under 20-30 minutes to make, made with real food and they have to taste amazing! Honestly, if it’s not good….I won’t post it. I save you the time and energy so you can spend more time doing the things you love.
