I made beef chili this morning. It smelled so good that I decided to throw together an impromptu taco salad for breakfast.
Yes, taco salad for breakfast. Stop looking at me like that. You don’t have to eat this for breakfast if non-standard breakfast foods aren’t your thing. We can still be friends.
I made chili with grass-fed ground beef, carrots, onions and that leftover jar of Garlic Roasted Garlic sauce in my fridge from Naan pizza night. Piled this morning on to a bed of mixed greens, some shredded colby jack cheese and avocado with a few tortilla chips on the side. It’s likely (OK, a certainty) that a few more tortilla chips were snagged from the bag before I put it away.
There is no need for any salad dressing with this set up, the chili IS the dressing! And by the time you get to the end, any tortilla chips you have left on your plate will be delightfully soggy. You don’t have to eat the soggy tortilla chips if soggy tortilla chips aren’t your thing. We can still be friends.
Lentil tacos are a great way to make a vegetarian version of this, vegetarian chili works great over greens too. I always underestimate how good this sort of meal will be. As I was finishing it up I found myself wondering if it would be so bad to have the same thing again for dinner tonight.
Today’s green was dinosaur kale. This makes three or four days in a row of green juice, I’m still feeling inspired from Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.
We’ve only got 10 days to go in March! Has your green consumption increased at all over these last three weeks? I hope you’re feeling good and lookin’ fine! And I also hope you know it’s A-OK if you haven’t hit the greens every single day for this month. We can still be friends.
