Jicama Nachos- It’s What’s For Dinner

 

Wednesday Workout:

Taught spin. Obviously used my new favorite “Time is Love” song for a climb.

Taught Cycle and Turf class.

Then this little Free Motion gem caught my eye.

Coolest treadmill ever? I think so. It was calling my Mizuno Wave Sayonaras over.

I did 2.5 slow miles just to test out my legs and my hip a bit. It wasn’t too bad. Not pain free, but not uncomfortable. Check out the cool console and all the features on the treadmill though.

I really need to figure out a way to get one of these at home. Seriously. I remembered my Halo Headband today which was a huge plus.

Oh, wait, that reminds me. The winner of the Halo Headband giveaway chosen by random.org is:

Woo hoo!

 

And, well, don’t want anyone feeling like they didn’t win so thought I’d get a picture of Kitty up here this evening.

He’s been feeling a little left out.

Oh, and I almost forgot.

Before I talk nachos and other stuff, just wanted to share reader Susan’s picture. It’s been so long since we did a Flat Kitty post of any kind, but bless her heart she has Flat Kitty in Germany with her.

Funny, right?

I think I may have to bring the whole Flat Kitty Friday thing back. It was fun. We just need a theme to start out with.

Hmm….. any ideas?

Flat Kitty and squash? Flat Kitty and summer fun?

Flat Kitty and Mizuno shoes?

Someone help me. Would you send in some pictures if we got a good theme?

 

Anyhoo….

Today’s smoothie was the same as yesterday’s, but I put a whole banana in there and I took a picture of the finished product.

Did a little refueling between classes in the car. Some of that new bread for the boys (recipe coming tomorrow) and a chia shot for me.

Taking shots in the car. Don’t tell.

Lunch was magnificent.

Swiss chard wraps. These ones had turkey breast, Tapatio, a Serrano chili, Slap Ya Mama seasoning and some guacamole.

Love wrapping things with huge chard leaves. They wrap so darn well.

I followed that up with some STUFT Detox style roasted spaghetti squash topped with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice and the normal nut butters and oil while we took a little “rest”.

So jicama nachos.

Delicious? Yes.

You must try them? Yes.

I pretty much just took roasted jicama chips (roasted without any oil or anything at 425 convection for about 25 minutes) and make them into nachos.

A couple of different ways.

My first attempt was to use really thin slices I made in the food processor.

Those didn’t quite turn out that well.

Slicing them a little thicker and using a higher temperature on the oven is key.

Last night they turned out much better.

My favorite seasonings when making my own taco meat (we love turkey) or cooking up a chicken breast are Lawry’s Hot Taco Seasoning and Slap Ya Mama.

Dinner the other night with turkey meat and date night guacamole looked a little like this.

Last night I took it up a notch with chicken and some roasted kale salad on the side.

IMG_9483

Topped that off with a lot of salsa, chilies, hot sauce, you know.

For some reason, nachos are so much better with thinly shredded iceberg lettuce, don’t you think?

Someone asked if STUFT Daddy eats the same things I do. The answer is kind of. I usually make a variation of my creations for him and the boys. They like their beans and cheese and stuff, but they also love their roasted vegetables. When we had this dinner two night in a row I made him homemade corn chips.

IMG_9448

He got to fix those bad boys up, but I did not make him take a picture. They looked a lot like healthy chicken nachos though.

Smile

Okay, I’m off.

 

Have a good night!

 

Do you have a treadmill at home?

Any nacho lovers out there?

Thoughts on bringing Flat Kitty back?

    Shoot! I have lost my flat kitty! I need another one And yes, I would love to see his comeback, some of the submitted photos were fabulous.

    No treadmill at home, there are many times I have wish for one though.

    Even this vegan loves nachos…just vegan style.

    Flat Kitty has triumphantly returned from Europe! He visited Germany, Switzerland, and Italy!! He was very well-behaved and had a great time! I will email you his adventure-in a few separate emails, as I still can’t get everything into one attachment! (Maybe some day I will master that!). Yes! Bring back Flat Kitty Fridays!

    I love your persistence with your Stuft Detox!! I’m sure it must be difficult at times, but seeing all the healthy, yummy food you post is very inspiring!!
    I have a couple questions..
    1. have you found you spend more or less on groceries? I’m curious because I would guess it could go either way…if I gave up protein powders & processed bars (which are expensive), but traded these for large bulk of veggies & quality meat, eggs…just wondering what the difference would be.
    2. do you notice a huge difference in the way you feel? Or, has it affected your energy in your workouts? Any other benefits you’ve experienced? (skin clearer, sleeping better, hunger levels, sugar cravings, less aches & pains? all the things that most people notice eating this way?)

      Sarah- Too funny that you ask because I just trying to figure that out last night. I feel like I spend more, but the same thing as you, I haven’t been buying the expensive bars and powders lately. I’ll answer your second question in a post if you don’t mind since you’re not the first person who’s asked. :)

    That’s the exact kind of treadmills they have at our gym – I absolutely love them, especially the good quality fan for when I’m running! :)

    This looks ridiculously good.
    I will be making these.

    On that treadmill at home question…..I might.

    What does swiss chard even taste like? Is it similar to any other green lettuce or does it have more of a strong flavor?
