What we’ve been eating…

We have been eating our colors and more whole foods…at least during the week 😁

I wanted to share with you some of our yummy weekday meals starting with this lunch. We used the sweet kale salad kit and baked up some frozen air fryer chicken tenders.

These tenders were from Tyson and they were crispy and delicious. I have to add though that you need some kind of sauce to dip it in because they do run on the dryer side.

I mentioned in my last post the breakfast tacos I have been making with the Siete tortillas.

I roasted up some potatoes for the week to create a quick and delicious breakfast.

The addition of some yummy pickled veggies amped up the flavor!

Watermelon has been a go to snack recently. We get one good watermelon and we are on a roll with finding all the sweet, juicy ones.

For dinner one night we made a stir fry with yuba noodles. Yuba noodles are made from tofu and add a chewy texture and a bit of protein.

We did a combo of shrimp, broccoli, onion and mushroom. It was tasty and filling!

The protein pancakes from Kodiak Cakes and cherries have been another go to breakfast. I love cherries and am so happy it’s cherry season 🙂

These are our eats as of late! What have you been munching on??

Siete Almond Flour Tortillas

I love making subs to more whole foods when given the chance. I had heard about the Siete brand if tortillas from a YouTuber and was very curious.

I am usually skeptical about “healthier” carb alternatives, but I am glad I took the leap to try them out.

They are pricey at almost $8 for 8 tortillas. I found them in my Sprout’s freezer section, but they may be in the refrigerator section of your grocery store.

I put them in my freezer so they last and they thaw out really quickly so it has not been a big deal. I cook them up with a little cooking spray on a non stick pan. They bubble up and become crisp and chewy.

I have been making breakfast burritos with them. They are thin and light but they taste exactly like a flour tortilla to me.

They have tortillas made with other flours like chickpea if that sounds more interesting. I am curious about the chickpea version but I am going to use the almond ones up first.

I am loving these tortillas and the wholesome ingredients. They are great for my weekday meals and super versatile.

Have you guys tried these tortillas? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!

Taco Tuuuuesdayyy

When Cinco de Mayo falls on a Tuesday, you gotta Taco Tuesday! Or at least that’s what my husband said…

I came home from work on Tuesday and he totally surprised me with a full taco set up! We had chicken, pico, guac, salsa, onions, radish, “sour cream” (Greek yog), and of course umm Sriracha to mix it all up 😀

This was so incredibly delicious and we had some leftover priduce that we extended Taco Tuesday in Taco Wednesday. Instead of chicken, we used shrimp seasoned with TJ’s taco seasoning and had the exact same set up. It was so yummy!

Since I still had tortillas leftover, I made myself a breakfast taco with scrambled eggs, sauteed/steamed kale, and obvi Sriracha. I realize I take my food pictures pre-Sriracha so I intentionally made sure the Sriracha was on this time!

I never thought about making legit tacos at home before (I know, silly me!) but after this I am wondering what other delicious concoctions we could come up with…stay tuned!

Did you guys do Taco Tuesday last week? What kind of tacos do you make at home? I would love to hear all the ideas!

Sonoratown and Somisomi

Remember that post I shared with you guys about Worth It? That show on YouTube that goes to different restaurants to try a food at three different price points?

Well, they tried tacos and since then Sonoratown has been on our mind. They kept talking about how amazing the flour tortillas were and I just knew me+Sonoratown=match made in heaven.

When we arrived there was a line and initially it didn’t seem to be moving but we managed to get through the line and order all in about 30 minutes.

After that wait we basically ordered one of everything on the menu.

We got two tacos-a chicken and beef, a shredded beef chivichanga (mini burrito), a chicken burrito, and a tostada.

They gave us salsa to go with it all and we both loved the red. It was fresh and bright with a good bit of spice.

Out of the food I loved everything. The tostada was my favorite along with the tacos and chivichanga. The burrito was good and ended up being the hubby’s favorite.

I am oh so happy we got to try this spot out!

Afterwards we needed something sweet so we paid the meter and headed to Little Tokyo to find some dessert.

Somisomi met all our requirements so we stopped in and hubs got the milk softserve and I got matcha. Normally we get them in the taiyaki cones but this time we switched it up a bit.

We ordered the softserve in cups and got the taiyaki on the side filled with nutella.

We had a few bites of our softserve before the piping hot taiyaki came out. Oh.em.gee. My life has been changed. This is definitely the way to do it!

The hot, chewy taiyaki dipped into the cold, cresmy softserve is the best mixing of temps and textures 🤤

It was a pretty fantastic way to spend the day!

Have you had taiyaki? What did you think?

Thanks for reading! See you next time!
