Good Eats

Collard Tacos!

I am typing this post from my iPhone, with serious hopes this will free up more time to blog.  I decided to snap pictures of dinner tonight, with my iPhone of course.  I absolutely positively have zero time for cameras, or anything fancy.  I predict way more action if everything can be done from my phone.  This could be good and bad, depending on how much wine I have consumed.

I can say this meal is a HUGE crowd pleaser and so flipping easy.  My son had an all star game tonight.  We found out about this “playoff” game yesterday.  Baseball is like my first pregnancy at 43 weeks.  While wonderful, it needs to be done.  This is a go to quick meal, but seems to impress adults and kids alike.  I only added the collard greens as the “taco shell” tonight, and my kids eat everything…BUT I have made this meal for lots of other friends’ kiddos with regular tortillas and they loved it too.  As in, use regular shells if no one is digging the collards.

These are the fixins’:

Grilled Mahi (squeeze lime and s&p before grilling) OR black beans for Vegan


Mango Salsa

Riced Cauliflower Sautéed with Avocado Oil, Lime, Garlic Salt (Trader Joes has fresh and organic frozen which is a HUGE time saver)

Sweet Potato Salad (Cube, add scallions, and mix half with chipotle mayo for adults and half regular mayo for kids-all in same dish)

Cilantro Lime Slaw (I used organic Trader Joes sliced cabbage, added cilantro, scallions, avocado oil, lime juice, garlic salt, and pepper with a little honey)

Corn is delish in this, but none was on hand tonight.

Lay all ingredients on the collard….

Roll up and ENJOY!

Clearly this picture was taken after he picked up the taco from the wrong end.  This happens to my kids 99% of the time, but they end up just eating it all with a fork.

This is my older one who obviously was not having his picture taken while eating.  The struggle is real.  They both have no shirts on because clearly these are messy and my oldest would look like no one loved him at the baseball game with fish tacos down his shirt.  My little one just has to mimic the big brother.

These tacos are paleo, or vegan swapped with black beans.  Grain free, dairy free, soy free, organic, and can be easily adapted to whatever style of eating one desires. Yum!

    1. For this batch, I used Just Mayo regular and chipotle found in refrigerated section of Whole Foods (vegan). Ideally I make my own which takes ten sections in the Vitamix, but I always have backup mayo for time constraints.
