Taco Salad

This is one of my kid’s favourite meals. They get a ton of greens, a great source of protein and some healthy fats.  I usually make about triple this recipe and freeze it. This is definitely a quick and easy dinner meal and they also like taking it for lunch.


Taco seasoning

2 tbsp chili powder

1 tbsp oregano, dried

½ tsp paprika

1 ½ tsp ground cumin

½ tsp salt and pepper

pinch cayenne

(mix the above ingredients together and will keep in air tight container for 3 months. Can double/triple the recipe so that you have some ready for next time)

Good Ol’ Fashioned Healing Bone Broth

Remember Grandma’s chicken soup? It was said to heal you from colds and whatever ailed you. It was made by following the recipe below which produces a gelatin rich bone broth. We also used to eat every part of the animal which created an amino acid (the building blocks of protein) balance in our bodies. However, today we typically turn our noses up at eating organs and other tissues. My mummy served us liver once a month (at least that’s what it felt like, but I can say that I have not carried on this habit after leaving home).

I have however, carried on the tradition of making my own broth – it’s just a habit you add to the end of your feast.

Save your carcasses for nourishing bone broth that is so super simple to make. If you don’t have time to make it in the moment- then freeze all the bones for later. Continue reading »
