It is no secret that Taco Tuesday is my favorite day of the week. Maybe because I was born on Cinco de Mayo – who knows but I love it.  In my practice, I hear a lot about how people do not have time to cook. Therefore, they are finding all the excuses in the world to grab take out, avoid eating dinner or making something that’s easy to them but is 99.9% of the time heavy carbohydrate meals. In my world, there are no excuses because this meal took me 30 minutes from start to finish, including clean up. 30 minutes is the same amount of time you’ll spend reviewing a menu, picking up take out, driving to and from locations, boil hot water and cooking pasta, etc.  The other great part about this meal, is it provided 4 meals.This meal is great for any busy individual and families! See how easy this was to make below.
