April 18

With Easter on its way, I thought we could do a recipe round up of healthy dishes that you can make so you don't stray off course - at least not too far.

It's no secret that Skinnytaste is one of my #1 websites for healthy recipes. I have never made a bad recipe from her site. And the majority of meals that I prepare on the regular come from Gina's site.

You can type "Easter" on her search engine and get a whole list of options. Link >>
https://www.skinnytaste.com/?s=easter&submit=%EF%80%82

Of the recipes listed on this index, I've only made the cake balls. And those are very tasty!

What are you preparing for Easter this year? My family and I are headed out on a camping trip down to the Shenandoah Valley today. So our meal on Sunday will be scaled back quite a bit. So let me live vicariously through your brunch/dinner plans!

My whole family is going to Cracker Barrel after church. But this is ok because they have healthy dishes to choose from.

Challenges are announced the day before they begin. ALL DETAILS ARE PROVIDED IN THE ANNOUNCEMENT POST. If it does not make sense now, please be patient. It will when you read the individual announcements.

The day AFTER a challenge ends, there will be a Challenge Check In post. If you complete the challenge, you'll need to comment on that Check In post to be eligible for the random drawing.

I will select a winner at random from the Challenge Check In post. I will email this person using the email address associated with the winner's DietBet account. ONLY this person will be required to submit verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize. If no word is received during that 24 hour window, the prize is forfeited. And a new winner will be selected.

Dates subject to change.

Prizes are distributed at the end of the DietBet.

I'm a day late on sharing some of my favorite healthy recipes for Taco Tuesday, but any day can be taco day, right???

Instant Pot Chicken Enchiladas
https://www.number-2-pencil.com/instant-pot-pressure-cooker-chicken-enchiladas-6/

These enchiladas are amazing! And honestly, they taste even better reheated on Day 2! If you don't have an IP, you could probably make it in a dutch oven on the stove, too. Just would need to adjust the cooking times.

Slow Cooker Beef Tacos

https://www.skinnytaste.com/madisons-favorite-slow-cooker-beef-tacos/

I've used this same meat also for empanadas in the air fryer.

Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps
https://www.skinnytaste.com/turkey-taco-lettuce-wraps-3-pts/

This is one of my favorites for a taco meal. I make it along with Skinnytaste's guacamole recipe. And top it off with Trader Joe's lite mozzarella. I've used this meat recipe for empanadas, too.

Low Calorie "Chips"
I take a calorie friendly pita and spritz with a little olive oil. Cut up into triangles and season as desired. Then air fry (or bake if you don't have an air fryer) for just a few minutes until crispy.

Here's the brand I use:
https://www.josephsbakery.com/shop/flax-oat-bran-and-whole-wheat/flax-oat-bran-whole-wheat-pita-bread.html

What are your favorite recipes to make a calorie friendly taco meal?

  • This is my taco salad bowl.
    I have wavy bowls to make my tortilla into that taco bowl shape we LOVE.
    I use Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grain tortillas because I can't eat wheat flour or corn.
    I bake low till crispy.
    I add chopped romaine, 3 oz taco seasoned lean ground beef or turkey or cubed chicken breast, 1/4 cup black beans, chopped red bell pepper, 1/2 chopped avocado, grape tomatoes halved, chopped cilantro, topped with salsa. Sometimes I add a sprinkle of pepper jack Daiya cheese because I avoid most dairy.
    I break apart the bowl and use it as scoops for the salad contents. I love this meal, and it's super healthy.

That slow cooker taco meat recipe sounds yummy.

**April 16 Challenge Check In**



If you successfully logged 250 steps more than your normal daily step goal or the past seven day average, then comment on this post.



From those who comment, I will randomly select a winner. Only this person will be required to submit verification of his/her steps in order to claim the prize. Verification is as simple as a screenshot from your device's app or website. You can use any type of electronic device to track your steps - Garmin, Polar, Fitbit, Apple Watch, Health Apps on iPhone and Samsung, etc.

You will also need to provide verification of your daily goal, or your seven day average - whichever you used to calculate your step total for the challenge.



I will notify this person via the email associated with his/her Dietbet account. This person will then have 24 hours to reply with verification of his/her steps. If no word is received by the deadline, a new winner will be chosen.



You have until 9:30 am EST on April 18 to comment. After that, a winner will be chosen.
