I know you made my Mocha Spice Shredded Beef over the weekend, and now you’re “stuck” with yummy leftovers wondering, “How can I make this meal even MORE delicious”. No worries friend, I got you.

These tortillas, found at A Girl Worth Saving, are one of my new favorite things. Combined with some tasty shredded beef, they make some incredible taquitos. If you’re a subscriber to the Primal Blueprint school of thought or you generally enjoy crushing some (nutrient-dense) dairy now and then, feel free to add in some organic monterey jack or queso fresca. These are also delicious with some freshmade guacamole and pico de gallo.


Grain-Free Shredded Beef Taquitos

1 tortilla recipe from A Girl Worth Saving (my own adaptations are below)

3 eggs
1 egg white
1/2 c. tapioca starch
1/4 c. ground sesame or sunflower seeds
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
pinch of cayenne and lime zest

1/2 lb. Mocha Spice Shredded Beef

2 Tbsp. coconut oil or ghee

  1.  Mix all tortilla ingredients and cook one at a time in a large non-stick skillet.
  2. Shred the beef and spread a small amount in a line across the tortilla. (add cheese now if using)
  3. Roll up tortilla and set aside. Continue with the rest of the tortillas.
  4. Heat a skillet with coconut oil until hot.
  5. Place taquitos, seam side down in the hot oil. Turn with tongs when browned.
  6. Serve with guacamole, salsa, and hot sauce!

PUMPKIN FIG OATS //Caught some morning light on my morning bowl of goodness. I made this last week and it was so good (and loved by my child) that I made another batch! I don't know if it's the figs or golden raisins, the coconut milk or the collagen, or maybe it's the banana and the pumpkin that make this bowl of oats absolutely satisfying for a day of leading, teaching, cooking, sweating, loving, and seeking. 
#sometimesibreakfast #sometimesidont #glutenfreeoats #notpaleo #dairyfreeoats INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!)
