vegetarian meal plan + tacos – september 8, 2013


This week is going to work a little bit differently because I will be doing a week-long taco cleanse in support of the brave Austin food bloggers that are taco-cleansing for the entire month of September! That means tacos for breakfast, lunch and dinner for me every day for seven straight days. The fam has agreed to join me for a MILD challenge (one day) with intermittent support throughout the week as I try to make good on my HOT promise.  Maybe my dinner tacos will be so tempting that they’ll forego silverware and join along with my taco dinners instead. 😉

Monday (aka family taco cleanse day)
Breakfast – Refried Pinto Beans, Potatoes & Soyrizo Tacos
Her Lunch – Black Bean & Cheese Tacos, Fideos, Fruit
Dinner – Potato & Kale Tacos on Homemade Corn Tortillas

Her Lunch – Waffles, Fruit & Smoothie

The grown ups will be eating leftovers (and tacos) for lunch all week. My breakfasts will more than likely be refried black beans, soyrizo and salsa tacos… on the regular. I’ll just have to wing it on Saturday and Sunday.

    You may have something with this “taco cleanse” idea… I didn’t know about Austin food bloggers doing it for an entire month? Hehe… I could TOTALLY live on tacos… although my diet would hate me!
