My wacky appetite made it hard to think of what I wanted for dinner. There was a perfectly ripe avocado sitting in my fruit basket, so I started from there. Looking through my pantry, I found a packet of Trader Joe’s taco seasoning that I bought last week. Taco Night!
I started by sauteeing some tri-colored bell peppers and onions in a pan with some non-stick cooking spray, while George Foreman prepared my chicken
Once the chicken was done, I added it to the mix, along with some taco seasoning and a handful of broccoli slaw for a little extra crunch
I topped a whole wheat tortilla with 1/4th of an avocado and the last of my peach salsaAll together now!My eyes were bigger than my tortilla, and I had a bunch of filling left that I just ate sans tortilla.
Why Would Jessica Eat This?: Avocados are a fabulous source of unsaturated, or “good” fat. Don’t fear the fat! Fat plays a vital role in the diet, including aiding with absorption of fat-soluble vitamins (like Vitamin A) and helps with satiety. If you eat fat at every meal, you will feel full sooner and stay full longer. Remember, fat is your friend!
