Taco salad sans chip

Chickpeas, beets, sweet potato (if they’re allowed?)

we eat a variety of meat veggie and salads for dinner a lot. The trick is to keep it different so it doesn’t get too boring! 

Stir fry’s minus the noodles are good too. It’s a good way to eat chicken and veggies that is different and delicious!

@soon2bS:  I used a spirallizer tonight for the first time to make “pasta” with zuchinni and carrots… it was so good, seriously could not tell a difference between that and real pasta. I put marinara sauce and lean ground beef on top- not sure if the sauce would be too high in sugar for DASH or not though

@soon2bS:  Try Shirataki noodles as a very low-carb sub for pasta. They’re made from yams and they come in various shapes familiar to pasta lovers (angel hair, etc.). They used to be hard to find but nowadays I see them at tons of grocery stores, not just the specialty stores and Whole Foods…

Cook some cauliflower and broccoli. Toast a handful of flax seeds on a little bit of olive oil, then toss the mix of cauliflower and broccoli in the pan and toast some more. Serve with a sprinkling of low fat cheese, done 🙂

@soon2bS:  stir frys without the noodles or rice. I alternate between honey soy based, chilli based and satay based to keep things more interesting.

@soon2bS:  tomato soup is good. Two peas & their pod has a good recipe.

Does he like salmon? We do a simple broiled salmon and serve it with sauteed spinach and mushrooms. Or lentils. 

Roasted veggies are always easy. We like cauliflower and Brussels sprouts tossed in olive oil with salt and pepper, then roasted. 

Cauliflower also makes a great puree substitute for mashed potatoes. 

You can make tacos, but instead of a taco shell or tortilla, serve it in a lettuce leaf. Serve with avocado and tomato tossed in lime juice. Nix the cheese and sour cream (or use greek yogurt mixed with some hot sauce!) and you’re good to go!
