Drink Me Silly on Taco Tuesday

by Nicci on 09/22/2009

I’m  happy to say…Monday is Complete! I didn’t think I could make it through a 3 hour board meeting w/ a  headache last night.

Had to pump up this Tuesday with some cardio.

Ladies of the Firm kick my booty into gear every morning!

I needed a smoothie for breakfast BUT decided to quench my thirst with my current #1 Love.

 Coconut Water!!

I had the Pom flavored Chobani too (not pictured)

I’m loving this water and at $1.30 a can, you can’t go wrong!!  I recently learned ”Goyo” has sweet and unsweetened coconut water. I ended up drinking two of these babies throughout the day.

Lunch was brown rice w/chickpeas, carrots and apples.

I’m try to mix it up with dinner but I could not stop thinking about Kashi’s Pilaf.  I decided I would make simple tacos with the pilaf tonight.

Introducing… The best tacos I’ve ever eaten.

”Nothing Fancy Pilaf Tacos

Yummy Balsamic Cucumber salad.

Ingredients:

  • Kashi ”Fiery Fiesta” Pilaf
  • Lean ground turkey
  • 2 T McCormick taco seasoning
  • fresh cilantro
  • dash of S&P

There was no need for tomatoes, cheese or any other thing else on the tacos.

Last but not least my 2nd Love: Organic Green Tea Pomegranate from Old Orchard.

I don’t see this bottle lasting too long b/c Chris liked it. I was shock because the only tea he drinks is ”super” sweet tea. ;-)

He also started telling me the health benefits of Pomegranates :)

Yeah for only 45 cals, but boo! on the 12g of sugar…oh well it’s still great!

Can you name some health benefits from Pomegranates?

Pomegranates Promote a Healthy Heart

Clinical research shows that pomegranates, when part of a healthy diet, might help prevent heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. This is because pomegranates have the potential to thin the blood, increase blood flow to the heart, reduce blood pressure, reduce plaque in the arteries, and reduce bad cholesterol while increasing good cholesterol.

Time to erase the DVR before tonight’s shows like 90210 .

Do you prefer the original or new cast of 90210?

Remember tomorrow is the last day for Dr. Kracker Giveaway, winners announced Thursday!

i’m all about old school 90210, even though i was way too young to be watching those 30-somethings pretend to be high schoolers, but i love new 90210 as a guilty pleasure. that silver sure is crazy!

coconut water. i’ve had the actual water from a fresh coconut before, and i thought it was terrible! is the goya canned stuff pretty flavorful?

oh wow that sure does look like the best taco ever!

Taylor September 23, 2009 at 12:41 pm

I very much prefer the old cast of 90210. I think the new cast has the press all over them for being too thin and who didn’t love the Brenda, Dillon (can’t remember the other name) love triangle.

whitney September 23, 2009 at 11:55 am

those tacos look AWESOME :) so do the cukes! looks like you had a great dinner!

i’m all for the new cast of 90210- it is my new fav show. can’t get enough hah

Jessica @ How Sweet September 23, 2009 at 10:58 am

I love old school 90210, but I gotta admit I love it this time around, too. I feel like that’s weird since I’m so much older than highschool now. :)

Rachel September 23, 2009 at 10:36 am

Mmmm I love Kashi Fiery Fiesta pilaf…I will definitely have to try this taco recipe!

Jamie September 23, 2009 at 10:05 am

That sounds awesome. Like I said… I didn’t SHRED this morning but I plan on keeping it up while I am BFL-in it! Back on tomorrow! I am gonna be HOT by Halloween… hmmmm what to dress up as?

Megan @ Megzz Wins At Life September 23, 2009 at 9:55 am

Tacos look delish!!

Courtney September 23, 2009 at 8:01 am

Ladies of the firm! Haha, love it! :D

brandi September 23, 2009 at 6:17 am

I love pomegranates! I can’t wait until they’re back in stores soon.

Melinda September 23, 2009 at 4:58 am

Great taco idea. I don’t think I would have ever thought of using pilaf for tacos. Nice work!

A@ Please Don't Eat Me! September 23, 2009 at 4:46 am

Hi Nicci! I just swung over from Rebeca’s site.. : )

i love the tacos.. i love all things Goya as well – how do we survive without them??

ive never watched the new cast of 90210- it seems like the show is just a copy of Gossip Girl or One Tree Hill.. those shows.. and it bums me out!!

Whitney September 23, 2009 at 1:55 am

I’ve wanted to try coconut water for a long time! I can’t find it near me.

The Actors Diet September 22, 2009 at 10:26 pm

i grew up on the old 90210. i have no tolerance for this new cast!

Sophia September 22, 2009 at 10:09 pm

I don’t like the old cast. They seem anorexic to me, and is quite upsetting.

Pomegranates are awesome! The juice runs all over my hands as I bite into it, but I still enjoy every mouthful!

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) September 22, 2009 at 9:22 pm

I LOVE pomegranate in my green tea!!!! I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for that one!

Nicci September 22, 2009 at 7:54 pm

Mari-i like to shred also. Jillian really kicks my butt.lol

Mari September 22, 2009 at 7:29 pm

Hey =) I just found your blog and really like it. I have never done The Firm workout; I think I tried to do it once but the girls were irking me lol. They reminded of my niece’s Barbie Cartoons lol…do you do any of Jillian’s workouts??? They are great.

Old school 90210 for sure and they have to be the Brenda years lol

Kaytee September 22, 2009 at 7:17 pm

i LOVE pomegranate sweet tea. I usually buy Sweet Leaf because it’s made in Texas but that kind seems pretty great too!

I never thought about putting pilaf in tacos, but I guess it’s similar to rice in burritos, huh? What a great way to pack in the flavor.

& PS. OLD SCHOOL 90210 ALL THE WAY!

Rebeca September 22, 2009 at 6:41 pm

*sigh* I think I’m moving in with you so you can make me tacos… those sound fabulous!

Mmm I need to find that tea… the boyfriend is obsessed with this other one that’s not organic and has like 150kcals in it and this would be better to have around (for both of us because sometimes I take sips lol).

Nicole September 22, 2009 at 6:36 pm

I love that name, ‘Ladies of the Firm’ – so funny! And your simple taco looked divine. I love how you used fresh cilantro – that’s one of my all time faves! And Goya makes such great stuff. I always check out the Spanish/Goya aisle for spices – they are so much less expensive! And I saw that coconut milk there, too. Thanks for the review – I am going to have to buy it now!

WholeBodyLove September 22, 2009 at 6:04 pm

I’m so out of the loop. I haven’t watched enough tv to know that there is a new cast!

Morgan September 22, 2009 at 5:56 pm

Old School 90210 all the way. Donna Martin graduates!
