So it just occurred to me today to slice up a banana and put it on my whole wheat toast with peanut butter.
What have I been doing with my life before this? WHAT.
I don’t know how I’ve never eaten a banana with peanut butter before. All I know is, my life was incomplete! Holy cow. That was delicious. I felt like I was indulging in some super-rich dessert, but not. Like, wow. Okay. I’ll shut up now about the stupid banana but daaaang. So many good food ~feelings~.
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
- 3 medium portobello mushrooms
- 1 red and/or yellow sweet pepper, quartered
- 8 6- to 7-inch flour tortillas* (soft taco or fajita size)
- 2 medium avocados, halved, seeded, and peeled
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise (or vegenaise)
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- Salsa Verde
- Fresh Cilantro sprigs
- Lime wedges
*Feel free to use corn tortillas, whole wheat tortillas, pitas, lettuce, or whatever else strikes your fancy/dietary needs.
1. In a small bowl combine olive oil, salt, and pepper.
2. Brush the portobello mushrooms and sweet pepper with the olive oil mixture. Stack tortillas and wrap in foil.
3. For a charcoal grill, place the portobellos, pepper quarters, and foil packet on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill 8 to 10 minutes or until tender, turning once halfway through grilling time. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat the medium. Place portobellos, pepper quarters, and foil packet on a grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
4. Slice portobello and sweet pepper into strips. In a medium bowl, mash one of the avocados; stir in mayonnaise and chili powder. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Slice remaining avocado. Serve sweet pepper, portabello and sliced avocado on tortillas. Top with mayonnaise mixture. Makes 4 servings.

Starting my workout super late today, but that is totally okay, because a lot of good things happened today.
First, not only is my mom going to exercise with me (yay for healthy moms!), but my whole family is on board for totally revamping the way we all eat. In other words, I’m not going to transition into a healthier lifestyle alone. My mom has been asking me to look up healthy recipes for her, as well as help her put together a healthy grocery list. How awesome is that?
This is really exciting :) As soon as we get into the swing of things, I will post some of the recipes we use, and photos too!
I’d also love to get some more recipe ideas! Do you have a favorite healthy food blog or site? Hit up my ask box with suggestions!
Now I’m off to make my fat sob uncontrollably ;)
