Taco Salad Bowls

Taco Salad Bowls

OH baby! These Taco Salad Bowls are drool-worthy and can be made in 20 minutes (if you don’t have to make them pretty and try to take nice photos of them LOL)

Makes 3-4 bowls (depending on how much chicken everyone wants):

Ingredients:
1 lb lean ground chicken
3 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tbsp cumin
1 head of iceberg lettuce
1 red pepper, sliced
1 orange pepper, sliced
1/2 red onion, chopped/diced
1 1/2 cup frozen corn niblets
1 large tomato, sliced
1 large avocado
Salsa to taste
Plain 0% Greek yogurt to taste (a healthy alternative to sour cream).
As desired: Mary’s Gone Crackers to crumble on top
As desired: shredded marble cheese

Directions:
1. In a large skillet with 2 tbsp olive oil, put it on medium-high heat and cook the ground chicken. You should be mixing it regularly, add in the chili powder, cumin, and garlic. Mix until brown with no pink left throughout. (About ~15-20 minutes)
2. In a small skillet, saute the peppers and onion skin 1 tbsp olive oil (~7-10 minutes). Heat the frozen corn niblets in the microwave following package instructions.
3. Prepare your bowls:
Add the chopped lettuce on the bottom of the bowl, top with avocado, tomato,sautéed vegetables, corn, and chicken.
4. Add Mary’s crackers crumbled on top (a healthier alternative to tortilla/nacho chips) and add shredded cheese as desired.
5. Sauce it up with salsa as your topping and plain 0% greek yogurt!

I used my moms home-made salsa to top. I will be posting our family recipe for that very soon if you are a dare-devil and into the hard work of canning. It is delicious!

I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Until next time friends. xx

Say Hello to your new Nutrition Specialist Intern with World Vision Canada! (ME!!)

World Vision 1st Day

I am excited to announce that today is my first day in the office at World Vision Canada. I have taken on the new role as a Nutrition Specialist Intern for the next 8 months. I will be working on The ENRICH Project. This project is focused on enhancing nutrition services to improve maternal and child health. World Vision is leading a group of Canadian development organizations in this new $41.5 million project to improve nutrition in five countries: Kenya, Tanzania, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Myanmar (Burma).

The ENRICH project will leverage the expertise of the Micronutrient Initiative, HarvestPlus, the Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH), the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health, and the Hospital for Sick Children. Together with World Vision, these organizations will offer a full package of nutrition programs to help reduce maternal and newborn mortality, stunting and wasting in children, and break families out of the cycle of poverty. I’m thrilled to begin my new position and create a positive impact on the nutrition sector internationally.

I will not be travelling to the field until November BUT when I do… make sure to keep following A Teaspoon of Bliss for updates on my travels, THE FOOD, and my experiences in Bangladesh! I am looking forward to sharing my experience with all of you.
