Weight-Loss Recipe: Diva Tacos Go Military!

It is with great pleasure to announce a cookbook by Lisa Edwards of! "This is a color cookbook of recipes from families and friends of soldiers all over the Unites States. Pictures of some of our brave men and women are included.  A portion of all proceeds will be donated to Soldier's Angels!   Check out Military Momz Blog and WAHM Addicts Social Network!

I am so honored that they have put our "Diva Turkey Tacos" in their cookbook! The "Diva Turkey Tacos" recipe can be found in MY DIVA DIET:  A Woman's Last Diet Book and is one of my favorites but I will post it here for you today! 

Diva Turkey Tacos
  • 1/2 lb. lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 tsp. red crushed chili pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. peppercorn melange 
  • 1/4 tsp. roasted garlic–sea salt blend
  • 3 sprouted corn tortillas, warmed 
  • non-stick cooking spray 
Preparation:  Spray a skillet with non-stick spray and start cooking ground turkey on medium heat.  When halfway cooked, add chili pepper, peppercorns, and roasted garlic–sea salt blend. Constantly stirring, continue another 5 minutes or until done.  Spoon 1/3 of turkey meat into one warm sprouted corn tortilla.

Makes 3 Servings (3 tacos) 
Nutritional Value:  1 taco = 
  • 160 calories
  • 16.5 g protein
  • 11.5 g carbs 
  • 5.5 g fat
  • 1.5 g fiber
  • 221.9 mg sodium
Notes:  Topping the tacos with cilantro, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes adds few calories and lots of good nutrition.  A handful of kidney, pinto, or black beans adds fiber.  Topping with 1/4 avocado or light cheese adds about 7 grams of fat.  Sour cream adds another 3- 5 grams of fat. Try to choose one or the other–not all three (avocado will be the healthier choice)!
