Easy Clean Taco Seasoning Recipe

One of my favorite parts about eating clean is updating some of my old favorite foods and recipes by substitutions and modifications. I can enjoy just about everything I always did, but in a new healthier way. Everything from pizza to tacos and more.

Everyone loves taco night right? But have you looked on the back of those taco packets and read the ingredients? Can you pronounce everything they put in there? Taco seasoning is so easy to make and tastes so much better than the packets, plus you know exactly what you are putting into your body.

Kroger Simple Truth & Easy For You Event

I had the amazing opportunity tonight to join other Cincinnati Bloggers at the new Kroger Oakley Marketplace to check out the store, taste some food, and sip some wine (ok I didn’t drink, I’m pregnant remember, but I’ve been getting good at remembering what it tastes like!) We even got a nice surprise to bring some products and food home for dinner, which was a double bonus stocking the pantry and not having to cook tonight!

First of all this Kroger is huge! It was the first time I was there and I could literally spend hours just exploring. I lost track of time in the clothes department stocking up on comfy sweats for my growing baby bump, that I didn’t even make it into the home department before I had to head on over and join the others. I will definitely be back soon to browse some more, I might even bring my hubby and he can drink beer at their craft beer bar while I shop!

We were able to try 4 different kinds of fish and shrimp along with 4 different Simple Truth side dishes and my oh my things were tasty. My absolute favorite thing I tried was the dessert, yeah yeah of course the pregnant lady would say that right. But really, it was a Healthy Rice Pudding made with brown rice, almond milk, coconut sugar, currants and dates, and it was so warm and savory. I’m super excited they sent us home with this recipe because it is definitely something I will be making soon and sharing on this blog.

We then headed to the seafood department to pick out whatever fish you wanted to take home and make for dinner. I selected the Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon and had them season it with fresh rosemary, lemon, garlic, and butter. I wasn’t aware that you could have your fish seasoned in store, but it is part of their Easy For You Seafood program. Usually when I shop, I just buy the fish and have them wrap it up, but this is definitely another option especially if you are short on time.

I came home, baked the salmon, heated up the sides, and me and the hubby enjoyed our delicious dinner. Doesn’t it look amazing?

Special thanks to the Kroger Oakley Marketplace for hosting this event and for sending us home with dinner and these awesome Simple Truth Organic products. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I love Simple Truth Organic products, they allow me and my family to eat healthy AND on a budget, both of which are super important to me. I am so excited to see what new products they come out with next.
