Taco Tuesday: Roasted Lentils Edition

Happy Tuesday, loves!

If you've followed me for some time now (@thatwellthylife), you know that #tacotuesday is a weekly staple in our household. And, especially on nights like tonight when I'm not getting home until after 9PM, I really appreciate how easy tacos are to throw together for a quick and healthy dinner (as if there isn't already enough to love about taco tuesday!).

Tonight, I just whipped together some homemade guacamole (avocado, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, s+p to taste) onto a Food for Life Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Whole Grain Tortilla, with organic romaine, shredded carrots and pico de gallo from Trader Joe's.

For my protein source, I'm really excited to give these Roasted Lentils from SimpleSuppleFoods a try! I stumbled upon them in Whole Foods today while searching for a quick source of protein that I could throw into these tacos.  1/4 cup of these guys contains 9g of protein and 5g of fiber (20% of our daily recommended intake). And, I love that they are made locally here in Michigan! I took a little taste test before assembling my tacos and oh my goodness: I LOVE all of the flavor that these little guys pack and talk about yummy crunch! These will definitely be a repeat purchase!

Finally, I topped my tacos with another Trader Joe's favorite, their salsa.

Super easy and it took me 10 minutes total!

Now, I'm going to go enjoy my tacos and hang out with my boys. <3

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your evening!
