Happy Monday all! Hope you enjoyed my review yesterday of Ellie Krieger’s So Easy. I thought I would give you a little preview of the book and provide you with a few of the So Easy recipes that I made and also modified a bit to make them easier for me. I have for you today Cinnamon Raisin Toast with Honey Walnut Spread, Beef Taco Salad. Let me know how you like them!
1/2 cup of walnut pieces
1/2 cup of plain nonfat Greek yogurt (I use either Chobani or Fage)
2 teaspoons of honey
2 slices of cinnamon raisin toast
1 apple (or peach or pear) , sliced
1.) Toast cinnamon raisin bread in toaster.
2.) Spread Greek yogurt on toast. Sprinkle walnuts on top of toast. Drizzle with honey and top with fruit slices. Enjoy!
1 ripe banana, sliced
6 frozen strawberries
2 cups of fat free milk
1/4 cup of unsalted almonds
2 tablespoons of honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of ice

1 package of lean ground sirloin (90% lean)
1 14 oz can of low-sodium black beans
2 gloves of garlic, minced
1/3 cup of water
1 tablespoon of chili powder (I used a combination of chili powder and chipotle chili powder)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pint of cherry tomatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons of EVOO
2 tablespoons of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 head of romaine lettuce
1/2 cup grated cheese (I used pepper jack)
2 oz of baked tortilla chips
1.) In a large skillet, spray cooking spray and cook meat until no longer pink, breaking up pieces. Add the beans and garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the water, chili powder and cayenne pepper. Stir until combined. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
2.) In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, EVOO, lime juice and salt. Stir to combine.
3.) Place lettuce on plates and top with cheese, meat, tomatoes and crunched up tortilla chips. Enjoy!
