& The Top 101 Foods that FIGHT Aging

Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite healthy Lean-Body meal plans that I absolutely love. I've been having this recipe for lunch every day this week and I just never get tired of it... it's such a delicious and refreshing combo of flavors! 

Alright, here goes...

My Healthy Mexican Fat Loss Recipe

The quantity I've used here will make about 5-6 servings... hence, why I've been eating it all week :)

  • 1-lb of cooked diced chicken breast (can also use shrimp in this recipe for variety)
  • 2 medium vidalia onions diced
  • 1 large bunch of cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 small jar (10 or 12 oz) of salsa
  • about 3 ripe avocados
  • 1-2 large limes
  • about 10-12 round flat tostada shells (avoid any that are fried in soybean oil or hydrogenated oils of any kind... I found a brand of tostada shells at a health food store that are fried in much healthier coconut oil). If you can't find those, use soft organic corn tortillas instead or something that's not fried in oil.  Another option if you want to avoid the corn tostada shells is to use lettuce wraps for this instead, which would be the lowest carb and healthiest choice.

Mix the diced chicken, diced onion, chopped cilantro, and jar of bean and corn salsa all together in a large bowl. Spoon out some of the mixture from the bowl onto each of the tostadas, and then top with some diced avocado (I use about 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado for each tostada). Then slice off a couple of fresh lime wedges and squeeze the fresh lime juice on top of each tostada.

Enjoy! The combination of lime, cilantro, vidalia onion, and avocado produces an explosion of flavors that I think you'll love.

It's a very refreshing, delicious, and healthy meal. And please don't ruin this healthy meal by washing it down with a gut-fattening soda or a chemically-laden diet soda either. Choose either water or a home brewed iced green, white, or red tea blend, and your body will thank you.

A quick word about the tostada shells... As I mentioned above, the only reason I even considered eating the tostada shells is that I found a variety at a local organic market that is fried in healthy coconut oil. Chances are you will not find this at any normal grocery store, as most brands will be fried in either hydrogenated oils, trans fats (which are pure poision to the body), or the still damaging and highly refined soybean or cottonseed oils. Your best bet may just be to avoid the tostada shells and try soft corn tortillas or lettuce wraps instead.  Just make sure to choose organic corn tortillas to avoid the genetically modified corn that is so prevalent in our food supply.

If you're new to some of the information I teach here and don't yet understand why coconut oil is better for you than soybean and other highly processed polyunsaturated oils, then this article that I wrote is a must-read:
