The Whole 30: Day 11

Last night’s Taco Fiesta was a huge success!  I highly recommend the recipe for making your own taco seasoning!  My guests enjoyed a full fledged taco bar with all the fixings… cucumber, bell peppers, jalapeños, fresh salsa, lettuce, lime wedges, and fresh cilantro.  It’s important to remember that even tho we may be cutting our dairy, sugar, and grains, it doesn’t mean that we are cutting out flavor!  Spices like paprika, cumin, and crushed chili flakes help bring a seemingly regular weekday meal to life with major flavor and appeal.  Because lets be honest – we are not going to make 30 days by just eating eggs and grilled chicken.
 
Last night was also my first time experiencing the Eurovision Song Contest.  And man… was that an experience!  Here were my personal top three votes.  And for all the other Eurovision newbies out there like me, you can not vote for your home country.  So Sweden won my heart but could not have my vote!
