Dinner tonight was nice & simple- but good! Taco salad!
I mixed black beans & corn with paprika, chili powder, and cumin, then served it on a bed of chopped lettuce with salsa, avocado, crushed tortilla chips, and a little cheese.
So quick yet so good 🙂

How did you do?!
You guys are smarty pants, but not one person got ALL 4 answers correct!
1. 20% correct
2. 20% correct
3. 53% correct
4. 60% correct
These questions were asked to a group of 523 registered voters in California.
– NO ONE answered all 4 questions correctly
– <1% got 3 out of 4 correct
– 5% got 2 out 4 correct
– 68% got ZERO correct answers
(These questions were asked at the conference I was at last week- in a room full of 200+ RDs, 2 people got all 4 questions right.)
What does this tell us?
Even if you are well educated about food & health, there is just no way to know what’s in our food. Your omelet will be different than my omelet, which will be different from Denny’s omelet!
How does this make you feel about posting nutrition information on menus?!
I think it’d be a great tool to help people make healthy choices- I can’t wait for more places to hop on board!
