Happy Cinco de Mayo Beauties! With so many delicious meals that we can make to celebrate this holiday, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorites! These Cinco de Mayo recipes all have a special twist from something you might find on your traditional menu. From an avocado smoothie to a tempeh taco “meat” salad to a fun spin on a burrito, I hope you will find something here that helps get you in a festive mood!
Now if you an avocado-lover like I am then there is no way you want to skimp out on these green gems this Cinco de Mayo! I can’t ever seem to get enough of these guys. Eating avocados is an amazing way to nourish your skin health and maintain a youthful glow. They are full of compounds that are rich in skin-smoothing beauty vitamins, A, C, and K! And did you know that avocados avocado have one of the highest amino acid contents of all fruit? Well now you know 🙂 Amino acids bond together to make protein so you can understand why I just had to add avocado into this recipe! Start your Cinco de Mayo morning off right and enjoy my Avocado Green Sprout Smoothie Bowl Recipe.
Taco salad is a classic recipe that can really hit the spot this Cinco de Mayo. And instead of loading this recipe with your traditional taco salad ingredients, I’ve added a fun twist to make sure this is plant based and properly food combined! My Tempeh Taco “Meat” Salad recipe is complete enough to serve as a whole meal. It is both meat- and dairy-free, yet has all the creamy and dense protein textures of a traditional Mexican salad. The deliciousness is there, with the added bonus that it’s supportive to our bodies. And with a secondary bonus, you will have lots of yummy leftover Cashew Sour Cream after making this recipe. Be sure to store it in your fridge and enjoy the extras tomorrow by dipping your favorite veggies sticks in it!
If you are going to a celebration at a friend’s house this Cinco de Mayo, bring my Raw Organic Sweet Corn recipe to share! This is super easy to make and so tasty that everyone will be asking for more. Word to the wise, you may just want to double the recipe for that reason! 🙂 Corn has a lot of fiber and natural enzymes, and what I love about organic white corn is that you don’t need to cook it (making it juicier in my opinion). It actually would be a great idea not to cook it, especially in this recipe— keeping the enzymes intact and digesting much easier. Corn also has Vitamin C, which will be preserved if you eat it raw.
It wouldn’t be a fiesta this Cinco de Mayo without enjoying some delicious tacos! And one thing you need to know Beauties is that tacos come in all shapes and sizes. So instead of thinking you have to fill your taco with the traditional meat and cheese, it’s time you get creative and have fun with this dish! That’s exactly how I came upon making my Shiitake Asada Taco recipe. The combination of ingredients in my Shiitake Asada Tacos will help you decrease inflammation as well as give you energy. Think of this as your bloat-free taco recipe, with a huge bonus! What’s the bonus exactly? Well Beauties, this recipe will connect you with medicinal, amazing earthy mushrooms! Now that’s a huge plus for our health and our beauty!
In honor of the Cinco de Mayo holiday, you may feel like a burrito is in order to kick off your celebration. Instead of reaching for your traditional flour tortilla filled with rice and beans, let me blow your mind with a burrito recipe that will leave you feeling free of any bloat. Now this certainly isn’t your traditional burrito recipe Beauties! It’s a delicious burrito version that ‘aint going to weigh you down or make you feel super full and bloated. Ugh! No thanks. Burritos are such a delicious way to wrap up your favorite ingredients all together. Yet, the way that we wrap it up is super important. That is why I made my Feel Free Beauty Burrito recipe. Plus I loaded it with hearty veggies and my favorite beauty sauce! You are going to want to make this dish more than just once a year 🙂
So there you have it Beauties! I hope you enjoy at least one of these delicious Cinco de Mayo recipes this holiday. Be sure to share them with your friends and family too!
