This was the last intense workout before my half marathon on Sunday - it is just a tune up race for the marathon but I am excited to see how it goes.
Post workout last night, I made the best meal ever. We had leftover Skinny Mac and Cheese from Sunday and Tacos from Monday so I combined them for the best recovery meal.
I used a large piece of romaine lettuce and wrapped it around the hard taco shell so in case the shell broke, the taco insides would not fall out. It worked perfectly plus I got some good veggies with my dinner.
Mac 'n Cheese Tacos
1 hard taco shell
1/2 cup ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning
1/2 cup leftover mac and cheese
1/2 tomato, diced
1 piece of romaine lettuce
Heat the hard taco shell in the oven for a few minutes. Remove carefully and then fill with taco meat (I used ground beef but you could use anything). Layer on leftover mac and cheese then top with tomatoes. Place romaine lettuce on bottom of the taco to prevent spillage. Add any extra toppings or condiments as desired. DEVOUR!
This was so good and I have just enough to make one more taco. It looks like Thursdays post run recovery meal may be very similar!
