Quickie nutritious fish tacos

 Quick & healthy fish tacos


High Liner Tortilla Crusted Tilapia (from Costco)or your favorite fish baked
Sweet Kale vegetable salad kit (Von's, Smart and Final, Costco) prepared
Grated cheddar cheese optional
Sliced avocado
Wheat tortillas, soft-taco size

This Tilapia I found at Costco which is great for a large family, but you can also find smaller amounts in your grocery store.

 This is the salad for the fish taco recipe .  Believe it or not, with the cranberries, poppy-seed dressing etc. which is included it tastes great!  And ridiculously healthy. 
Von's  carries it, smart n final  and Costco.  The one at Von's is not a huge bag.  Ignore the date and use it within a day or two as it doesn't keep well!  Your Von's should have it? I also use it instead of lettuce on sandwiches which is also good.

Salad put together will look like this:
This salad mix  alone makes a really yummy good salad!

I use this really easy to use tortilla warmer, and if you can get one it works great for heating up all your tortillas at once.


Place baked fish on heated tortillas, top with prepared salad, add cheese if desired, and garnish with sliced avocado

Blend of fresh fruit makes this a tasty low fat summer meal or perhaps add Lean Cuisine's Santa Fe-Style rice and beans to fill up those hungry kids!

Three Healthy Pops Aloha Green & Vitamin C

Recipes: Aloha Green Pops Can't forget dessert. These gorgeous (and guilt-free) popsicles might melt before you get to the park, but they're perfect for a backyard picnic -- which is sometimes the best kind, anyhow.

Ingredients (serves 6):
1 cup coconut water
1 cup pineapple juice
5 cups mixed greens
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
6 fresh strawberries, sliced thin
1/2 fresh mango, peeled and cut into thin slices (or extra frozen mango chunks, sliced thin)
6 small paper cups and wooden popsicle sticks, or a popsicle mold

Add all ingredients (excluding the fresh fruit), in order, into a blender. Blend until smooth. Press 4 to 6 slices of fresh strawberries and mangos around the sides of your molds or paper cups, then pour in popsicle mix very gently to avoid disturbing the fruit. You want the fruit to show its bright color on the surface of the pops, so depending on your equipment, you may want to do add the fruit in stages, freezing the mixture into a slushy consistency between additions to hold the fruit in place. When the molds are filled, insert popsicle sticks and freeze until set.

Here's a great recipe for anyone who feels a cold coming on or needs some extra vitamin C



  • 2 packets of Emergen-C vitamin drink mix
  • 12 ounces of filtered water
  • Popsicle molds


Mix your favorite flavor of Emergen-C drink mix with water, pour into popsicle molds, freeze and enjoy! A healthy and yummy frozen treat with the vitamin, antioxidant, and electrolyte power of Emergen-C.
Serves 2



Vanilla Cream

  • 1 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Orange Cream

  • 3 packets of Emergen-C Kidz® Orange vitamin drink mix
  • 1/2 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey


Mix the ingredients for the vanilla cream in a medium bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the ingredients for the orange cream. Let flavors meld for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place a large plate in the freezer. Using a popsicle mold, freeze the vanilla cream according to the popsicle mold directions. Once frozen, dip the pops in the orange cream to coat, using a spoon to help cream stick on any hard-to-reach surfaces. Place dipped ice pops on the cold plate and place back in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then, dip pops in orange cream for a second time, and freeze for an additional 15 minutes.
