Fish Taco Bowls

It’s our last night of vacation and I’m feeling a bit conflicted.

On the one hand I miss my girls like WHOA.

On the other hand, I’m more than happy to stay at least one more night. I mean, we’ve only tried 4 of the 9 restaurants and the foodie in me is totally shaking her head with disapproval.

So much to eat…so little time.

I’m not going to lie. It’s 10:23pm CST and I might’ve just ordered enchiladas and cheesecake because…VACATION. Don’t judge me. Calories on this trip need not be counted. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics will come revoking my license and then what?

For the record, I can totally NOT be a SAHM. They’re super heroes and I am not.

When we get back, we’ve got 3 days to…

  1. Adjust the 1 hour forward back to EST. Fine, okay.
  2. Grocery shop. I can see the back of my fridge and…yeah, not okay.
  3. Game plan the next week as our post-vacay “diet”. Not really a diet, but my diet (as in, my actual intake) demands the color green and refuses excesses of all things alcohol (cue ALL THE TEARS).

I’ve joked with Mr. Prevention that we’re due to revisit Whole30. While he laughs in my face, I’m saying, “BUT, BUT, BUT…FISH TACO BOWLS, YO!!” Because, really, this gem of a #Whole30 recipe makes life worth living and reminds me, just a bit, that Mexico is a place I’m saying, “See ya soon!” to…not a “Goodbye forever!” to.

    I’m not doing Whole 30, but I’m trying to reduce carbs a bit, so I’ve been looking at your Whole 30 recipes. This sounded so good. I’ve made it two nights this week! Love the seasoning blend and the combo of all the flavors! I pickled some red onion and put it on top!

    When I was in the Maldives, we went on a tour of the fish market and it was probably the most vomit-inducing experience of my life so I don’t blame you for buying your fish from the grocery store. You’re braver than I am to even write about it! Enough about dead fish…look at all those pretty colours and delicious flavours!
