Hey Weight Loss Nation!

I have Guilt Free Nachos for you today!

I Love Nachos! I have been avoiding them like the plague……until now!

I have put together a healthy, GUILT-FREE Recipe for Nachos.

Now…..I can have them, because I thought about it and I was “mindful” about it. In Episode 016, I gave you awesome tips on alternatives to Potato Chips. You may swap out the Sweet Potato for any of the other options I mentioned in that episode for your Nachos!

Here’s the Recipe!

Ingredients

½ Cup Minced Rosemary

1 TBLS Chili Powder

1 tsp Black Pepper

½ Cup Chopped Lettuce

½ Cup Diced Tomatoes

2 TBLS of Grated Parmesan Cheese

¼ Cup of Daiya Cheddar Style Shred

Tools Needed

Mandolin for slicing -  You can pick up a hand-held one on Amazon.com for as little as $14.99, or a more professional version for around $29.00.

Pastry Brush for Olive Oil
