Carne Guisada and Mexican Coleslaw

Tonight I substituted ground turkey meat for the ground beef in my "CARNE GUISADA" recipe. Like the addition of fresh diced poblano peppers and sauteed onions which add flavor but also to make the recipe go a little further.

Apple Cider Vinegar in the "Mexican Coleslaw" allowed the coleslaw to have a bright taste. Refreshing and a welcome change to the regular milky looking coleslaw dressing we are all so used to seeing.

The Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas were to die for! No butter, they did not need it! Instead of the plain "All Purpose" tortillas I replaced 1/4 of the weight of the flour with WHOLE WHEAT flour. Bought a scale to measure out flour by weight and began using it!

Note:  Big change!!! Noticed that my weight has dropped a couple of pounds in the last two weeks by tweaking the ingredients and walking 30 minutes a day x 4 times a week, doing Hatha Yoga most days of the week for at least 15 minutes. Drinking more water, using olive oil, fresh garlic, sea salt, and using complex carbs and lots of fresh vegetables. Only one WW tortilla at a meal twice a day.
