RECIPE: Tasty Tacos... Recipe by Amber Ware


This is a super yummy, super easy mexican meal for you to try totally GUILT FREE from my amazing friend Amber Ware. Amber and I met at pre-natal yoga while we were pregnant. Their was a little bit of small talk in between our meditation and salute to the suns but we really hit it off when our babies were born... only 1 day apart. From the kiddies being 6 weeks old we have met up every thursday for beach front power walks, homemade post-natal exercise classes, park play dates and recipe swap sessions. We have chatted for hours on end, sharing the very first tooth, the first steps, listening to the terrible night we may of had before and giving each other the support to power on to a new day. We have watched each others pride and joys grow into little toddlers as they become the best of friends. Archer and Pia cant get enough of each other, its so beautiful to watch! I'm so lucky to have met such a wonderfully amazing friend and support while entering into the world of motherhood. 
Amber has always been a super healthy outgoing athlete and is a very creative keen cook. With this, she has also found the passion for real food since having little Archer and is currently going through a family journey of self-healing... The results are absolutely amazing and I'm so excited for them. Here is one of her meals that we love love love!

Tasty Taco Tuesdays... Recipe by Amber Ware


When I was training for a triathlon a few years back, I had a fabulous group of training buddies and every Tuesday we all went back to one team members house for Tacos.  Watching our weight and conscious of what we put in our mouths - due to training and the fear of a looming race, these tacos are wallet friendly, really tasty and really good for you to boot!  Proves that you can get the mexican kick without the junky, chemical laden bits too!  To this day, this recipe is a standard in our household!
