A Message, A Meal, and A Mouthful…All In One Minute

Anyone trying to visit my video site,livelife365.com, has probably figured out by now that something is up.  No, not the site—that, sadly, has been taken down for the time being.  I decided I needed to change things up, shop around for a new host and server, and had to put the vid site on ice for a few weeks.  The good news: I plan on making it bigger and better, while still loaded with hundreds of self-help videos ranging from diet and nutrition, motivation and inspiration, music and humor.

In the meantime, I appreciate your continued support of this blog over the years.  Thanks. 

And remember, you can also watch many of my videos at my channel on YouTube.  Almost 250,000 people have already viewed them, with hundreds more watching every day.
 
My latest video is for those of us who are in search of a healthy, delicious, vegetarian, and fast meal.  How fast?  How does one minute sound?  Of course, when you consider some prep work, it may cost you all of five minutes—still, not bad for something that tastes so good.  Check out my black bean tacos:



The best part about these tacos are they are loaded with veggie protein, high in healthy fiber, very low in saturated fats and sodium, and simple to make:

organic black beans
corn tortillas
chopped tomatoes
grated sharp cheddar and Monterey jack cheese
shredded lettuce
avocado
organic salsa (make it yourself—I will, in a soon-to-be-produced VEG OUT WITH MIKE)

Two of these tasty tacos will net you around 27gs of protein; 15g fiber; 500mgs of sodium, with only 5gs of sat fat, and that's if you use cheese made from dairy.  If you opt for vegan cheese, you will virtually eliminate all sat fats.  Total calories: 500, which is amazingly low for such a gut-filling meal.

Again, I thank you for your continued support and patronage and look forward to sharing hundreds of more videos and blog posts in the coming months and years.  Be on the lookout for a new music video about the benefits of  drinking green tea every day, a couple of books that I have been working on for a while, and lots more.
 
Until next time…

peace,

Mike

This helps me to try to eat healthier. I am using my Montel Williams blender to make all kinds of fun things to eat!

Authentic Woman said...

That black bean taco looks real yummy.
Ummmm, just one question --What can I use to substitute for that "grated sharp cheddar and Monterey jack cheese" and still have a similar taste to it?

betchai said...

Great tacos, love black beans. I like the heat so some chilis or jalapenos would be an added kick for me!

Hi Mike! I've done almost exactly the same but as a burrito - something about the melted cheese....
My internet at the lake this summer is not fast enough to watch videos - boy I miss them - but look forward to your new ones!

Wow, so quick and so healthy. This could be solution for school kitchens. Instead unhealthy sandwiches, kids could make themselves healthy meal of their choice.

Nutritionist Salary said...

Sounds like a great reciipe Good nutrition is important. A nutritionist salary and the ability to help people can make being a nutritionist a rewarding career.
