Everyone loves tacos, specially children. Here we have a variation of the traditional taco style where instead of beef we are using mushrooms, walnuts and spices to make the taco meat, perfect for meat-less Mondays. This combination of mushroom and walnut makes it so tasty and crunchy that I promise you wont miss the "beef". If you want to take it a bit further, use Romaine lettuce whole leafs to replace the tacos shells. Much healthier, low in calories and low in fat!
The following Vegan Tahi Coconut Soup is a nice option as an appetizer or main dish. You can always add your favorite julienned vegetables to make it heartier.
As vegetarians(or not), we need to add protein to our bodies. The following recipe is "pumped" with plant-based proteins from beans, seeds and oats. As a vegetarian, this is one of my to go recipes when I want a burger (you don't need to be vegetarian in order to savor this baby!). At The Real Food Academy, we have also made this recipe with hundreds of kids and just after we got their seal of approval (kids can be harsh recipe judges) we decided on going public with it! TIP: Serve it with our Sweet and Tangy Coleslaw with Apples
and top it with avocado slices and sprouts. Next time you have a gathering your guest will be impressed with your new plant-based burger!
Superbowl Sunday is one of those days in America where you know for sure there will be plenty of party foods in every home. Not necessarily this dishes will be the healthiest so we wanted to share our easy version of Fish Tacos which includes an Avocado Cole Slaw that can be served by itself, in wraps or sandwiches. The following recipe is high in mono-saturated fats, phytonutrients, antioxidants and fiber from the avocados, cabbages, radishes, lemon, garlic, and cilantro. So not only you and your family can have a fun and yummy snack, you all can also add the benefits of this real recipe so you can start the week energized! BTW! You can make this recipe with shrimp, sauteed veggies or chicken and place a bottle of Siracha nearby for any hot sauce lover!

Empanadas are the Latin version of a turnover. They cab be filled with just about anything you like. The traditional Picadillo Empanada is made with beef, but here the Real Food Academy "We Don't Change The Dish We Change The Ingredients" therefor we use lean turkey meat.
I honestly can't remember when did we start this tradition in my family, but almost every month we have our Taco Tuesday night and we go all out with it! The following is my own recipe which is easy to make and will feed a family of four...... and a dog! Serve with diced Avocado, shredded Lettuce, diced Tomatoes, sliced Jalapenos Lime wedges, Queso Fresco and Sour Cream.
