Venturing into Meatless Mondays: Bean Tostadas with Guacamole

So, at the young age of 8, my daughter has learned firsthand that what she eats has an effect on her health.

So, we’ve talked about foods many times: foods that are good for us, foods that are bad for us, and some foods that really have a negative impact on her.

So, the other day in the car, I brought up the concept of Meatless Mondays. By giving her examples of some of the potential meals we could do (and no negatives about meat itself), she was all for it. She was so for it, that she was upset that she had meat for lunch at school the last 2 Mondays.

Little victories!

The best part about Meatless Mondays is that a lot of vegetarian dishes are also quick and easy to prepare, a definite positive for a Monday night after a busy weekend (any weekend!)

So, for our first official Meatless Monday, I took the easy path and served them something they both love: Bean Tostadas with fresh Guacamole!

Using premade tostada shells and canned beans, the hardest part was making the simplest of guacamoles, and grating the cheeses.

Twenty minutes later, dinner was served!
