I see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's been 3 months of morning/all day sickness and I am finally beginning to feel good enough to get back to my life! I am still going to take it slow, this pregnancy has forced me to take a step back and see that it is ok not to do it all. I love what I do with my blog, and have so much I want to accomplish, but I am going to take it all slowly, one step at a time. That being said, I am excited for the future and all the new things I want to roll out! For now, enjoy this extremely simple, healthy and delicious recipe!
A random pregnancy craving was the reason behind this creation. I am slowly starting to feel like eating veggies again, but mostly cold crisp ones. I felt like something sweet and salty, and tacos sounded good. There is zero oil in this, oil has actually not agreed well with me so you may see more oil free recipes. I love how quick and easy this is to put together, but yet so flavorful. There are a lot of different flavors here: sweet, salty, tangy with a hint of spice in the chili powder. It hit the spot perfectly for this growing belly of mine!

As a serious Mexican food lover, this recipe is definitely one that i will be recreating. These tacos look delicious, healthy and full of yummy flavour. Thanks for the recipe and idea!
Thank you! They are great tasting and so healthy!
Mmmm, these tacos look so good. And that mango sauce! Yum! I've never used lentils in tacos before, but I'll have to give this a try soon. Hope you feel better, and thanks for a great recipe!
Thank you! Lentils in our tacos is a staple for us, sometimes if I'm really lazy I use the precooked lentils from Trader Joes and sprinkle some taco seasoning on them and mix it. Then use it as is for taco filling! It's not as good as this but great if you feel like minimal work. Lol. Hope you enjoy, thanks for following!
These taco are AMAZING! Fantastic recipe that is easy AND delicious! This has gotten me excited to start making my own dressings......
Yay! So glad you liked them! I love how really easy they are. And dressings are so simple to make, and so much better for you than store bought. I can't remember the last time I bought dressing! Thanks for trying them!
Looks great! I'm always looking for new ways to eat lentils. Hope you feel better soon.
Thank you so much Carrie! Slowly but surely I'm beginning to see the light at the end of the sick tunnel. Hope you enjoy the tacos!
