Megan’s Comments:

When planning meals, it is also helpful to have ‘nights’ for things so you always know what you are going to cook for the week. For example: taco night, burger night, pizza night, stiry fry night, salad night. . . and each time you can mix it up with the vegetables and proteins you use.

Lately we have been having nacho nights around these parts. One, because it is an easy way to load in whatever veggies you have, and two, because it is great to have when you have people over for a football or baseball game!

Notes:

I usually use plantain or sweet potato chips for this

You can load in whatever veggies and greens you have on hand

I sometimes avoid the cheese altogether and add extra avocado- but fee free to use whatever cheese you would like. Goat, sheep, or raw preferred

You can also use any protein you would like for this: ground turkey, buffalo, beef, shredded chicken, or beans

Dr Jockers Comments:

Many of my clients LOVE corn and white potato chips but we steer them clear of those for a variety of reasons. Corn and potato are both very starchy and high glycemic and impact blood sugar, cause insulin surges that increase inflammation throughout the body. These foods are like gasoline on a fire…they burn us up on the inside.

Additionally, most store-bought chips (even organic ones) use vegetable oils such as corn oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, etc.  These oils are high in omega 6 fatty acids and are extremely inflammatory for the body as well.

Sweet potatoes are a MUCH better option when it comes to making your own chips.  Using grass-fed butter or coconut oil is a significantly healthier choice.  Adding in anti-oxidant rich herbs and veggies makes this a fun, super delicious and nutrient dense dish!

  1. I am interested in trying this recipe although When I printed it, I got 13 inches of color pictures that used up too much of my ink. Could you please keep our costs in mind when you post the recipes. I do love getting them, however color ink is expensive. Love seeing pictures of the boys too and your site in general.

      1. Dr. Jockers, It is still 5 pages long, includes an ad and 2 colored copies of your photo, and some other comments, which isn’t really necessary, all this using the print button. Looks delish!

  2. I would really like to print your recipes but I usually don’t because even with using the print button at the end of the recipe…ALL the pictures and the blog information are also included in the printing. I usually end up having to cut and paste into a word document. There are so many other recipe blogs that allow you to click on print and just recipe prints……
