I think I'm going to bookmark this page and try the fish taco recipe. Yum. As for the kale smoothie, I made one last week not believing I'd actually like it. But it was actually really good. Have you tried kale chips? So easy and so good. My kids love the crunch.

They both look so yummy! Do you buy your tilapia from costco too? I am always afraid to buy frozen fish

MMM, I'll have to try Kale shake. Our favorite is a spinach shake! Banana, spinach, protein powder, milk, walnuts. (Sometimes throw in berries or cocoa) Soo delicious!
