Jane’s Healthy Nachos

John and I returned home from a gathering where nachos were served and determined that there must be a way to make these healthy–loaded with protein and veggies minus the unhealthy fats, carbs, and extra salt.  We created something we love using organic sprouted corn tortillas at the base loaded with organic fat-free refried pintos, avocado, tomato, red onion, orange pepper, black olives and nacho jalepenos with salsa and fat-free greek yogurt for dipping. Serve with romaine and our creamy cilantro dressing on the side, and you have a complete meal. Enjoy!

  1. Hi Cathy! Thank you for your question. I have found these sprouted corn tortillas at Whole Foods. I find them in the frozen section. I’m sure they are at other stores as well.

    As others find them elsewhere, please let us know!

    Thank you so much! Jane

  2. We are so much enjoying your recipes! It’s so satisfying to learn to cook something that is healthy,
    easy to make, good to share. Thank you so much for those ideas! I now use white balsamic
    vinegar and enjoy the taste so much more!

    Grateful,
    Mike (your patient) & Dianne Gaschler

    • Hi Mike and Dianne,

      Thank you so much for your very kind comments and words of support! We have tried to share our family favorite recipes. Hopefully, through these recipes you are discovering a love of vegetables of all kinds. Just last night we ate Jane’s Healthy Pad Thai dish for family dinner (https://drjohnday.com/recipe/healthy-pad-thai/). Our kids loved it.

      John
