I could eat tacos every day. Anyone else with me in solidarity? We here at Pink Fortitude respect everyone’s healthy nutrition protocols. I’ve spent hours collaborating with some of my favorite bloggers, and reading through recipes on Pinterest to bring these recipes to you. And I literally couldn’t stop. Just when I thought I was finished, I found another delicious recipe. Scan… drool… pin… oh who am I kidding? Just skip to the desserts!

Always be sure to check the ingredients to ensure they follow your nutrition protocol. And enjoy your Cinco de Mayo celebration!

Sometimes you need to make breakfast for an Army. It can be a holiday breakfast or brunch, for a large family, or when guests are visiting. Or, if you are a busy mom and want to make one breakfast that will last all week (and even can go in the freezer), this Crock Pot Fiesta Breakfast Casserole is perfect. It's special enough for a special occasion, and since it's made in the slow cooker, it's easy enough for every day. This Southwest style Tex-Mex casserole also has three options - comfort, Paleo, or Whole30 depending on your nutrition protocol. Get the recipe...

Dips

 

Sometimes in life, you want the concept of guacamole, but not all of the zing and guac-ness. I wanted to try something a little different for Cinco de Mayo... Game Day... or... well... for pretty much any day. This guacamole is a little milder and less zingy. It's also creamier for a dip or to be used as a dressing on your sandwich. You may just call it the softer side of Guac! Oh and PS - this Guacamole Dip and Dressing is naturally gluten-free, vegan, Whole30, paleo, and keto.

Sour cream is one of those foods that makes a recipe go from delicious to perfection. But what if you are dairy free? This vegan sour cream fills the void. It's creamy and tart and just as good as the traditional version.

Vegan Chipotle Queso (GF) from V Nutrition and Wellness

 

 

Cilantro Lime Salsa from Stacey Homemaker

 

 

Many people think about sweet treats and #PSL during pumpkin season. There are so many different flavor options for this orange squash. This Smokey Chipotle Pumpkin Hummus is sure to please. The smokey chipotle flavoring takes this pumpkin flavor to a whole new level. Use it as an appetizer for your autumn party, during game day, or even as a spread on your favorite sandwich. It's gluten free and vegan of course, and keto friendly in moderation.  Get the recipe... #pumpkin #hummus #recipe #appetizer #pinkfortitude

Drinks

 

This festive DharmaRita cocktail is perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any summer soiree. For those of us who can't or won't drink for whatever reason, it's a great idea to have some mocktails on hand.
