Crab and Guacamole Tostadas

Yummmm. I haven't cooked in so long, mainly making things like greek yogurt parfaits or protein smoothies for dinner (or, of course, take out...) since I have larger lunches at work typically and get home later. But today, after two failed attempts Monday and Tuesday, I was determined to cook. Ok, so maybe this recipe is a bit too easy to be called "cooking," but it's been so long since I've cooked dinner that I'm counting it!

I went straight to Whole Foods after finishing a "therapy run" (that's what I've decided to call my under-4 mile runs -- they're just mind-clearing and make me feel good). For the first time in forever, they had crab meat! It was a sign... I had to make this dish. It's full of healthy fats, lots of protein, and is super filling. I couldn't finish my three tostadas and gave the third to my boyfriend to finish. (Apologies for the terrible camera work, I was using my Blackberry while cooking!)

Crab and Guacamole Tostadas
Serves 2 people.
1.5 cups crabmeat
1 cup guacamole
6 corn tortillas
lime juice
cumin powder
chili powder

1. Heat up a pan and spray with a bit of cooking spray. Start laying your tortillas in the pan, flipping after roughly 30 seconds, to heat them up. Lay out the warmed-up tortillas on your serving plates.

2. Start spreading your guacamole as a base on the tortillas.

3. Add the crabmeat on top, then sprinkle with salt, cumin, and chili powder to taste.

4. Squeeze a little bit of lime juice over the top, then serve and enjoy!

And for dessert...
I finished dinner with some banana "ice cream" by using my food processor to blend a frozen banana, a tiny squeeze of chocolate syrup, a tablespoon of protein powder, a drizzle of agave syrup, and about 1/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. My boyfriend couldn't tell what it was -- he just kept making "mmmm" sounds!

Any recommended healthy recipes for crab? Anyone else a fan of banana "ice cream"??
