Big Mac Tater Tot Nachos

Hey, yes, I’m back already! Since tomorrow is Remembrance Day here in Canada, I will be posting my weekly recipe video early in order to pay my respects – especially to my grandpa, who fought in World War II.

Well, you’ll be happy to hear I’m posting early because I’ve got a fast food favourite to heal the soul after quite a bit of bad news this week.

That’s usually how things seem to work, right?

We stuff our faces downwards into a big bowl of butternut squash ravioli bake or shawarma fries and just call it a day, praying that food will solve all of our problems.

I’ve had a rough time trying to find the energy to work this week.

I’m not sure if the US election has just exhausted me, or whether it’s the whole getting dark at 4pm thing, or if I should just stop trying to work 12 hour days on creative projects when I know my brain can only handle so much.

Yeah, maybe I’m just mentally exhausted.

Physically, I feel okay – I’ve kind of been withholding this information from you, but I’ve officially lost 20lbs and reached my goal weight of 120lbs!

I know, the irony of saying this and then introducing you to a giant pile of Big Mac Tater Tot Nachos LOL.

But I’m still very excited about this. Ever since I moved home to my parents’ place in March I have been working really hard on my health and fitness.

Working from home has definitely been easier for meal planning, but I’m actually away and on the run quite a few weekends out of the month seeing friends and handling business (like a boss lady I might add), and I also work around food for work, so there’s also the whole trying to eat healthy but not wanting to waste food thing.

So don’t get me wrong I’m thrilled about the progress I’ve made and happy that I have re-committed to health and vitality and whole foods and yada yada, but sometimes a girl’s just gotta pig out.

And that’s what these Big Mac Tater Tot Nachos are made for: WHEN YOU JUST NEED A BREAK FROM IT ALL.

Even when things are just going all wrong in the world. I am convinced that food heals ALL.

    This is so perfect! I had to go on an extremely low fat diet for a while and Burger King’s Big Mac commercials were KILLING me. It was the first thing I put on my list of stuff I wanted to eat once I could eat normal again. Also, I’m eating my feelings right now because of the election and I think this would hit the spot.

    These tator tots sound wonderful. I love Big Macs, even though I have maybe once a year. But these tator tots would worth every calorie.
