Taco Tuesdays just got a healthy upgrade! But shhhh!!! Nobody will know the difference!
I don’t think I’ve ever met a person who didn’t like Tacos. They are such a fun and easy food to make and eat, and even easier to prepare clean.
I buy my tortillas at Trader Joe’s. There are very few and very simple ingredients in them. Lime, water, and corn. So I know they are as clean as I’m gonna get with a pre-packaged food. (I’ll be making my own corn tortillas very soon, so stay tuned for that recipe).
The great thing about Tacos is you can make them as healthy as you like. Heck, you can even make them vegetarian like I did. That basics of a taco always remain relatively the same. You just have to “upgrade” the toppings and spices to a clean version (The only thing I would avoid is the sour cream. The low-fat and non fat stuff are so loaded with chemicals that there’s no way they qualify as clean – Try non-fat Greek yogurt instead).
