Tacos are a surefire crowd pleaser and healthy to boot! That is, if you use the right ingredients. In order to load up on the good stuff and avoid the bad – keep these taco tips in mind when choosing your ingredients:
Avoid the following – fried or breaded fish or chicken, too much cheese or sour cream, refried beans
Enjoy these healthy ingredients and sides – veggies, Greek yogurt as a sour cream substitute, black beans, salsa, grilled fish or poultry, lean pork or beef & healthy fats via the avocado.
Now, what makes the perfect taco? Well start with your shell – corn or flour, soft or crunchy. Fit tip – If you’re watching your carbs, try wrapping your tacos in lettuce.
On the inside- fish, chicken, ground turkey or pork are great options. Then it’s time to add in your extras with a rainbow of colorful veggies.
