Taco night is a popular night in most households. For mom, it’s an easy dinner to whip up. For kids, it’s fun to create your own meal and eat with your fingers! There are a few things that can help turn your regular taco night into a “healthified” taco night.
-Choose whole grain tortillas: I like Stacey’s organics @ Gateway Market or Trader Joe’s has some nice varieties.
-Ground beef: good-93%, better-96%, best-grass fed ground beef (I buy from Wallace Farms)
-Choose 2% cheese or better yet omit all together
-Make your own refried beans by mashing up black beans
-Salsa is a wonderful condiment so nothing to change there however you can use fresh tomatoes for a low sodium option
-Diced avocado for a healthy fat addition
What is your favorite item to top a taco with? J would say Cholula!
Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
