Healthy Tacos // by Mary Shirley
Hi! This is Mary with Love of Veggies, previously Gold Layer Cake. Weeknight dinners are usually thrown together pretty quickly, and I make every effort to keep them as healthy as possible. Sometimes you just want a taco, but you don't want to ruin the workout you just spent the last hour sweating for. Maybe thats just me. I made a healthified taco, and I'll have to admit I didn't miss the taco shell. I used Romaine Lettuce Hearts as the taco shell. The lettuce held all the ingredients pretty well or at least as well as a taco shell usually holds up. The lettuce had the crunch, just like a taco shell, but it just left the taco tasting fresh and allowed more focus on the taco fillings. I did add a little bit of Trader Joe's Spicy Soy & Flaxseed Tortilla chips on top. These tacos could easily be made into a vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, or meat lovers version. Check out the recipe at my blog Love of Veggies.
