Do you ever feel like everything that is sooo delicious is sooo bad for you? It's just cruel and unfair!
But it doesn't have to be that way. Let's examine: The Taco.
Delicious. I don't know about you, but I could eat tacos every day, all day. And they really can provide you with everything you need-- proteins, carbs, veggies, fruit. Load 'em up however you want.
And they don't have to be unhealthy! Leave out the oils, limit the cheese, use greek yogurt instead of sour cream, buy quality tortillas or get rid of them all together. The best part about making these little adjustments is the taco remains tasty and packed with flavor!
Here are 10 tasty taco recipes of all varieties that will keep you satisfied and won't bust the belly!
1. Skinny Chicken Tacos
Love her healthy ingredients and attention to flavor! The chipotle sauce is made with Greek yogurt, a great replacement for those spicy mayos out there.
2. Taco Stuffed Peppers
Creative idea to replace the tortilla with a bell pepper. Crunchy and cut the carbs if you so choose!
3. Loaded Guacamole Vegetarian Tacos
Pack the guac with flavor, and you don't even need cheese?! Not to mention avocado is a great source of the healthy fats we need.
4. Grilled Salmon Tacos with Avocado Salsa
We know salmon is good for us, but sometimes it sounds boring-- until you throw it on a tortilla with delicious salsa. Boom.
5. Roasted Cauliflower and Chick Pea Tacos
For a meatless option, these sound amazing with the right flavors and lime crema. Mmmmmm.
6. Greek Tacos
Put a gyro spin to your taco!
7. Slow Cooker Al Pastor Tacos
Pastor tacos topped with pineapple are to die for. And you don't even have to be hands on--throw in the slow cooker and let the flavors do their thing!
8. Turkey Taco Lettuce Wraps
Another option to skip the tortilla (and use lettuce without feeling like you're eating a boring salad).
9. Carne Asada Street Tacos
Have you ever had street meat? Legit. Sometimes the most delicious things are the most simple.
10. Chipotle Lime Shrimp Tacos
I recommend replacing the reduced fat sour cream with Greek yogurt, or just stick to the real thing.
