Not your everyday Tacos

Your clean eating guide should include food that you love and tastes good. A common misconception is that eating clean means you give up food you enjoy. Eating food that’s good and good for you just takes an open mind and a little effort. Here’s a few options to revamping your Taco Tuesday, with alternative taco options.

  • Cube some sweet potatoes.
  • Place them onto a prepared baking sheet
  • Add sliced mushrooms
  • Drizzle with olive oil
  • Sprinkle on spices: Paprika, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper
  • Bake
  • Place into gluten free taco shells
  • Top with avocado and citrus aioli 

Brussel Sprout 

Favored for their texture and simplicity all while packing a satisfying flavor

Brussel Sprout, black beans and cabbage
  • Sautéed Brussels Sprouts in 2 tablespoons of olive oil, some dry taco seasoning, 2 tablespoons water
  • Add black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Place into cauliflower taco shells
  • Slice avocado

BBQ Jackfruit 

For when you’re looking for a taco with some familiar ingredients with just a little less fat and calories
