National Taco Day? Well here are some healthy tips to keep you on track with your health and fitness goals and a Taco Recipe Round-up


Say what?
National taco day???
Enter shocked emoji here. 

I am on day 2 of a program. I have plenty of times that I can indulge and have what I want. I go for healthy, not necessarily a ripped body. But, I have been a little too slack lately and it is time to pull in the reigns and stop making excuses. Basically, I am ready to say goodbye to my muffin tops I gained from one too many Moscow Mules on Safari in Africa. It was worth it at the time. I am ALL about work hard, play hard. My friends... it is time to WORK HARD! 

Don't get it twisted. I WILL still be partaking in National Taco day. I am an American Citizen for goodness sake! I just have learned to make my taco's "clean". I also have learned to eat 2 not 4. 
True story.

Tip #1 I always use organic non-gmo corn tortillas. After cancer, I will always and forever be PRO-NonGMO. 

Tip #2: Swap out the sour cream for wholesome organic Greek yogurt. Tastes the same and SO MUCH better for ya. 

Tip #3: Bake or steam your shells instead of frying them. You lose a majority of the fat and calories by doing this. 

Tip #4: Swap the cheese for Avocado. It gives a rich creamy taste and you hardly know you are missing the cheese. It is a healthy fat swap your body will thank you for. 

Tip #5 Add extra protein rich greens like spinach and kale to your taco salad mixture. 


Here are some of my favorite Taco recipes you can "healthify" with the above tips.
