The tasty (and healthy) tacos you *need* today

 

Happy National Taco Day! As delicious as tacos are, they aren’t always the healthiest choice when it comes to a good diet (we're looking at you, Taco Bell). Fortunately, your fave Mexican dish can have all the makings of a healthy meal with a balance of protein, fats and carbs. We've picked the perfect, delicious recipes to satisfy your queso-fueled craving. Muy bien!

 

Steak tacos with simple guacamole

This dish is absolutely delish, but still healthy at the same time. Instead of using a mix of cheeses that are known to be high in saturated fat, fill your taco with guacamole. Going with avocado, cilantro and peppers is a better option than Mexican blended cheese. You’ll enjoy the taste just as much, if not more. CLICK HERE for the recipe.

 

Quinoa taco "meat"

For all the vegans out there, you can still celebrate today with just a few substitutions. Whip up some quinoa and your favorite veggies, place them in your choice of taco shell and there ya go. All the flavor, none of the meat. CLICK HERE for the recipe.

 

Cilantro-lime shrimp tacos

Shrimp is a great alternative to your usual chicken or steak and it’s full of iron to give you energy and keep your immune system strong. Win-win. CLICK HERE for the recipe.
