I love tacos and have tried over the past couple years of my healthy journey to figure out how I can eat them, frequently and not feel guilty. Tacos can be very unhealthy and I LOVE Mexican food so I was NOT going to stop eating them. I have found that making my taco meet a few ways to do this.

I have started growing my own herbs and a lot of them. In fact I grow 10 and next year will add a few more to the mix. I have found that making taco meet and flavoring with herbs is “key” when needing to cut down the sodium. I add whatever comes to mind and I have a taste for at the time. Then I add some cayenne pepper and Chile powder. This allows me to get away from using the prepackaged seasoning, which is mostly salt.

Instead of using grown beef I use ground turkey. I do not like the turkey that has mostly white meat though. On the fat ratio I think it is 97/5 and I buy the 85/15 one. So it is not quite as good, fat and calorie wise then the 97 but still a whole lot better than beef. If I use the 85/15 meat then it does not taste like turkey. Read the rest of this entry »
