Natural Nutrition for your family
It’s Taco Tuesday on a Wednesday! Our family loves Taco Night. Especially my youngest – he practically eats his weight in tacos. He’s four-years-old and typically eats 6-8 tacos for dinner. With a little body packing in so many tacos, I want to make them as nutritious as possible. Here are 5 tips for getting the most out of your family’s taco night.
DIY taco seasoning means no hidden allergens or preservatives. I mixed 5 tsp kosher salt, 3 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp chili powder, 2 tsp paprika and 3-4 Tbsp of xylitol (use natural sweetener of your choice). Mix well and store in airtight container.
Mix in 2 Tbsp of DIY Taco Seasoning for every pound of browned ground meat.
I use organic ground turkey or grass-fed beef,
Don’t forget the avocados. Avocados offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals in every serving. They are low in sugar, contain fiber, and are high in monounsaturated fat, a “good” fat that helps lower bad cholesterol.
Why stop at just lettuce and tomato? Cilantro, shredded carrots and cucumbers are just a few examples of veggies that can add a delicious and nutritious crunch to your taco.
If you’re staying away from GMO foods like corn, try white bean chips. These are certified Non-GMO and taste great. I love them crushed up in my taco salad.
