My pregnancy cravings have been off the charts lately anything from donuts to Indian food to tacos. Unfortunately, every time I drive to my house I have to go past a fast food taco restaurant. As a kid I used to eat at a fast food taco place weekly because it was my mom’s favorite fast food restaurant and I always got their crispy tacos. Now as an adult and someone who has a gluten-free sensitivity and not a fan of fast food when my taco cravings hit it was hard for me not to pull into the drive thru.
Fix Approved Healthy Tacos
A couple Tuesdays ago I decided we were going to finally knock that craving out and have some really yummy tacos. I bought some non-GMO organic taco shells, some ground turkey meat and of course I load everything with veggies and my favorite healthy fat avocados. Of course I did not do this alone I got all of my kids involved chopping vegetables and adding spices. They even helped me take photos of my yummy tacos to share with all of you.
