Spring is back and so are our clean appetites

Time to dust off the winter warmer cravings and eating more fresh and wholesome raw foods again.

Now I’m not dissing carbs, because lord only know hows much I love ’em. But this is certainly a delicious tex-mex way to cut back and still enjoy the comfort of tacos – plus they’re gluten free!

These low carb lettuce leaf tacos are just the perfect dinner to please everyone.

  • You could even go dark green with kale instead of lettuce leaves.
  • Instead of lentils and beans, you could swap in tempeh, or fish.
  • And if your time-strapped, pre-bought taco seasoning will stand in for DIY

Don’t be daunted by the ingredients list – it seems big, but they’re all morsels that can be whipped up in a jiffy.

Get crunchin’ munchkins!
