Low-Carb Veggie-Filled Taco Tuesday

Vegan Tacos
By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

I love easy and simple meals that are healthy and light that everyone can enjoy. This dish is particularly great because you can tweak it to best suit you and your guests — adding your favorite toppings, herbs and spices. You can even add some lean or organic grass-fed meat or organic poultry. Serve this delicious meal as a great snack or entrée at either lunch or dinnertime.
