Our Ochsner Fitness Center team of dietitians always encourages our clients to eat a wide variety of foods from all food groups: fruits, vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy and whole grains. I love this recipe, created by Ochsner Health executive chef Marc Gilberti, because it does just that!
These street tacos include all five food groups wrapped up in a warm tortilla. One taco has around 250 calories, 15 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, no added sugar and loads of flavor. Healthy eating doesn’t have to be boring and bland. And with this taco recipe, it’s easy to mix and match ingredients to make it your own!
Change it up by adding your favorite lean protein – think grilled shrimp or fish – and your favorite salsa and taco toppings. Choose produce that is in season for better taste, lower price and higher nutritional value.
