We’ve all been there- making those New Year’s resolutions that we don’t actually keep. However, this year can actually be your year. It’s time to stick to that weight loss resolution and finally meet your goals, all without having to give up the best food in the world (we’re talking about tacos, of course).
You know that infamous saying “You can have your cake and eat it too”? Well, in this case, you can actually have your tacos and devour them without feeling guilty. There are a bunch of healthy taco recipes out there that are under 310 calories. So, when you eat these, you don’t have to worry about gaining all of that post-holiday weight. Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite healthy taco recipes.
Shrimp tacos are a classic option for anyone counting calories. What’s awesome about a shrimp tacos is that not only is it a low-calorie treat, but you can also pile it high with a bunch of complementary vegetables. It’s the perfect food for the summer, too, so if you’re looking to throw a taco party, reach out to the event catering company you’re working with to make sure shrimp is on the taco bar.
Chicken is another great lean meat for healthy tacos. Chicken tacos are loaded with beneficial protein and spices, and it’ll only put you back about 250 calories. You can also top them off with lettuce, tomatoes, and salsa without feeling like you’re completely ruining your weight loss resolution. Salsa has recently become the number one condiment nationwide, which passes ketchup and mayo by a landslide. Likewise, tortillas have been outselling hot dog buns since 2010.
An interesting spin on the popular Mexican food is to skip the carbs and strictly use vegetables. Instead of wrapping your taco up in a carb-heavy shell, use a piece of lettuce instead! Lettuce wraps are the perfect option if you’re looking for something filling that won’t make you feel like you ate too much.
Black Bean and Veggie Tacos
One last really healthy taco option is one that is stuffed with black beans and veggies. By mushing the beans up and using it as a spread for the taco shell, it’s packing it with substance, all while keeping you under the 310 calorie range.
You don’t have to give up tacos in order to keep up with your New Year’s resolution. There are so many options, such as those listed above, that will allow you to be healthy while indulging. These options are also perfect for a taco party that is utilizing event catering. Let your event catering service know that you’re looking to stay healthy when crafting the menu. The tacos are so delicious, your guests won’t even know that they’re good for them!
