Taco Tuesday Recipes

Are Tuesday's Taco Tuesday at your house? Post bariatric surgery they still can be especially if you think outside the tortilla with these lower carb and protein packed options and utilize some of these Taco Tuesday tips to make some slight adaptations.

If you must have the tortilla look for small whole grain tortilla (I use Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita Size when I make my tortilla pizzas) or corn (a whole grain and typically smaller in size so less calories.) You can also cut tortilla with a cookie cutter into circles and bake them to make mini tacos cups...

The benefits of giving up the tortilla shell are more stomach space and calories for all those yummy taco fillings.

Instead of sour cream use high protein plain Greek Yogurt. Add spices like cumin and chili powder, lime zest or hot sauce to jazz it up.

Use up leftovers. Taco Tuesday is a great way to use up some veggies you have bumping around the fridge or BBQ from the weekend. Anything can be turned into a taco.

Avoid the urge to have a margarita. Drinking alcohol post weight loss surgery is not advised for many reasons but it'll also add 150+ calories for plain margaritas or 300+ calories for fruitier frosty versions to your meal plan.

Hope you enjoy one of these next Taco Tuesday... or tomorrow... because really any day is a good day for tacos!
