This weeks easy, healthy, & Cheap family dinner | Shrimp Tacos

Updated: Jan 9, 2019



Shrimp Tacos. This one is a HUGE hit in my household. Taco Tuesday is a weekly tradition for us and we love to switch between chicken, steak, and ground beef tacos. This one is my personal favorite, not only for flavor, but for a few excellent benefits:

FAST: My babes adore it and it only takes me 20 minutes from start to serve.

EASY: Literally you chop stuff up and throw things together. This meal requires 0 culinary skill.

HEALTHY: Each taco (with avocado and greek yogurt) is approximately 240 calories with 30 grams of protein. Not to mention this meal is a great source of natural fiber, necessary healthy fats, super foods, and heart healthy vegetables. Your body (and waist line) will thank you.

CHEAP: This meal is one of the more expensive ones (shrimp, duh) but it only costed us $21 (even with the shrimp not being on sale and the avocado's being out of season)

Keep in mind, for smaller eaters, you could easily cut this recipe in half. So enjoy The BEST Healthy Shrimp Tacos with cabbage slaw and creamy cilantro lime aioli. Juicy, spicy, and so easy! Cook on the stove or grill. Serves 6-8 comfortably.
