Build a Better Taco + 25 Taco Recipe Ideas from Registered Dietitians

Did you know October 4th is National Taco Day? Learn to build a better taco and celebrate with making one of these RD approved taco recipes created by Registered Dietitians.
Build a Better Taco + 25 Taco Recipe Ideas from Registered Dietitians via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_Kitchen
To successfully build a better taco you have to start from the bottom and build up. Each layer is important and can be made a little healthier on taco night.
Start with your tortillas. 
The big debate – soft or hard shell. That’s really up to you. Opt to use whole grain tortillas. Not into the shell, no worries! Try making a Veggie Loaded Taco Dip and dunk with a bean-based chip. Another option is to add more fiber and use large leaf lettuce to hold your taco filling.
Choose your filling.
Great creative with healthy fillings. First add some protein. If you choose beef, choose a lean ground beef.
If you pick chicken or turkey, look for ground chicken or turkey breast. This is ensuring that is ground from all white breast meat, making it a leaner choice.
Try seafood! Many varieties of seafood work well with tacos. Seafood is lean option. If you like a firmer texture, try using salmon, shrimp, or scallops. For a flakier texture, use tilapia, haddock, or catfish.
Looking for plant-based proteins? Try beans, lentils, tofu, or tempeh.
Plus, pump up your tacos with plenty of veggies. Think beyond the traditional lettuce, tomato, and avocado. Add roasted squashes, sautéed kale, broccoli slaw or a peach salsa. The possibilities are endless!
Make your own taco seasoning for a lower-sodium option for your taco filling.
Add your toppings.
After you loaded your taco with healthy fillings, top it with some more flavor! Add a fresh salsa, guacamole, and/or Greek yogurt. Plain Greek yogurt can be substituted for sour cream for a leaner choice and a boost of protein.

8 Delicious Shrimp Recipes [Recipe Round-Up]

Don’t know what to make for dinner? Add one of these delicious shrimp dishes to your dinner menu this week!

8 Delicious Shrimp Recipes [Recipe Round-Up] by RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchen

Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it. – Forrest Gump

Exactly what Bubba said in Forrest Gump – shrimp has vast versatility making it a great addition to easily add protein to a meal. Plus, shrimp can cook in about 5 minutes making it a simple fix for weeknight dinners.

Just be careful not to overcook your shrimp. They will get tough and chewy. Their color changes from blue to orange-pink when they’re cooked through, and they’ll be slightly firm.

Need some new shrimp recipe ideas? Now you have eight recipes to choose from!
