Tacos

Tacos are one of my kids' favorite dishes. I guess it's the combination of ingredients and flavors that work so well for them. Spicy, complex and just good! Healthy and guilt free, loaded with veggies and protein. The crunchiness from the tacos, and the nuttiness from the beans make for a delicious, satisfying, and gluten free meal.

I find that when I eliminate gluten from my diet, I feel lighter, and much more in balance. Try it out for yourself.
