This months Recipe ReDux is on a Tuesday, so what better topic that Taco Tuesday!

Taco Tuesday

February 21 is a Tuesday. So show us your healthy, creative take on the taco.
Tacos are something we eat a lot in my house, they are fresh and yummy and everyone loves to make their own combinations of toppings.

They are fantastic if there are family members who have dietary restrictions as it’s easy to include a mixture of both high and low FODMAP toppings on the table for people to choose from.

​Low FODMAP tips:

This recipe is low FODMAP when shared between 4 people.
Salsa usually contains onion and garlic. Both the salsa and wheat taco shells are best for family members who do not require a low FODMAP diet.
