    How does this post not have comments?!?? Especially when it’s about tacos!!! Tacos are my favorite thing to munch and when they are healthy that’s even better! 🌮💪🏻 I love skipping the tortilla for the lettuce wrap. Btw, have you discovered these amazing low carb tortillas they sell at Publix? They are only 50 calories too!
