You can make cheese shells which is simply melted cheese hardened into shells (mold while hot), smaller homemade cauliflower crusts (mold while hot), or with various types of lettuce. Romaine lettuce make perfect taco shells! Or you can even make a taco salad (That's my favorite way).

Did you know studies show: that fish, due to the high omega 3 content, decreases the risk of depression, ADHD, Alzheiemer's disease, dementia, and diabetes? Fish is packed with protein, vitamins, and nutrients that can lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke. High Blood Pressure significantly increases the risks of heart, brain, kidney damage, as well as other health problems. Thus, the American Heart Association recommends eating fish twice a week as part of a healthy diet.

Did you know studies show: A high intake of TRANS FATS is associated with all sorts of chronic diseases, including heart disease, obesity, cancer, and diabetes. Trans fat increases your "bad" cholesterol and lowers your "good" cholesterol. Fried fast foods, such as fried chicken, battered fish, hamburgers, french fries and fried noodles, can all hold high levels of trans fat. The major dietary sources of trans fats are cakes, cookies, crackers, animal products, margarine, fried potatoes, potato chips, popcorn and household shortening. Limited consumption of foods made with processed sources of trans fats provides the most effective means of reducing intake of trans fats.
