Tacos with Purple Slaw

Three reasons to put this Taco Recipe on your menu plan.

  1. Vegetables. Eating more vegetables is one way to increase your nutritional intake while keeping the amount of calories you have to consume lower. Its a win/ win. 
  2. This taco recipe doesn't use a traditional taco shell. Instead it is paired with a crunchy cabbage slaw. No processed or floury foods in this meal.
  3. I have this 1/2 purple cabbage leftover from a meal I made the other night. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it until I remembered this recipe.
