I like tacos but always suspect they probably have trans-fats. Could well be wrong (and would like to be!)

Are you talking about the shells? I'm sure they could be made without.

Yes, shells. But I was thinking about the bought ones. You are quite right...I am sure they could be made without. Have just never thought of making them.

Make your tacos in baked potato skins instead of taco shells.

Then they would be stuffed potato skins, no?

For me the perfect meal would be Beef Barley Stew with root veggies galore, tomatoes, celery, kale or escarole. Protein, veggies, and grain. For a drink, a tall cold glass of milk. Some dark bread such as whole grain oat, wheat or rye, butter.

Still sounds good to me!

You could also go with a big crunchy iceberg lettuce leaf, sort of an inside out taco!

I went to Winthrop today. They served chicken salad on dark wheat bread. I asked them not to cut my sandwich. I took out the lettuce leaf, put the chicken salad on it and then rolled it up for a wrap. Delicious! And it saved the calories from the bread. My new sandwich minus the bread.

+1 I often use lettuce as the bread (or I use a rice spring roll wrapper) since I've cut bread from my diet.

There is more to this than meets the eye, for example, a healthy meal is different for a sedentary office worker than one for someone who does heavy manual work.
