Blackened Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage & Avocado Crema

By February 24, 2018 Diabetic Friendly, Gluten-Free, Lunch and Dinner, Sandwiches & Wraps

Ya’ll, these are the best tacos I’ve created yet. While I used salmon, you can use any fish you like. I like salmon mostly because it tastes amazing to me, but also because it’s rich in Omega-3 fats which help to reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation contributes to the development of nearly every chronic disease we see today — heart disease, diabetes, cancer, leaky gut, etc. It’s typically the first step in the development of these diseases. If you can control inflammation you can greatly decrease your risk. And one powerful way you can control inflammation is to eat anti-inflammatory foods like:

Fruits, especially blueberries, apples (skins on!) and citrus

Vegetables, especially dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, chard, escarole, etc.

Nuts and seeds like ground flax seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts

And other cold water fatty fish like Atlantic mackerel, halibut, sardines, and tuna.

Don’t think you can fit tacos into a healthy lifestyle?

Oh but you can! Have two tacos along with a side salad or a side of cooked veggies. The fiber in those veggies will fill you up and keep you feeling satisfied. Also, by adding more nutritious components to your tacos you can make them healthier:

I attribute a large part of the deliciousness of these tacos to the tortillas. They are local handmade corn tortillas made by Mitla Torterilla and they are honestly WAY better tasting than the stuff you buy at the grocery store. Plus, they only use 4 ingredients so if you have any existing gut issues and you’re looking to stay away from all those preservatives and additives, these are your savior.
