Its Taco Tuesday!  This month Recipe Redux wanted us to do a healthy take on a taco.  These sweet scrumptious shrimp tacos are packed with vitamins, minerals, taste and low in calories.  The shrimp provides essential choline, the veggies and fruit provide significant antioxidants. A great combo of sweet and tangy with a balance of protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates. I  hope you like them as much as my family does!
