Low Carb TacosHello! If your husband is a Worldcup Fan and he wants to watch all the worldcup games ? Welcome on the blog ! I know what you are living right now !

As we live in New Zealand all the game are broadcast in the morning which makes me though that I will not have to watch football so much. But unfortunately my worldcup fan want to watch all the French game. And obviously football is associated with finger food which is not always the healthiest one. But my goal during this worldcup is to develop healthy finger food recipe. So last time I shared with you my way to turn out a burger into a healthy low carb and gluten free dish by using sweet potatoes to create the burger buns. Recipe here Low Carb Burger.

Today I will share another options of healthy finger food to enjoy while watching the football worldcup. A Low Carb Tacos. I simply used lettuce to wraps the minced beef instead of commercial wraps. We add some sour cream and fresh coriander on the top. I cooked the minced beef with a bit of red wine – I told you he is supporting France so it as to be a bit Frenchy no? – carrots, red onions and kidney beans.
