Mexican food is frickin’ awesome, because it’s so easy to get a proper balance between fats, carbs and protein that’s still bursting with flavour!

Using fresh herbs can really create a flavourful marinade without the extra calories.

Cilantro is packed full of essential vitamins including A and K which are important for vision, blood clotting and bone formation- all pretty important for fitness enthusiasts!

To top it all off, these healthy chicken tacos also use two different types of spicy peppers to really add a fiery fat-burning punch!
