Prawn & Egg Taco

My son would disagree with the word taco here, but let’s all use our best Keto imagination. This is the next best thing. For anything that needs a crunchy hold, they work perfectly. In fact, lettuce cups are my preference all round. Not only do you get to eat more (less filling and less calories) you also get to pat yourself on the back for not eating one of the most processed foods out there. Yes, you guessed it, corn. Sorry to break your hearts friends but corn is GMO, is a mono crop and a grain. Sorry corn. No love for you today. Lettuce cups we love you.
