Low Calorie Cooking Tips: To keep these shrimp tacos healthy and low calorie, we use Olive Oil spray and homemade Taco seasoning.

The olive oil spray limits the amount of oil you need, therefore saving you 100’s of calories and lots of fat. And the homemade taco seasoning helps you avoid preservatives and chemical thickeners, both which harm weight loss and weight maintenance efforts.

For weight loss, the best shrimp tortillas are corn tortillas. They are lower in calories and gluten-free too!
