Cinco De Healtho Chicken Fajitas

     Let's call it what it really is... Cinco De Healtho Chicken Fajita's!  ;)  Why should we health minded peeps suffer when everyone else is having a party!?  Heavens no, that won't do!  All we need is a few healthy changes and we can party along with everyone else "like it's 1999"... (you may need to be older to understand that song reference)!  :0  Anyhoo, let me break it down for you with my 7 lucky suggestions for a happy healthy holiday~
1) Use Chicken over Beef
2) Use low fat Greek Yogurt over Sour Cream
3) Use sliced Avocado over Guacamole
4) Load up on Veggies!  Double your Peppers, Onions and Salsa in your recipe!
5) Opt for low carb tortillas.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE LaTortilla Factory High Fiber Low Carb Traditional Flour Tortillas.  A large shell is only 70 calories, 6g net carbs and 5g protein!
6) Have one Fajita with a large side salad.  For your salad, top your big bowl of salad with 3-4 crushed chips and use Salsa for your dressing.  This is a good way to keep your fingers busy while everyone else might be downing a basket of chips.  You can enjoy your satisfying crunch and fun flavors and not derail your health efforts!
7) Eat slow, set your silverware down between bites, and take a drink of Water!

     Follow these easy breasy steps and you will be the life of the party!!!  Ole'
