Chimichurri Tacos

Table of Contents

Hi everyone!

It’s Dr. Michelle Jorgensen from Total Care Dental and Wellness, and I just wanted to share a healthy recipe and a little more about a challenge I am doing on my Living Well with Dr. Michelle Instagram page

I never thought that combining an Indian chimichurri sauce with Mexican tacos would taste so good—but it does!

Being grain-free and full of nutritious ingredients, these tacos both taste delicious and helped me feel great. 

This Chimichurri Tacos recipe comes from my current Instagram challenge to spend 100 days eating food from my garden, You can follow that challenge here.

But why am I sharing this challenge with you?

Well, nutritious and high-quality food is essential to dental health, and here at Total Care Dental and Wellness, we consider it essential to what we do. 

You can learn more about this idea on the post “How to Protect Your Teeth Through Nutrition” here.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and go to my account to let me know how it tasted!
