Picky Eater Challenge: DAY TEN

Fish wins for turning up more noses than any other food.  Skipping fish can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.  The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times a week.   There are so many nutritional benefits, it pays to fight through a fish aversion at the dinner table. Take the challenge and try fish as a healthy addition to taco night!

For today’s challenge…

FIsh Tacos with Limeade
In my kitchen, tacos are like pasta. Flexible. This recipe is just one of a hundred different ways you can fix them. Most families enjoy the ease and simplicity of a good taco night. Buy a thick piece of fish and cut it into uniform pieces that will cook evenly, without dry- ing out. You can use the DIY Corn Tortillas on pages 105–6 or store-bought tortillas.
