Gluten Free Fish Tacos with Avocado Creama

Day 10!  I’m about halfway through Dr. Junger’s Clean Cleanse. Woo! As Alyssa mentioned on Monday, things are getting way easier. I feel great! And for those who are used to feeling ‘not so great’, it is the best motivation.

One of the goals of our blog is to take recipes that we would normally want to eat and make them clean. It helps us feel like we aren’t missing out. Lou did the Clean cleanse for a whopping 5 days ;)  Within those 5 days he wanted fish tacos (and sandwiches and wings). So here we have clean Gluten Free Fish Tacos topped with an Avocado Crema. These tacos are easy to whip up, flavorful and delicious. Oh, and they are also “Boyfriend Approved” :)

    Did you make the rice tortilla? I’m not at the point in my life where I have time to make tortilla (my favorite) from scratch. Every gluten free one has soy or corn or potato in their tortilla. Even if there is a rice tortilla without the other tree amigos, isn’t it still processes and should not be eaten when doing the Clean cleanse?

      I am definitely not making my own tortillas either haha. I use the brown rice tortillas by Engine 2. You can get them at Whole Foods. There is no soy, corn or potato! I also believe the brown rice tortillas by Trader Joe’s are clean as well!
