A new taco cleanse is taking the country by storm, and it really does help you lose weight!
There always seems to be a cleanse of some sort that everyone is trying, but most of the cleanses don’t involve tacos! The first thing you should know is that the tacos in this cleanse are vegan, which is partly why this actually works.
The idea for the cleanse comes from a cookbook called “The Taco Cleanse: The Tortilla-Based Diet Proven to Change Your Life.” Written a few years ago, the cookbook is still incredibly popular, and even the likes of Jennifer Aniston has bought it!
The taco cleanse offers numerous health benefits such as lower cholesterol and blood pressure. The tortillas are healthy because they are stuffed with vegetables that are good for you and plant-based proteins like legumes.
It wouldn’t be #TacoTuesday without some Spicy Mexican Black Bean Tacos with avocado, cherry tomatoes, lettuce and sautéed red cabbage. I used @missionfoodsanz new Street Tacos soft tortillas which are the perfect size for the whole hungry family. They’re also thick and fluffy, so they hold up to the biggest filling ? Does anyone else overstuff their Tacos like me? ☺ For the spicy beans I just sautéed a drained can of black beans with 2 tsp Mexican chilli powder, salt and pepper and a couple of tablespoons of water until warmed through. So quick and easy! Serve with a squeeze of lime, and you’re set for the night! Yum! So if it’s Mexican, make it Mission! #missionmyway#tacos#ad#mexicanfood#veganrecipes
This taco cleanse even involves drinking what the creators call “the required margarita supplements.” Yes, this cleanse actually includes alcohol!

The book reminds readers that eating isn’t supposed to be torturous.
“We can become so obsessed with cleansing and ‘perfect’ diets that we develop eating disorders or at least spend an unnecessary amount of our lives worrying about filling our diets with righteousness,” Stephanie Bogdanich, one of the book’s authors, told Women’s Health.
