I am going on vacation at the end of the month, and while I won't have complete control over all my food (most meals are provided, but not all) I do plan on working out and tracking what I eat, though I am not going to stress over going over my calories. After all, I go on one vacation a year, and I plan on enjoying fried Oreos and gelato among other goodies.
Last year, we went to a really good place for tacos, and I am looking at their menu because I want to go again this year. I was considering their soft corn tortilla (opposed to flour or crispy corn) with seasoned steak, onions, cilantro, and salsa verde, and I will add some avocado if available (which I believe it is). The order comes with 2 tacos with chips and salsa as a side, though I would rather have 3 tacos with no chips. Still. There aren't too many side options, and I rarely eat the chips unless they are served before the meal and not with it.
Aside from the chips and lack of veggies (though I think the tacos come with lettuce), does this sound like a reasonable lunch? I decided to forgo the American style tacos with lettuce and cheese for the ones with cilantro, onions, and salsa (though others are topped with lime juice instead of the salsa).
