It was bound to happen, I'm just sorry I didn't think of this idea first: a "taco truck" that sells healthy, organic food. "Sacrilege!" you're probably saying but then when you think about it some more you have to admit it is a pretty good idea, especially in health-conscious L.A.

But those expecting taco truck prices may be a little turned off by the Green Truck's Whole Food-esque prices. The "Create Your Own" salad, wrap or pita combo special with organic soda and "a goodie" will set you back $14.95. Yes, for lunch from a truck! But then again, it all sounds so yum. Mmm, Ahi Poke tacos -- fresh ahi tuna in a citrus and cilantro marinade with cabbage, green onions and pineapple salsa ($11) -- and mandarin-ahi tuna salad. If you want something slightly cheaper, there's the $6 grilled cheese sandwich or $5 soups and an array of snacks like Clif Bars and Kettle Chips.
