When In Doubt, Put It In A Bowl

One of my favorite things about low carb eating is that I constantly discover new ways to enjoy my favorite foods. I’m from Southern California – Orange County specifically, but my entire extended family is still in San Diego where my dad grew up, and I’m really a San Diegan at heart. Tacos are religion. In my family, it’s not abnormal to just eat tacos every single day of the week. Taco Tuesday is for amateurs.

But what’s a taco-loving girl to do without her taco shells?

Making taco shells out of cheese is always a good idea – and I do that frequently – but it’s sorta time consuming, and we can talk about that in the future. But… enter the bowl!

 

not a filter but it is a pretty dreamy meal so i don’t blame the camera for the hazy view!

 

Yup, just dump all your taco fixins in the bowl and enjoy. You can call it a burrito bowl if you want, but taco in a bowl makes me feel more at home. I added a little extra lettuce mix because we have really large bowls and it looked kinda sad before hand, also because I actually just love eating crunchy greens. The neat thing about this “recipe” is that you can make it whatever you want. I used ground beef, but you can try ground turkey or chicken, shredded chicken, chicken chunks, carnitas, etc. I also have some guac (also a staple in California), sour cream, cheddar and TABASCO. Y’all know how I feel about Tabasco sauce – it’s life!

Truth be told, I ate this for lunch a few days ago. Since that day I’ve been slammed with homework and haven’t had a chance to get here to post my meals. I was so busy I didn’t even eat dinner that night, not that I was terribly hungry anyway. I just had a light snack while I slaved away at my computer. This semester cannot end soon enough!
