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!
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!
What I Ate All Day
2 ham and cheese egg cups
Beef jerky (Field Trip brand is the best!)
