Healthy Taco SaladMy original taco salad post was the taco salad I've always made. The taco salad I'm talking about today is a healthier version of that...yes, I said healthy!! I'm excited to share. This post also reminds me that I need to update you all on how my
-Ground Beef (92% lean/8% fat)
-Ms. Dash Salt Free All Natural Taco Seasoning
-Rice (I prefer white rice, brown may be a little healthier)
-Low Sodium Black Beans
(which is what I prefer BUT you can also use
Fat Free Refried Beans which is just as good)
-Fat Free Shredded Cheese
-Light Sour Cream
-Medium Chunky Salsa
- Shredded Lettuce
1. Brown the ground beef
2. Cook the beans
2. Cook the beans
3. Put the beef back into the pot and add the taco seasoning
4. Put the ingredients on the plate in the order you choose
(I stack mine in this order: rice, beans, beef, cheese, sour cream, salsa, lettuce)
My boyfriend actually introduced this healthy meal. He saw this Physiques of Greatness video and wanted to try it. I'm open to all sorts of healthy meal ideas, so we tried it. If you prepare your plate the way it's done in that video your macros will look like this: 61g of protein, 7g of fat, 121g of carbs. His plate was pretty huge and I used white rice so my macros look a little different. This has now become one of my go-to meals when I'm having a busy week and need something quick to cook! This video also introduced me to Roasted Garlic Salt which has become my favorite seasoning, for everything!
This meal will fill you up. You can eat it with tortillas; you can turn it into tacos; or you can eat it as-is, like I do! The main thing I want you to take from this post is that you should definitely give it a try...lol. It's kind of my home version of a Chipotle bowl. It's quick, very good AND it's a lot healthier than the other recipe!
Did you think a taco salad could be a healthy meal?
