    Taco Salad (Minus The Tacos!)?

    Shop Now
    Hello all,

    I'm completely new to primal living so wanted to run this past you guys to check if it is ok.

    Note: I'm only on my second day of the diet, and I am not going "super strict" at the moment. By that I mean, I'm not going organic with my meat, or always grass fed, and I might buy some off the shelf stuff at times (such as the guacamole below). However, I am of course completely avoiding all grains etc and focusing on a low carb/high fat/protein diet.

    So, my recipe (simple, I know!):

    Mixed lettuce
    Fresh tomato
    Red pepper
    Onion
    Ground lean beef/chicken, fried in olive oil
    Sour cream
    Guacamole
    Chedder cheese

    How does this sound to you? I know that dairy is frowned upon by some, but it provides loads of fat. To me this seems low carb/high fat/good dose of protein, with lots of nutrients from the veg.

    Is this a "primal" recipe?

    Sounds like it to me
    I actually had taco salad for breakfast this morning - was craving it so bad lol

    I just had taco seasoned hamburger, lettuce, tomato and a sprinkling of shredded cheese.

    For dinner, I finished up the extra spiced burger with a smashed avocado on top.

    Instead of shredding the lettuce - make taco lettuce cups. Looks Primal to me.

    In May I came across a really yummy Primal/Paleo tortilla chip recipe. They hold up well to guac & salsa. Search this forum for it!

    +1 I have it a couple times a week (sometimes with other meats.)

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    Mmm...that was very tasty!

    I swapped the ground beef for chicken and bacon.

    Taco salad is what's on my dinner menu tonight. Never had it with sour cream and guacamole...I'll have to give that a try next time.
    I'm retraining and strengthening my taste buds, one primal meal at a time.
