Keto Taco Salad
Keto Taco Salad is really simple. Its the ingredients you would usually put inside a taco, but just as a salad on your plate! Just think, no more mess when the taco crunches and breaks!
Sour cream is your friend in this recipe. It helps to make the ingredients taste fantastic, binding the separate textures of the lettuce and cheese into a mixture of creamy Mexican style salad.
Keto Salad Recipes
This week’s recipes are based around mince (also known as ground beef). Mince is a cheaper alternative to full cuts of meat like steak and loins, but the fat content makes it more appropriate to a ketogenic lifestyle.
Make sure when you purchase ingredients for the Keto Taco Salad from the shops to get the full fat version, and not the lean style. Many of the essential vitamins and minerals come from the fat of the meat. Please note grass fed is much better than normal mince, usually containing 6 times more of the essential amino acids and vitamins.
Grass-fed doesn’t always mean that its hormone free. Beef cattle are given a large amount of hormones to speed up the process from calf to fully grown livestock. Try also to purchase hormone free, organic beef. The extra cost is definitely outweighed by the benefits.
I have attempted to keep the ingredients for Keto Taco Salad fairly similar this week, which reflected nicely in my Sunday meal prep day. It usually takes me around 2 hours to make all 5 meals, and increasing the quantity (for a family) wouldn’t add that much extra time onto that.
So for 2 hours on a Sunday, I have lunches for the whole week, and sometimes even dinners! I’m not a big fan of eating the same meal 5 times a week. The diversity is not only better for your health, but it keeps your taste buds from wandering into sugar-land…
Having the same casserole or bulk food every meal of the day is my form of torture. It’s much cheaper and easier to eat in bulk, but the experience is far greater if diversification becomes routine.
This keto taco salad recipe doesn’t contain as many carbs as a normal taco recipe, which is perfect for the ketogenic diet.
Keep an eye out for the recipes over the coming days. I hope you enjoy them just as much as I enjoyed creating them!
