Dinner day 8

No photos on this one sorry...

I am not a beef eater but I love tacos! So my answer is ground turkey instead of beef. You have to tweek it a bit since the turkey is much leaner. I like to add a bit of tomato paste and cook the turkey in a bit of oil. I add the paste for texture as well as flavor. Then I add in the envelope of taco seasoning. I know I should make up my own mix but there are so many good ones out there already. I don't always like to reinvent the wheel, if I don't have to.

When reviewing taco seasoning mixes I look for msg and tbhq. I don't want either of these things in my body. Also the other deal breaker is high fructose corn syrup. I love my sugars don't get me wrong but I avoid that stuff like the plague!

When searching for taco shells, I really love the crunchy ones, I do look for nongmo, no lard, no tbhq, and usually organic or blue corn. White corn is non gmo so I get that kind of tortilla chips too!
I use romaine lettuce and shredded cheese. Usually I have fresh tomatoes and an avocado to chop on top, not this time. But this was still a tasty meal because we had lots of chips and salsa and from Trader Joes I purchased frozen chili and cheese tamales. Wow what a treat they were tasty and easy to prepare. Yum! I highly recommend these!

  1. My grandson is on the GAPS diet so he can't eat a lot of things. We've been making lettuce wrap tacos with grass fed beef browned and then add organic fire roasted tomatoes, organic navy beans, chopped organic onion and garlic, and various spices such as chili powder and smoked chipotle. He can't have any grains so we make "cauliflower rice" by pulsing raw cauliflower in a food processor for just a few seconds until it has the consistency of rice. Steam it in a wire basket over salted chicken broth. Take a large lettuce leaf and add the cauliflower rice and beef and a little cheese and then fold the leaf over burrito style. You could do the same thing with ground turkey. These are excellent and very addicting!
