MEAL PREP: Turkey Tacos

 

Right now is a really amazing time to be low carb, gluten, and grain free.  There are numerous companies that make alternate versions of your favorite carbs, and these days you won’t lose all of your friends for replacing rice, mashed potatoes, and pizza crust with cauliflower (only most of your friends).  I’m not big on prepackaged foods, but there’s a brand, Siete, that makes tortillas out of almond flour.  I used these Siete wraps for meal prep this week to make tacos.  One drawback of Paleo is that you really never get to eat with your hands, and while a taco salad is delicious and good for you, it’s still a salad.  I love biting into a taco and having its contents spill out all over me as much as the next guy, and thanks to Siete and companies like them, now I can!

 

 Taco Ingredients

 

Ingredients:

2 pounds lean ground turkey

2 red bell peppers

1 medium onion

Spinach

Guacamole

Siete almond flour wraps

Taco seasoning (recipe to follow.  If you want to use premade taco season, look at the ingredients.  A lot of companies (looking at you McCormick and Old El Paso) sneak vegetable oil, soy, and corn or potato starch into their spice mixes.  A taco seasoning shouldn’t have any of that stuff) 

 

Taco Seasoning

2 Tbsp Chili powder

1/2 Tsp garlic powder

1/2 Tsp onion powder

1/2 Tsp crushed red pepper

1/2 Tsp oregano

1 Tsp paprika

3 Tsp cumin

1 Tsp salt

1 Tsp pepper

 

1) Dice red peppers and onions, saute over medium high heat until tender

2) Add turkey over veggies and saute until just browned

3) Sprinkle spice mix over meat and veggies

4) Pour about 3/4 of a cup  of water over entire mixture to help distribute spices.  Mix it all up and let the water cook off

5) If using Siete wraps, you should nuke them in the microwave for around 15 seconds, this will soften them up and stop them from cracking on you

6) Put about 1/3 cup of taco meat onto wrap, garnish with spinach, 1 tablespoon of guacamole, and hot sauce

Barbara Walters hates exercise but loves the InForm Workout
I am committed to this workout regimen for the rest of my life. When you learn about the reasoning behind this workout regimen, you will realize how much sense it makes. It’s so easy to get pumped up for a 20-25 minute workout and to use maximum effort. I used to blow off the gym all the time as I didn’t look forward to a 90 minute workout 3-4 days a week. It’s the best workout anyone could possibly imagine. After most workouts, I literally struggle to walk down the stairs, or raise my arms, I am so physically exhausted. I am in the best shape I’ve been since graduating college.
