Tacos are a staple in my diet because they are
just so darn good…
and they are really just a vehicle for avocados and smoked paprika LOL.
I like to stay away from lectin based food because they can be irritating to my digestive system and can also cause brain fog and make you tired—especially if you’re digestive system has been compromised at all aka leaky gut. I will talk about lectins in a future post but if you want to know more about them and how avoiding them can improve how you feel, I recommend checking out The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven Gundry (@drstevengundry) as a source of more information.
All that said, I have learned how to make super yummy tacos without cheese (because I am dairy free), black beans and tomatoes (because they are high lectin foods) and raw veggies like lettuce and onions (because cooked food tends to be better for compromised digestive systems).
Here’s how to make the tacos
1) Cook up some of your favorite veggies. I like to use sweet potatoes, onions, broccoli and kale. I find it’s easiest to cook up a bunch of veggies in advance during a food prep session. For tips on this check out the Supawesome Cooking System in the Highlights over at @supawesomelife.
2) Throw veggies and your favorite protein into a sauce pan and warm them up. I use everything from grass fed beef sausage to salmon to chimichurri cod (cod recipe in my “food” highlight in my profile).
3) Once warm, remove from heat and add a healthy fat (like olive, coconut, walnut or avocado) and your favorite spices. I like to use Redmond sea salt, dill weed, cumin, smoked paprika and a touch of garlic powder. Season to taste.
4) I assemble the tacos into @therealcoconut tortillas with cilantro, avocado and a squeeze of lemon.
My tacos are my go to for dinner guests and so far I have a 100% “these are amazing” success rate so I hope you enjoy them as much as my friends do!
