Low Carb Taco Salad

Low carb taco Tuesday. How you ask? Omit the taco shells place the middles in a bowl and you have a fantastic taco salad without all the carbs.

I love chili seasoning and chili powder is actually a fairly healthy seasoning, with significant amounts of several beneficial nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C and minerals. Be very careful thought and read your labels as chili powder can be fairly high in sodium. Or even better yet make your own blend.

I used lean ground beef for the family but you can also use ground chicken, turkey or firm cubed tofu for a vegetarian option.

There are 5.6g net carbs, 39.5g protein and 9 Weight Watchers points.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
