Taco Bowl Tuesdays!
Okay, you can make these any day of the week, but it’ll definitely be on your weekly menu. They’re so easy to make and have all the flavors of tacos without the shell. To keep this low carb you can forego the taco shell and just use a bowl or add the ingredients on top of a green salad. Adding fresh cilantro adds a ton of flavor and cilantro is helpful for detoxifying the body of heavy metals and other toxins. I like to add olives and avocado for healthy fat.
If you do want a shell, try an almond flour soft tortilla that you warm in a pan. I like the Siete brand paleo almond flour tortillas. Of course you can always use an organic corn tortilla which is still gluten and dairy free (make sure it’s organic to avoid GMOs).
If you have cilantro left over that you didn’t use, I recommend storing it in a Prepara Herb Saver Pod that will keep your herbs fresh up to 3 weeks! It works great and really does help to make your herbs last longer in the fridge.

- Prep Time10 min
- Cook Time15 min
- Total Time25 min
- Serving Size4
- 1 lb organic, grass fed 85% ground beef
- 1 can sliced black olives
- 2 organic Roma tomatoes
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro
- 2 organic avocado
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder (omit for low Fodmap)
- optional: 1 can black beans (omit for low fodmap and paleo)
Rinse the cilantro, tomato and strain the black olives to remove the juice. Finely chop tomato and cilantro. Set aside.
In a bowl combine the beef, salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder and garlic powder (optional). Stir well then add to saute pan.
Cook beef over medium heat in a saute pan. Add olive oil if desired to prevent sticking. If using black beans, strain the beans and rinse under water then add to the pan to cook with the meat. Should take about 10-12 minutes to cook the beef.
Combine all your taco ingredients in a bowl or on top of a green salad. Beef, black beans (not paleo), avocado, cilantro, roma tomatoes and olives are my favorite.
You can also try adding chopped green onion, roasted sweet potato or vegan cheese.
