{Low Carb} Taco Salad

The new year is here and it’s time to get serious about whipping back into shape. For me one of the easiest ways to lose some weight without giving up some delicious foods is to cut out carbohydrates.

This recipe is pretty self-explanatory however one might not know that store-bought taco seasoning has carbohydrates in it. It’s not a ton of carbs but it’s not the carbs we should be eating and why waste a few carbs on seasoning when you can waste them on whipped cream? So I used this taco seasoning recipe in place of good ol’ Lawrys   I didn’t take a picture of the seasoning because, well, who really cares about a picture of seasoning?

Low Carb Taco Seasoning

1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine together. The end!

Taco Salad

1 pound ground turkey
1 1/2 tablespoons Taco seasoning
12 ounces iceberg lettuce, chopped
1/2 cup onion, diced
3 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
6 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 of an avocado (2 tablespoons per serving)

Brown the turkey; drain off the fat. Stir in the taco seasoning mix and 1/4 cup water. Build your salad as you like it. This was pretty delish and only a whopping 7 grams of carbs per serving.
