New dinner recipe! These have slowly become a staple in my diet and of course I had to share! Since my body is intolerant to gluten, I don't mess with regular flour tortillas anymore. And who doesn't love tacos?! I could eat a different type of taco everyday and be content. Plus, these are much healthier (and I think more filling), but also are extremely easy to make and can be mixed with many different flavors!
Never think that being healthy means having to sacrifice on things that you enjoy - you can definitely still have all the foods you love, you just need to approach them a little differently!
I personally like meat, especially a good juicy steak, so I am in no way vegan or vegetarian. Meat from the many different sources available to us provide many health benefits and vitamins and nutrients that are hard to get elsewhere. The MAIN focus for meat products, however, is to make sure to purchase pasture-raised, grass-fed, free-range and organic to ensure that you aren't loading your body up with all of the chemicals and GMO's fed to many animals that are found on typical conventional farms. Always read your labels!!!
A GREAT resource for making sure your meat is always the most quality, is to start a membership on Butcher Box. Quality, grass-fed meats sent right to your doorstep!
Okay, I'm done rambling. This recipe is amazing! I love all of the flavors, but like any other recipe I post, change or remove some of the ingredients a little bit if you prefer a different flavor.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Serving Size: 4-5 tacos per cabbage head (depending on size)
1 head of organic cabbage (green or purple)
1 lb of organic, grass-fed beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped garlic
1 cup chopped orange bell pepper
spices: turmeric, cumin, cayenne
hot sauce (optional)
In a skillet, start to cook the grass-fed beed on a medium heat with a dash of the coconut oil
About 3-4 minutes in, add in the chopped onion, garlic, pepper and various spices
Continue to mix flavors until beef is fully cooked through
Take the cabbage and slowly peel off the layers to create cabbage tacos or "bowls"
Fill the cabbage taco with the ground beef, to desired amount
Top off with the chopped mango, avocado and cilantro
Some side items we had were a cucumber/tomato salad tossed in some vinaigrette, and then some baked asparagus flavored with some lemon juice!
