Healthy Taco Bowl!


Does anyone else love taco bowls? I do! They are so quick, tasty, easy, and you can make them low-carb if you need to. This recipe is a heck of a lot cheaper in ingredients then what you pay at Chipotle, and I can whip this up in 3-4 minutes.  I usually use either grilled chicken that I cook in bulk or ground turkey breast that I season with taco seasoning. I make this often for lunch or a mid-morning meal.  Here is what I like to put in mine:

-3oz grilled chicken breast, chopped (or ground turkey)
-1 cup raw broccoli (81g), chopped
-2 Tbsp salsa (33g)
-2 Tbsp fat free sour cream (30g)
-1/2 small avocado (45g)
-taco seasoning to taste

Calories: 225
Fat: 9g
Carbs: 12g (5g fiber)
Protein: 26g

-If I need carbs in my meal I add 1/2 c brown rice, which will vary depending on the brand but usually adds about 120-150 calories and 30-35g carbs.

I make this quick meal a lot and it really fills me up! Plus it is full of vitamins, healthy fats, and fiber.

  1. Mexican food is my go-to for healthy and quick make at home meals. Funny, though, people don’t usually equate mexican food with healthy choices, but its so easy! I love my taco bowl made with black beans, sauteed peppers and onions. Sometimes I’ll add chicken or mushrooms, avocado and pico de gallo. If I make a batch on the weekend I can easily portion and heat up throughout the week.
