When I sent out my survey last month, asking you what kind of recipes you would like to see more of on Nurture My Gut, many of you requested fast and easy Paleo friendly meals.
I am listening and I am here to provide you with 20 minute or less Paleo recipes that make your life easier, healthier and your palate happier!
Being that it is summer, this fast and Easy Paleo Taco Salad deemed to be a perfect recipe.
This Easy Paleo Taco Salad is very simple to make, all you need to do is heat up a large skillet to medium heat, I use a large cast-iron skillet for even heating. Add avocado oil and saute your onion and yellow bell pepper for 2-3 minutes.
Then, add your ground beef and brown until no longer pink. If you would like to top with Dairy Free Sour Cream, you can make this while your beef is cooking.
Once the meat is cooked through, toss in your chopped tomatoes and add your spices. Season with salt and taste for desired flavor.
Place some butter lettuce leaves on a plate, top with ground beef mixture, some cubed avocado and dairy free sour cream. It’s that easy!
If you want to reserve a little bit of chopped bell pepper and tomato to sprinkle on top, you can do that too and I did in the photo above.
