Taco in a bowl! Whole30 and Paleo Friendly

I know we have all been get home from work (or you have been home working all day) and it is getting close to dinner time...and you have no idea what you are going to throw together..again.  Anyone?

Well I've got you covered with this #whole30 and #paleo friendly ground beef taco bowl recipe! Ready and on the table in under 30 minutes. The recipe only uses two pans - a cookie sheet and a skillet for super easy clean up also - My kind of meal!

Since my daughter and husband don't eat paleo, we just make some quick jasmine or brown rice or serve with tortilla shells. Half the time, my daughter just eats the plain “burger” with veggies and I don't even have to worry about it. 

Easy Meal Planning

By the way, whenever I happen to feel this way (what the heck is for dinner…) I think back to my ideal meal template (modified from the Whole30 / paleo plate) fill it in with what I have, decide on sauces/seasonings and (usually) I am good to go. 

My Ideal Meal Template

I follow the goal plate of 50% non-starchy veggies (broccoli, brussel sprouts, spinach, cauliflower, greens, etc.) 25% protein (chicken, fish, beef, tofu, turkey, etc.) and 25% starchy veggies or fruit (this is also where I would suggest someone sub in a grain if you would like to) and then healthy fats are used as condiments and toppings. It works super well for me and takes the guesswork out of meal planning! Try it out and let me know what you think! Interested in specific meal plans or guidance following this template? Contact me!
