RECIPE: Pulled Pork Tacos with Low Carb Tortillas and Slaw

Ya'll know I LOVE tacos. LOOOOOVE them. 

They are just so versatile! There are breakfast tacos, lunch tacos, dinner tacos, even dessert tacos! You can get them with just about any protein or veggie. They can be made vegetarian or vegan. You can make them gluten free or dairy free. I mean seriously.... they are the best food EVER. 

So of course I needed to find a way that I can fully enjoy some amazing tacos while being able to stay on pretty much any plan I am doing, and will work for my clients too. Not to mention, one that my family will love because I do not make multiple meals!

So I put together this recipe! 

If you don't need to stay as low carb, you can use other tortillas. If you need to adjust these in any way, you totally can. That's what I love about them!

This is a pork recipe I have been using for YEARS. We LOVE it. And it's fantastic for meal prep day. Make this pork and then you can eat on it all week by having tacos one time, putting it on salad another...

The Struggle is REAL

iifym macros meal prep Sep 07, 2018

Now that I know my calorie and macro ranges, I am already tracking my food in My Fitness Pal to get a sense of where I am currently, in relation to where I will need to be starting next week.

This is a great starting point for anyone working on a new nutrition plan! Always have an accurate understanding of where you currently are, so you can be better prepared for what you will need to adjust.

In my case, I already know exactly how I have been eating, so I don’t  need to take a week of tracking. I was already doing that. Instead, I am using this time to start playing around with my food and get a feel for what I will need to do.

And let me tell you… I’m starting to get even more nervous about next week lol. I have been eating my way for so long, and have gotten so used to it, that I am going to have to completely change my thought process, my standard meals, everything. A whole new world here!

As a reminder, my new goals are:

Calories: 1600

Protein: 135...

RECIPE: Onion Soup

I absolutely LOVE french onion soup. It’s so warm and comforting. It has the most amazing flavor. To be totally honest, I’m especially obsessed with the one from Panera! Theirs is SOOOOO good.

But I went and looked at their ingredients for the soup and found that even though Panera is known for being pretty clean eating, it does contain white flour and white sugar. Granted it is still way better than many other places! But I wanted to make one that did not contain any sugar or flour.

So I did! I made a batch of this over the weekend and portioned it out into containers to have for lunches during the week at work.

I want to preface this by saying I try to avoid gluten and cow dairy, so I did not put any bread or cheese on mine, however you totally could! I will probably have it from time to time with some gluten free bread and maybe some goat cheese, but for now, I just wanted a good low carb soup option!

Plus, did you know that onions are extremely good for you and...
