Found: A Delicious (and Nutritious) Taco Recipe for Tonight's Dinner


Kelly LeVeque

Every other week, Los Angeles–based certified holistic nutritionist, wellness expert, and health coach Kelly LeVeque of Be Well by Kelly brings us a new installment in her #FabFourin15 series. Quick and easy #FabFourin15 meals turn off hunger hormones, squelch inflammation, and provide the body with the perfect complete meal of essential nutrients. The Fab Four are protein to up collagen, muscle tone, and metabolism; fat to benefit hormones, skin, and cellular health; fiber for gut microbiome and detoxification; and greens for phytonutrients.

Taco night usually means a dinner of unlimited chips and guac, corn tortilla shells, and margaritas, all of which heighten cravings and leave you feeling bloated. I like to offer a low-carb, high-protein, and high-fat alternative so that you can eat your tacos until you're satisfied without the guilt or bloat. (Not to mention the hangover from those sneaky margaritas.) This shrimp taco recipe is one of my weeknight favorites.

Choose butter lettuce for your taco shell and don’t be shy about adding more shrimp and avocado. Protein curbs hunger hormones, and fat slows the absorption of food. When combined, both steady your blood sugar and keep you satiated.
