Happy #tacotuesday! Well, you could also be celebrating #MeatlessMonday or any other alliteration day of the week, but who cares because tacos are good 24/7/365.
In January, I did my first round of FASTer Way to Fat Loss and it’s now a lifestyle that I’ve been maintaining, for the most part. The intermittent fasting is easy to stay consistent with since I’ve never been a big breakfast person anyways. Traveling during the Summer makes the tracking macros and carb cycling aspect a little tricker, but it is doable with the help of a coach. I love the structure yet wiggle room this program gives. You never know what each day is going to throw at you but it’s nice knowing what my food and workout goals are!
Read more about how this program is structured and my before and after pictures here. Join me on August 19th as we start the newest round of FASTer Way with Deanna. You’ll get one-on-one coaching for 8 weeks, specific meal plans, workouts, and everything you need to be successful no matter what your goals are. Register now before spots fill up!
FASTer Way to Fat Loss Low Carb Days
For low carb days the goal is to stay under 50 grams of net carbs.
The best way to fill up and keep carbs low is with low carb vegetables and fiber-rich foods. Below I’m telling you how to make the easiest and most delicious low carb vegetarian tacos.
There are lots of great #lowcarb wrap options at the grocery store. Many I’ve found have 4 net carbs per wrap!! I will eat two tacos.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On your low carb days, it’s important to note that not all vegetables are low in carbohydrates. Tomatoes, peppers and onions can add up quickly so in these veggie tacos we’re loading up on zucchini, yellow squash, avocado and cojita cheese (radish optional)⠀⠀⠀⠀
Add zucchini and squash with 2 TBSP olive oil to hot pan. Sauté for a few minutes, add salt and pepper, and then add 1 package of taco seasoning and cook until done.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Grab my guac recipe here but omit the tomato. Add thinly sliced radish and crumbled cojita cheese on top. Serve and enjoy!
[tip] Cut veggies lengthwise so that they stack well inside the taco. Also helps to prevent all ingredients from sliding out the back.
