Keto Cheesy Mexican Taco Skillet
This cheesy mexican taco skillet has is very similar to a recipe I used to make when I was in college. There are two distinct differences though, I don’t eat this version with a 2lb bag of tortilla chips, nor a 6 pack of Dos Equis. Nowadays I don’t always eat taco skillets, but when I do… it’s keto.
I've talked about this in other posts, but it's very important to me to choose grass-fed pasture-raised beef over their conventionally raised counterparts. Grass-fed beef is higher in omega 3’s, has a better fat profile than standard beef, and a higher concentration of nutrients and antioxidants. By just doing a quick google search you can find that experts don’t necessarily agree that grass-fed is better you. It’s a complicated topic and it is important for me to stick with grass-fed beef, even if scientifically it’s not that much better for you, it’s definitely better for my tastebuds. Plus, I can probably do a google search and find research articles from a nutrition expert, saying the oreo diet is the secret to living to 100.
Several years ago (while on a pescatarian diet) I was feeling extraordinarily sluggish and constantly fatigued. I went to the doctor, had some bloodwork done, and it came back that my iron level was practically non-existent. I had some struggles overcoming the ethical implications of eating meat after that and there were supplements I could have taken to raise my iron level without reincorporating red meat back into my diet. Instead I wanted to focus on a whole food approach to wellness, and eating grass-fed beef was the best source for me.
