Paleo Street Tacos
Food trucks and farmer’s markets should go hand in hand in my opinion. Fresh local meat and produce in the convenience of a food truck outside the office. However, life doesn’t work that way…yet.
I actually like food truck food. If you find the right ones, they offer a variety of fresh ingredients in their food and it can be easily “Paleoized”.
Thanks to Jennieo and my monthly “meat box” I got a package of Ground Turkey and knew exactly what to do with it. Make it into Tacos.
Not just any tacos but Paleo Street Tacos! Inspired by the real deal. And it’s all about the meat in authentic Mexican Street tacos so I am here to make sure that happens!
These tacos are knee slappin’ good!
I made Paleo tortillas from fellow blogger Stupid Easy Paleo and added my own Taco blend of seasonings. Paleo Street Tacos=Bright purple cabbage, red onion, diced green bell pepper, diced cucumber, pico de gallo, and a creamy avocado dressing to drizzle on top. YUM.
Seriously, go make this now! This is not a request! 😉
And if you are sticking to your Whole30 guidelines, simply omit the Paleo tortillas and sub it with butter lettuce for your tortilla! BOOM.

1 lb Jennieo Ground Turkey or meat of choice
