Prepping Not Starving: Tacos!!

Oh man.. who doesn’t love TACO’S!
I am 12 weeks out from my show and I am nailing my IIFYM prep. This one has been the most fun yet.  Taco prep is going to be my new thing!

Look what I found! LaTiara Low Carb Taco Shells. I got these at my local Schnucks store in the Taco section.They are also available on Amazon and other Low carb sites. Check Google!

Each taco shell has just 4g carbs where as other shells or tortillas are around 18g carbs each.

La Tiara registers a B on MyNetDiary’s food score so that works for me.
It’s a small taco shell but it’s so good.

The macros for two tacos are
2. oz grilled tilapia
25 g light sour cream
20g fat free cheese
2 table spoon of salsa
2 shell

Total for two tacos
P: 26
C: 13
F: 9
fiber 1
Calories  236
That’s just 118 calories per taco!

Bro prep swaps: If by chance your coach has you on the “no fat ever” bro plan, you could drop down to fat free greek yogurt and only take 4g fat for the whole recipe.

I bought 72 taco shells on my last trip to the store!
Everything in my recipe has an A or B rating and would be considered “healthy”!!

What about doing Shrimp tacos? Yesss! I mixed shrimp with light sour cream, avocado and
filled the shell! mmmmm..

Try grilling Corn on the Cob if you have the carbs!

You could also use those taco shells for some nachos if you do it right!
Pro-tip: create your recipe and load it into your tracker early in the day. Just eat around the recipe so you hit all your macros/fiber/veggies/fruit requirements.

I wish you well on your competition training!
