I LOVE Mexican food and tacos are probably the highest on the list! I’m hoping you guys are just as excited about this delicious taco salad bowl as I am because not only is it healthy, it’s packed full of lean protein, fibre and healthy fats too which will keep you full for hours afterwards! I’ve made a few healthy subs in this recipe such as sour cream for natural YoPRO, beef mince for chicken mince and guacamole for plain avocado. Ask me any questions below and if you make it, tag me on Instagram @the_fitness_dietitian

Hint: They are all brilliant in different ways so variety is always best.

The latest research not only shows us that healthy fats are good for us – it also shows us that the heathy fats in nuts are associated with preventing weight gain. So to put it simply, yes nuts are high in fat but the good kind which can help manage our weight! Read on to find out how…
