Paleo Tricks for Your Favorite Foods

I found these Paleo tricks for your favorite foods. What do we love? Sandwiches and tacos!  But what do we avoid? Carbs. (well, sometimes we do.) If you're going Primal, Whole 30, Paleo, or just low carb, then this is the post for you.

Replace Taco Shells With Zucchini

There's actually two ways to use zucchini in place of taco shells for Paleo tacos. First, you can cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Next,  scoop out the center and bake the zucchini until it's soft. Then you can put in your taco filling and go to town.  If you're eating cheese, you can sprinkle it on and toast the zucchini boat until the cheese is all melted.

The second way is to shred the zucchini and create tortillas with them.

Another Quick Paleo Trick

You can also use cauliflower to make a tortilla. And these can also be used as wraps for well, wrap sandwiches.

A Common Paleo Trick

You can get large lettuce leaves and wrap your taco filling inside of that. It's somewhat more like a burrito, but it's still very tasty.

And lettuce wraps are perfect for burgers, pulled meats, and just about any filling you can think of. I know some people don't like that they tear and have the filling spill out. I look for thicker leafed varieties like romaine.

Replace Sandwich Bread with Veggies

Use cucumbers in place of bread for sandwiches. I did a blog post on this earlier. You need to hollow out the center and then use something like cream cheese to hold everything in place.

 

Another great idea is to use avocados in place of mayo, and then eat right out of the avocado. This is perfect for things like tuna salad, shrimp salad, crab salad, and BLT's.
