These taco bowls are packed full of flavor without all the carbs from traditional tortillas or taco shells. Start by prepping your favorite ingredients like seasoned ground beef or chicken breast cooked in taco seasoning mix, grated cheese, lettuce leaves, tomatoes, avocado slices or guacamole (for added fat), sour cream (optional), jalapeños (optional), etc... Place all ingredients into separate bowls so everyone can build their own bowl however they like it!
Shrimp Scampi Zoodles
Zoodles are spiralized vegetables that make delicious low-carb substitutes for pasta dishes like shrimp scampi which usually calls for spaghetti noodles made from white flour.

Serve hot topped with more Parmesan cheese if desired!
