1 tsp salt 
1 tsp ground pepper 
1 tsp oregano 
1 tsp thyme 
1 1/2 tsp cumin 
1/2 tsp paprika 
1/4 tsp garlic powder 
1/4 tsp onion powder 
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Ingredients Crust
2 cups of almond flour 
2 eggs - whisked 
1 tbs coconut oil 
1-2 tbs of the taco seasoning (see above)

Ingredients Filling
1 to 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef – browned (grass-fed beef recommended) 
1 small onion diced 
1/2 red pepper diced 
1/2 green pepper diced 
2 tbs taco seasoning (see above) 
1/2 cup tomato sauce
 1 can (14 oz) of diced tomatoes with green chilies – liquid drained 
2 avocados - diced

Instructions

1. First combine ingredients for the taco seasoning in a small bowl - set aside 
2. In a frying pan add 2 tbs of a fat of your choice 
3. Add ground beef and brown, along with the onions and peppers over medium heat until meat is cooked and the veggies tender 
4. Drain fat from pan 
5. Add 2 tbs of the taco seasoning mix

7. Simmer awhile to let flavors combine 
8. Time to make the crust... 
9. In a medium bowl combine almond flour, whisked eggs and coconut oil into a dough (I used a wooden spoon, then my hands) 
10. This will make a 9-inch pie crust, or enough for about 4 ramekins 
11. Grease pie pan or ramekins 
12. Mix dough and form for which ever vessel you will be using for pie 
13. Press into pie pan or ramekins to form a crust 
14. Bake at 350-degrees F unfilled for about 8-10 min 
15. Remove from oven and add the taco filling from the pan 
16. Top with some diced tomatoes 
17. Return to oven and bake at 350-degrees F for another 20 mins 
18. Top with slices of avocado or whatever garnish you would like 
19. Break up the crust from the bottom to combine with taco filling 
20. Eat up!

I am so proud of you for all your hard work. 30 days of paleo is NOT EASY (even with a blib or two). It takes lots of dedication and will-power/motivation that you definitely have! And I completely support the idea of modifying Paleo. It's not for everyone, but it's good to use it as a cleans so that you can start to reintroduce foods and see what you're sensitive to. The idea of clean eating is huge and you obviously see that importance! And definitely add in your advocare. I know you've seen great results with these supplements, so keep on it, girl! So proud of you! You look amazing and I can tell you feel amazing. The progress you've made in the gym thus far is UNBELIEVABLE! Austin and I are both so proud of you. Keep up the hard work. :)
