Thanks Steve, I was going to do this but got busy. Would you like me and others to just post the recipes in here or start threads and you or I can link them?

Either way. I wanted to give you some extra attention for your hard work.

Whatever is easiest for you.

Protein Pancakes
 
Protein Pancakes

1/4 C. Egg Whites
1 Scoop Protein Powder

1. Mix it up good.
2. Make like pancakes.

I like to use PB or almond butter on them. They are pretty good plain too. If you use unflavored protein powder you can use these like tortillas too.

-You can mix the cheese in and microwave the tuna mix, then spread on lettuce, if you want the cheese melted.

For anyone trying to get away from the added trace sugars and/or corn starch in the taco seasoning, swap in salsa. You will have to check the label of course to make sure your salsa doesn't have additives.

I also recommend diced green chiles for flavor, and of course, onion.

For those that don't mind the effort, you can make your own Paleo mayo:

Ingredients

# 2 egg yolks
# 1 tsp mustard (this is optional)
# 3 tsp lemon juice
# 1/2 cup olive oil
# 1/2 cup coconut oil

Quote:

Paleo Mayonnaise

# Put the yolks in a bowl (blender, food processor) with the mustard, if using and 1 tsp lemon juice and mix those ingredients together;
# Start whisking vigorously (blender or food processor on low) while dripping the oil very slowly, even drop by drop in the beginning. You’re creating an emulsion and if you put too much oil at once, it will separate and will be very hard to save. Whisk non-stop and use a towel under the bowl to help stabilize it;
# As you add more oil, the emulsion will form and the mayonnaise will start to thicken and you can pour the oil faster at this point;
# When all the oil is incorporated and the mayonnaise is thick, add the rest of the lemon juice and taste your creation. You can season to taste with salt and pepper;

We will make tacos this way sometimes. Put a roast, pork, chicken or whatever meat you want in a slow cooker. Shred it up, put in pan add salsa. Done.
