Coconut oil adds an extra layer of flavor and nutrition to this dish. Attention keto diet fans: side from adding calories and promoting satiety, coconut oil is known for being a medium chain triglyceride, which is absorbed by the body readily easier compared to an animal fat, due to its molecular composition. Similarly, studies suggest coconut oil may aid in the reduction of lipid count in the blood (1), in combination with other health related practices. The avocado also provides heart healthy fats, which provides further satiation and a pleasant mouthfeel.
The lettuce in this recipe also makes for an amazing replacement of taco shells and rice. Romaine lettuce still mimics a sort of container for the food, but provides a much smaller calorie option, with a side benefit of micronutrients. Butter lettuce also works great!
