It’s Taco Time! 7 Gut Healthy Taco Recipes

Whether you celebrate Taco Tuesday, Taco Thursday, or Taco Any-Day, we are here for you with some of our favorite healthy taco recipes to keep your gut thriving. Our taco recipes are a great source of protein and probiotics thanks to Lifeway Kefir and Lifeway Farmer Cheese, both of which are complete sources of protein and live probiotics.

The recipes below also contain fiber, which acts as a natural prebiotic that serves as “food” for the good bacteria in your gut and in Lifeway Kefir and Lifeway Farmer Cheese. Together, prebiotics and probiotics form a synbiotic relationship that is pure gold for a healthy gut. So if you’re ready to mix things up in a healthier way, check out our versatile taco recipes all unique in their own right. It’s time to kick the boring iceberg lettuce out of the way and give these fresher options a try!

These tacos have a sensational flavor and texture thanks to the kefir marinade, but then, we add the ‘cherry on top’ if you will, by using Lifeway Farmer Cheese as a protein-packed condiment with the benefits of billions of live bacteria to aid in digestion and absorption of nutrients.

7. Spicy Vegetarian Taco Burger

Spicy Taco Burger


This Spicy Vegetarian Taco Burger might just be our favorite yet, or at least a top contender! But look closely… it’s not made with red meat or a regular bun! This flavor-stacked burger is made of heart-healthy walnut meat instead of red meat and a bell pepper bun, which we think is the best bun out there. Crunchy, juicy, and savory, bell peppers are also packed with vitamin C, an antioxidant that keeps your skin healthy and supple while also supporting the immune system. Lifeway Farmer Cheese turns into a magical spread that is just delicious piled onto a burger. It’s zesty, flavorful, and will totally satisfy while keeping your gut happy to thanks to the live probiotics. Vegetarian-friendly, low-carb, and gluten-free, this recipe is for nearly everyone!
