This low-carb Steak Taco Bowl is an easy meal and a great lunchbox option that can be ready in less than 20 minutes. Even less if you prep the bowl while the steak is searing and resting, or if you use leftover steak from last night's dinner.

It's packed with flavor using simple fresh ingredients: cilantro lime cauliflower rice, juicy steak, avocado, sour cream, homemade tomato salsa, crunchy jalapeños, and radishes. Yum! This recipe can easily be scaled up to make multiple servings as well.

Tip: This easy taco bowl is a great option for those who practice intermittent fasting as just one serving will provide enough protein, fat and electrolytes to keep you full and nourished for longer.
