Kim Kardashian West’s Taco Recipe Is Delicious and Dairy-Free
Kim Kardashian West has been very candid about wanting to maintain her curvy figure and youthful glow. At age 40, it doesn’t appear that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has aged since she first burst onto the scene in 2007.
In recent years, the businesswoman and mother of four has gotten more candid about her diet and exercise regime. Now, she’s happily sharing some of her favorite recipes on her sister, Kourtney Kardashian’s lifestyle website, Poosh.
The Skims founder’s favorite taco recipe is not only delicious, it’s dairy-free.
Is Kim Kardashian West vegan?
Though Kardashian West does not use the label vegan for herself, she does adhere to a plant-based lifestyle the majority of the time. After being on a low-carb diet for years, the KUWTK star shifted her mindset when her trainer, Melissa Alcantara, urged her to eat, “real food only.”
Since sticking to a plant-based diet, Kardashian West has been open about the wonderful results she’s seen externally and internally. Kardashian West’s diet has also allowed her to minimize flare-ups of her psoriasis. This is an autoimmune disease that commonly results in red patches on the skin.
In addition to her plant-based diet, the KKW Beauty founder is also very regimented when it comes to exercise routines. She works out with Alcantara regularly for 90 minutes at 5:30 a.m.
