Turkey Taco Salads

And, i’m back in the game!

Turkey Taco Salads are one of my favorite go-to’s when I want to eat something easy, healthy, delicious (and low-carb!).  They are fast to prepare and the ideal lunch prep or busy weeknight meal.

I’m home from Colorado, and although i’m having serious vacation withdrawals, i’m somewhat happy to be home.  It’s always nice to sleep in your own bed again and get back into a daily routine.  My goals for this month are to eat healthy, workout 4-5 times a week, limit my stress, and maintain a solid work/life balance.  December was a little tough for me i’m not going to lie– work was crazy crazy busy, I had a few too many social obligations, and I was still trying to keep up with my blog on the side.. all of which became a little overwhelming.  Needless to say, I desperately needed the time away to relax, enjoy family time, and just not stress about anything!

Turkey Taco Salads

When i’m having trouble thinking of what I want to meal prep for the week, I pretty much always turn to Taco Salads.  One of my favorite things is using salsa as the dressing- any excuse to sneak salsa into a meal and i’m in. But really, it’s so delicious and also a much healthier alternative to dressing.  I love alllllll the toppings, but feel free to mix it up however you’d like!

Some of my favorite toppings include:

  • Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Black Beans
  • Red Onion
  • Salsa
  • Crushed Tortilla Chips
  • Lime Wedges

If you are prepping these for lunches, divide the lettuce and toppings into 6 Meal Prep Containers, however, make sure to store the turkey meat separately so the lettuce doesn’t get soggy.  All you’ll have to do is quickly heat up the meat before assembling your lunch.

Enjoy!!
