Michele's Taco Salad

Michele is obessed with Mexican food and loves to put a healthy twist on this basic, but super tasty taco salad.

Your protein:
1 lb. "Just like ground" (1/3 cup is 10g protien. Could also use ground turkey)
Big can kidney beans
small can chick peas
1 jar salsa or small can tomatoes

Heat it all up together and put aside.

Salad dressing:
greek yogurt 1/2 cup
1/2 cup salsa
1 tsp low sodium taco seasoning

Mix it all up and put back in fridge until you need it.

1 cup cooked Quinoa with 1tsp taco seasoning (low sodium, same stuff)
Romaine Wedges
raw veggies or cooked stirfry fajita style
roasted garlic

Stack it all...romaine wedges, then protien mix, then quinoa, then veggies and top it off with your salad dressing and maybe a sliced avocado. Yummmmm..
