Mexican Turkey Taco Salad

Healthy Taco Salad

Turkey Taco Salad with fresh veggies

The importance of organic veggies has been instilled into me since I was a little girl. For information [ that will shock you ] on the difference between non organic and organic, check out this website. After a Monday filled with teaching Pure Barre, I ran by the grocery store to buy some supplies to concoct the perfect organic turkey taco salad with all the right chopped vegetables. I needed protein after teaching three hours of the workout & taking a class. This recipe was quick to make, surprisingly filling & ideal for a post-workout meal!
