Tasty Taco Tuesday Salad

Tasty Taco Tuesday Salad

Keeping recipes easy and fast is essential to achieving the goal of eating healthy every single day. One of the great things about Tacos is that they can go on a bed of fresh greens with lots of scrumptious veggies or wrapped up in corn tortillas that pack a punch of fiber, whole grains and just happen to be gluten-free as well. This super simple meal can be ready and on your table in 20 minutes or less.

The bonus is the number of vitamins (A, B C, K) plus: Folate, anti-inflammatory properties, boost of the immune system, lower blood pressure, beta carotene, antioxidants, calcium, fiber, and potassium.
