Mixed Green Ground Turkey Taco Salad

Happy New Year everyone, I’m back!! The first few weeks of the new year have been amazing for me. I’ve been busy opening my very own Yoga Studio with my lovely business partner! It’s been a whirlwind of greatness.

I have found it to be a little challenging to find a nice balance of nutrition and yoga during all of the excitement, but considering yoga and clean eating go hand and hand I’ve been able to (mostly) stick with my routine.

I don’t know if you remember my tasty Stuffed Portobello Mushroom recipe, but I made them a few days ago (with turkey, not pork as in my portobello recipe) and had about 2 cups of the turkey mixture leftover. I love to come up with new ways to use leftovers. I’ve used the turkey mixture in casseroles, as a pizza topping, on spaghetti squash, and this time I used it to make a healthy mixed green taco salad. If you’re looking for something healthy, quick and oh so delicious give it a try! Even if you’re starting with raw turkey (not leftovers) this meal will only take you about 20 minutes to complete!

This salad full of wonderful greens and fresh veggies, and will bring back warm summer memories (which we could all use right about now) while nourishing the body. After all of the holiday eating fresh veggies are very welcome in my bowl.
