Hey-hey! It’s weight loss day! Hope you’re finding these meal hacks helpful in your own journey to better eating. For more meal ideas click What’s on My Plate or the series graphic at the end of this post.
Tacos are a meal everyone can agree on in this house, but the chips and hard shells and flour burritos are not something I’m willing to add to my daily points. Swapping out spinach and making a salad is an easy hack that helps me stick to my weight loss goals and keep everyone else happy in the process.
Easy Taco Salad
8 points per serving
What I’ll include is a basic recipe, but add as many taco-friendly veggies as you’d like to help bulk up the meal. You could also add beans (which we have before) but remember it will add points to your total meal.
What you need (for one serving):
- Spinach – 0 points
- 1/2 cup cooked brown rice – 3 points
- 3 ounces taco seasoned ground turkey breast – 4 points
I make mine Jessica Seinfeld style with added vegetable purees and McCormick Taco Seasoning.
- 1/4 cup fat free salsa – 0 points
- 2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole – 1 point
How to make it:
Layer ingredients on your plate in the order above. Eat and enjoy!
