Quick, easy, and delicious! I used ground turkey meat, but you could also could ground chicken, pork, or lean beef! I added some extra veggies to the meat to pump up the nutritional value. ENJOY!

Taco Salad


  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb ground meat of your choice
  • Cayenne pepper, cumin, chili powder, cilantro, salt and pepper to taste
  • Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, black olive, and avocado for salad


Warm coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and onion and sauté for a few minutes. Add zucchini, cooking until softened. Add ground meat and cook until browned. While meat is cooking, add seasonings. While meat is cooking, chop romaine lettuce, tomatoes, olives, and avocado for salad.
