Instructions
  1. Choose a meat. If you choose turkey or beef, heat pan, add 1 teaspoon of EVOO and brown meat. Season with your favorite herbs and spices. We typically use a dash of lemon juice, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. If you choose chicken, grill, bake or cook in a pan. Season to your desired taste.
  2. Cook or warm beans. We typically follow FfL's "Simply Seasoned Beans" recipe. Finely chop your "crunchy texture" of choice.
  3. On a small - medium plate, place a handful of spinach. Top with meat, beans, diced avocado and your added "crunch." Add salsa, yogurt and any additional toppings you may desire.
  4. Enjoy!
Our Two Favorite Taco Salads:

  2. Browned ground beef seasoned with salt and pepper, spinach, 1/2 sliced avocado, cilantro, chopped raw Brussels sprouts, beans, salsa, a dollop of Greek yogurt and hot sauce.
