This is my favorite lunch because it’s sooo easy!
It started out a long time ago as leftovers from when we made tacos one night. Back then I’d load it with cheese and crumbled tortilla chips but it can easily be modified to make a healthier GF version.
Usually on Sundays, I’ll make a pound of ground turkey and season it with my homemade GF taco seasoning (which is all the seasonings that make up regular taco seasoning, but without the gluten; why there’s gluten in taco seasoning beats me). I cook that up and package it in Tupperware to use throughout the week.
Grab some lettuce and add your favorite toppings. My favorite combo is ground turkey, avocado, black beans, tomato, fresh green peppers, a little bit of shredded cheese and a dollop of plain greek yogurt (which is quite similar to sour cream but with extra protein). The avocado and greek yogurt acts as the binder instead of dressing. That’s it! How easy is that?! Here’s a photo of a version I made last week. I had lettuce, leftover beef taco meat and avocado but that was it so I got the rest from my cafe at work. They probably thought I was a weirdo walking through the salad line just getting cherry tomatoes, green peppers and some shredded cheese, but oh well! I was disappointed the salad bar didn’t have any beans that day, but it still tasted good. Course in my opinion, anything with avocado tastes good! Give it a shot and enjoy!
