{Day 2} of Pre-Challenge and a {Recipe}

Hi Everyone!

Dinner last night consisted of a concoction I came up with what I had on hand and I was surprised that even the husband liked it. It's a great meal that you can make for dinner and eat on leftovers for lunch the rest of the week. It could also be doubled and frozen, I suppose. Haven't tried that out yet, though.

Turkey & Quinoa Taco Salad

  • 1lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 14.5 oz pinto beans (rinsed and drained). You could do black beans, too. 
  • 1 jar of salsa (your preference on kind and amount)
  • 1 packet Taco Bell Taco Seasoning (the best, in my opinion)
  • Brown Rice and Quinoa (I used this. AMAZING. And perfect for a busy night when you don't have 30-45 min to cook the rice or, you could just do one or the other. Up to you!)
How to:
Saute your turkey until thoroughly cooked in a large saute pan. You're going to be adding to this so make sure there's plenty of room for more. 
Add your taco seasoning and cook according to package.
Rinse and drain your beans and throw them in. 
Add your brown rice and quinoa.
Add salsa and voila. Done!

I served mine over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and topped with 1/2 of a diced avocado and sriracha (of course), but you could eat it plain or with organic corn chips, gluten-free crackers, the possibilities are endless :)

No workout today - unless you count the Dollar Section at Target. I gave that a real workout today. 

And here's where you can check up on what I've eaten today. 

Finished up a couple projects so, I'll be sharing those once I get the photos taken!

What did you guys have for dinner last night? Any recipes to share?


  1. Um yum. Totally saving this. I had a boring tuna, red bean, avacado salad. Still recovery from the weekend haus out.

    1. Do you think we were seƱoritas in a previous life? The answer is yes. I could bathe in guacamole and rinse off in margaritas. Youre welcome for that visual.
