Taco Tuesday

I like to make the individual days of the week festive. Crime show Wednesday (that’s when all the best ones are on)…Date Night Thursday…lay-on-the-couch-all-day Sunday…and of course, Taco Tuesday. Somehow it makes the week seem extra exciting. You know…naming the days. Like a third grader. I think I’m going to start implementing Champagne Fridays. It has a nice ring to it…don’t you think?

Tonight is Taco Tuesday…and I get far too excited for this fiesta of a night. I may or may not whip out the sombrero. And since I love you all so much…I thought I would share another healthy swap with you. So your fiesta can not only be delicious…but nutritious. 🙂


Turkey Taco Bowls, Taco Tuesday

Turkey Taco Bowls

1 package Ground Turkey

1 package Taco Seasoning

1 bag shredded lettuce (or you can buy a head of lettuce and shred it yourself.  I am not that ambitious.)

1 tomato

1 block sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

0% fat plain Greek Yogurt

Salsa (pick your favorite.  I like Herdez Medium Salsa)


1. Brown meat in a skillet.

2. Follow directions on the Taco Seasoning and season meat accordingly.

3. In a separate bowl, mix equal parts Greek Yogurt and salsa.  I usually use about a 1/2 cup of each.  This is going to be the “sour cream” in your taco bowl.

4. Dice tomato.
