Clean Eating Taco night!

Taco night is a favorite in my house. Its easy to make as a 21 day fix or clean eating meal too! Our typical taco night, pre-21 day fix, only needed a few minor adjustments to make it work. The key to having a successful 21 Day Fix taco night is measuring. Before "the fix" we would just load up our plates and go back for seconds. A person could eat 3-4 tacos, nachos, and maybe even a piece of quesadilla. Everything was loaded with cheese and sour cream and Margaritas were always a MUST! (I will be posting a few margarita options for Cinco de Mayo so stay tuned!)

1 Green, 1 Yellow, 1 Red and 1 Blue

Here's what we ate:

Clean Tacos

  • 1 lb organic ground turkey (see seasoning recipe below)
  • organic plain greek yogurt
  • Whole grain hard taco shells or 2 corn taco shells 
  • lettuce
  • onion, chopped 
  • black olives 
  • salsa 
  • organic mexican bend cheese or another 21 day fix approved cheese
  • avocado 
  • Frank's hot sauce for some spice

1. Cook ground turkey on stove top in a pan. Once browned, drain and add 3/4 cup of water and desired amount of taco seasoning and mix up.

2. Chop or shred lettuce and onion

3. Make your tacos!!!

21 Day Fix container count:

2 Whole Grain Tortilla Shells = 1 Yellow
Ground Turkey = 1 Red ( I fill my red with turkey and greek yogurt)

Taco seasoning for the meat: 

  • Ingredients

    • Mix all spices together
    • Use desired amount to season your meat
This is a 21 Day Fix free food!

There were plenty of left overs so we can take tacos for lunch the next two days! It's great because it feels like a cheat meal but it's not!
