Lean Habits Taco Salad (under 273 calories)
Tostitos bite size chips
one can kidney beans drained
protein ranch dressing
shredded cheddar cheese (omit for
extra lean ground turkey
(Read below for amounts)
The reason why I don't list the amounts above is because in our family those who are watching calories use a different method than those who do not.
For those who are watching calories place 14 Tostitos baked scoops chips on a plate (120 cal), cover with ¼ cup of red kidney beans (55 calories), 1/4 cup lean 95/5 cooked turkey hamburger (61 calories), lots of romaine lettuce on top, 1/4 cup diced tomatoes (13 calories), up to 1/4 cup protein ranch (25 calories). don't drench it but you can literally use that much. Sprinkle taco seasoning over the top (1/4 package). “(Total 273 cal)
For everyone else mix beans, ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese, ranch, ½ cup of cooked extra lean turkey meat, ¼ cup sunflower seeds, chopped lettuce and again sprinkle taco seasoning on top, 1/4 cup protein ranch. Toss and serve. Add salsa if desired on individual plates. Add a fruit salad – cut strawberries, grapes and bananas.
