The BEST Chicken Taco Salad!

I feel like I have had the BEST food today and it just gets better with each meal. My Huevos Mexicana held me over nicely. I ended up having a “pre-pedicure” snack using one of the ingredients of my Secret Bloggie (100 cal Almonds) mixed with 1 Tbsp of TJ’s Berry Blend….LOVED it!

I’d show you my toes, but, The Husband said that I shouldn’t walk on my blog by showing you my feet. My pedicure was awesome – so relaxing. I took my Bikini Bootcamp book along with me to read and I realized something new. There is a QUOTE on each day ~ who knew! So along with the word of the day, I’ll have a quote for you too! LOL.

I have been SO EXCITED for this lunch ALL week ~ Chicken Taco Salad. The best part was that I didn’t have to be wasteful – I used my leftover Mexican Fiesta eats to make up this fantastic salad.

Here are all the components starting with leftover Chicken Fajitas (I may be missing a little protein since I was supposed to have 5-6 oz, but, eh, it was worth it to have this!)

Salsa Mexicana (it only takes like 5 minutes to make this up!)

Photobucket

Some Basic Black Beans

Photobucket

A handful of organic heirloom tomatoes

Photobucket

AVOCADO!!!

All on top of a combination of romaine lettuce, plus two types of cabbage

Sprinkled with sea salt, pepper and 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Absolutely fantastic!!!! I would have LOVED to added fire roasted corn and some of those Nacho Mr. Krispers….but, I stuck to my Bikini Bootcamp eats. This lunch did a fantastic job of keeping me full. I only broke out my afternoon snack because tonight is the other nephew’s baseball game so dinner will be late.

My afternoon snack was perfect since I was really craving something sweet today.

1 container of TJ’s 0% Organic Vanilla Bean Yogurt combined with Trader Joe’s 0% Plain Greek Yogurt to make up a total of 1 cup of Yogurt (supposed to be low fat, but, eh – whose counting!)
Topped with 1 Tbsp TJ’s Berry Blend

All mixed up you get this fantastic vanilla bean thick creamy tasting yogurt with little sweet berry surprises – I LOVED it!
