Fast Day Turkey Taco Salad
Taco Salad for fewer than 325 calories? Think that’s as preposterous as we do? Join Susie T. of Fast Days Healing Days to uncover how she creates a hearty Fast Day (FD) Turkey Taco Salad that gives satisfaction and flavor in every bite. Enjoy your Fast Days (FDs)!
Any salad that tastes this good should have a name much cooler than the simple, Fast Day Turkey Taco Salad. In a word, the salad hits all the hot spots and satisfies like a salad twice its caloric content! It packs a wallop of flavor, while fitting perfectly within a Fast Day (FD) calorie budget (FDB or Fast Day Budget).
When you think of salads, you might be tempted to think of pale, anemic, lettuce-filled, limp-on-taste salads that leave you hanging. They promise reward and satiety and by the time you finish chewing you’re like, “Meh. I could eat.”
The problem with salads like I just described is they lack flavor components and the necessary fat to carry those flavors to your palate, then onward to the moon, Alice—or rather—to the brain. It’s like eating a bowl of sawdust, for which you will still experience an insulin response because of the sheer bulk of the sawdust, but without any of the soul-satisfying flavor necessary to extinguish cravings. That’s right, you won’t feel the pleasure or food reward from eating it, because it’s tasteless and blah—and if you’re like us, deprivation, rebellion and temper tantrums will ensue if something isn’t done to mitigate that diet dissatisfaction.
The opposite problem can also be true of salads. We “think” we’re eating healthy—cuz, come on, it’s salad. Right? Not so fast, Superman. Although leafy greens are fantastic for our bodies, containing vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and soluble/insoluble fiber, and although they represent an incredible BFYCB (Bang-for-Your-Calorie-Buck), they’re just a flavor delivery system. It’s all the toppings and add-ons that rest on top of that bed of leafy greens that really contain the flavor. And the calories. It’s not unusual for a fully-loaded salad with dressing to have 700-1200 calories. No, I am not lyin’!
So it’s with great pleasure Fast Days Healing Days brings you a desceptively simple and humble Turkey Taco Salad, filled with flavor, deep-nutrition, and an incredible ROI in terms of BFYCB! Also, if you want to have a little something on the side, like a tortilla, they’re totally Fast Day (FD) do-able with our Psylli Wraps.
