    I love taco salad. My wife and I have almost completely phased out ground beef from our diets and use ground turkey for everything we used ground beef for instead. Of course, for taco salad, i typically just use diced chicken cooked in my own brand of taco seasoning.

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! My copy of the book should be coming tomorrow and I’m so excited to delve into everything. Hopefully it teaches us both some new things 🙂

    Definitely would suggest “The Happiness Project” as a great life read and “How to Be Richer, Smarter and Better-Looking Than Your Parents” is more business mixed with humor. A lot like Chelsea Handler! Hope you like them too 🙂

      Thanks so much!! I’ve heard great things about The Happiness Project and I Chelsea Handler-type humor so I’m definitely adding those two books to my wishlist.

    Unfortunately I don’t have any videos/websites/books/advice to help you out…but I sure hope that you feel better soon! My weekend was great as it was my first anniversary 🙂
    Seriously though, this salad is da bomb! <— not sure why I said that, but it just seems fitting. Love a good taco salad, especially a healthy one!
