Easy KETO Turkey Taco Salad

My family has always loved taco salad. Personally, I'm a big fan because it’s super easy to throw together on a crazy-busy-rush-around-weeknight. It's a go-to weeknight meal for me and frequents my menu planning board. My kids love it because it’s just plain good! I consider it a win-win.
Traditional taco salad recipes, however, include a lot of ingredients that aren’t exactly on my nice list. Gone are the days of busting out a bag of chips and cheesy salsa dip to go with a taco salad! Let's be honest, it was barely anything you should call a salad.

But then, a funny thing happened: running taught me things about myself. Slowly, steadily, running became more to me than calories burned. Running was my me time, my therapy, my time to burn off all the nonsense. 

I signed up and ran my first 5k. My only goal was to run the entire thing. I did it! As I crossed that finish line I learned something about myself that I'd never known before. I …
