Taco Salad

Salads are perfect for summer! They are refreshing, nutrient dense, and full of flavor. They are perfect to take on the go to work, the beach, or to the pool. I always feel energized and ready to take on the day after eating a salad because I know I am fueling my body with nutritious foods that make me feel good and that excite my taste buds.
