Taco Tuesday... turkey and black bean fix-approved tacos!

So like many others, my family is a big fan of tacos!  And because of this, I have found ways to make one of our favorite meals healthy and 21 day fix/country eat friendly!!

First of all we always start with about 2 lbs of lean ground turkey (I like to have leftovers for lunches..  This way I mix in meal prep with meals I'm already cooking.). So we cook the meat and add taco seasoning.  Yes, I still use packets.  Feel free to make your own, cleaner seasoning mix.  As soon as the meat is browned I add in a can of black beans.  In truth we probably use 1-2 packets of taco seasoning..  It ends up looking like this:

Then the cooking part is done!  Fantastic, huh? ;)

Now for our other healthy substitutions and our color breakdown for the fix...
Whole wheat wrap, I purchase these at Sam's Club and they are only 100 calories each..  The flour version weighs in at around 210 calories!! Yikes!
I always hear mine up in the microwave for a few seconds..  These are the perfect yellow for the fix.

Then I add the meat/bean mixture..  Measured out in my trusty red container.. 
There is actually a LOT of meat in that little container..  YUM!!!

Next I add cheese!!! Because... Cheese! Lol

Then I get in a full green container of veggies..  In this case romaine lettuce and tomatoes. 

After that I like a bit of plain Greek yogurt for flavor..  We all actually prefer it to sour cream!  And yes..  It's a red, but sometimes I don't count that small dallop  ;),  you can do as you wish. Of course!

And finally inwrap all that deliciousness up and dinner is served!! 

Final container count.. 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 red, 1 blue

Enjoy everyone!!
