I'm a huge, huge fan of taco salads. They are definitely one of my all time favorite lunches. I do still enjoy a good old grilled chicken salad too, but there is just something about a taco salad that makes it seem a little more exciting.
It's like a lunch fiesta and I love to party!
A few years ago I was making taco meat for my salads and I actually flipped the seasoning packet over to look at the ingredients. I was slightly horrified.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG). Soybean oil (inflammatory fats). And enough sodium to instantly raise my blood pressure a few points (slight exaggeration, but not by much).
I had been using these seasoning packets my whole life and never really bothered to think about this. As soon as I saw all the crap that goes into one of these packets, I set out to find a better solution.

One of the single biggest obstacles people always talk to me about in terms of staying consistent with eating healthy is time. They get rushed in the morning and don't have time to make anything healthy. They didn't meal prep enough for the week and get caught having to eat out for lunch and dinner. Or they are just simply drained after a hard day of work and don't want to cook anything.
