Turkey Taco Salad Meal Prep

A much HEALTHIER take on Taco Tuesdays, except you are meal prepped for the entire week! Less calories and cheaper too!

If you’re a fan of tacos (and why wouldn’t you be?), you’re in for a real treat here.

Because we have a turkey taco salad to-go kit here.

It’s a healthier take on taco Tuesdays.

Except you’re prepped and set for skinny Taco Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

What’s so great about this meal prep is that your greens and premium toppings are separated into their own little containers.

So we have no sogginess, no mush, no nothing.

Just a fresh taco salad literally ready at your fingertips!

And there’s no dressing needed here either.

Between the shredded Mexican blend cheese, pico de gallo, Greek yogurt, and lime juice, you have plenty of goods here.

If, however, you are feeling a little bit on the wild side, throw on some guacamole or avocado slices right before serving.

Yum! Prepping these tonight!

Looks Great! Where can we find the nutritional information for this recipe for those who are counting calories?

Nutritional facts are coming asap. Thank you for your patience!

I was hoping a homemade version of the taco seasoning would be provided.
We are trying to limit our sodium intake.

If you Google for reduced or sodium free taco seasoning, a plethora of recipes are available. There are quite a few packets in my local grocery store that are also reduced/low/no sodium. No reason to provide a recipe when it is readily available.

Look on pinterest . Several good recipes there that I have used

Nutrition Facts , please. I’d like to calculate the Weight Watcher Smart Points. THanks!

Nutritional information is provided only for select and new recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, I recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”) to obtain such information. Hope that helps!

I did the recipe builder on WW using sour cream and only 1 lb of turkey for 5 servings instead of 6. It came out to 8 points/salad, 40 points for the whole thing.

Thanks Kelly for doing the We points. Big help for me.

Although i love your recipes i feel sad seeing all that plastic going into a mealprep (esp bc its the type you are unlikely to reuse). You could just use reusable dressing containers (i think tupperware has some?) Anf the salad if you add it in the morning should be fine or put in seperate (reusable) container. If you consider how often we eat lunch/dinner (daily lol) its worth to sacrifice maybe a TINY bit of convenience for mother nature. And if someone replies i can just do it like that myself, its not forbidden: yes i can, thanks, but its always lovely if influential bloggers set the best possible example. Dont take my reply the wrong way bc in general i love what you do and hope you keep up the good work!

Hi Michele – thank you for your feedback. These meal prep containers are actually reusable and are dishwasher safe! 🙂

I am pretty sure she was talking about the plastic bag.

I reuse my plastic bags. I bring them home from work, rinse them out, hang them to dry with clothes pins in the kitchen, and re-use them for lunches.

Made these for this week! I added 1 bag of steamfresh brown rice to the turkey meat, and a few green olives. Hubby will take his with a snack-size fritos bag too. 🙂 YUM!

Hi Chungah! LOOOOVE the meal prep ideas- please keep them coming! Quick question- are you able to put the lids of your meal prep containers on securely WITH those 2 oz condiment cups? Mine wouldn’t- but maybe I bought the wrong kind?

Maybe! They should close completely.

Where can you purchase the meal prep containers?
