To a Healthy New Year!

During 2010 I ate out the most I've ever eaten out in my 30 years of life. Not going to lie, I LOVED it. BUT, it's very expensive, and for the most part, not the healthiest choice. There is something magical about creating and preparing your own food; it's meditative, fun and satisfying. You also are in full control of what you're fueling your body with.

I wanted to share one of my favorite dishes. It's super fast, easy, tasty and healthy. It takes 15 minutes total to prep and make this dish.

To make this dish more substantial, I eat this salad with heated tortillas or pita and hummus. My recommendation is Trader Joe's Sun Dried Tomato and Habanero Hand Made tortillas :)

1/2 Green Bell Pepper
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1/2 Red Onion
4 Cloves of garlic
2 Handfulls of Trader Joe's Herb Salad Mix
4 Leaves of Green Leaf Lettuce
3-5 Slices of Turkey
Olive Oil
Apple Cider Vinegar
Braggs Liquid Aminos
Sea Salt

Serves 2

-Peel the garlic and slice the green bell pepper, red bell pepper, turkey and red onion. Wash and tear lettuce leafs.
-Mix the Green Leaf Lettuce and 2 handfulls of Trader Joe's Herb Salad Mix in a large bowl.
-Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, a splash of the liquid aminos, sea salt and pepper on top of salad and mix to taste.

-Put about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and cook the onions and garlic until the onions start to become clear.
-Add the bell peppers.
-Once the peppers start to brown on the edges, add the turkey and season with sea salt and pepper. Cook until the turkey starts to brown on the edges.
-Pour the cooked bell peppers, onions, garlic and turkey on top of salad and mix it all together.

I hope you enjoy!
