Healthy Taco Salad

I'm currently starting a new diet called the 17 Day Diet. It focuses on getting you off an addiction to carbs like bread, pasta, and sugar, and getting you into eating more lean proteins, veggies, and low-sugar fruits, as well as good dairy such as yogurt with its benefits of probiotics. Today was day one and I'm already happy with how good the recipes can be! Here's a recipe I tried tonight from the book, modified to how I like it (although still 100% within the diet :)) It was delicious! Enjoy!

Healthy Taco Salad 
 1 pound ground turkey
 1 sweet onion
 1 package chicken taco seasoning
 1 red bell pepper 
 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
 Plenty of lettuce
 Sprinkling of parmesan, queso fresca, or cheddar cheese.
 Optional: tortilla chips (skip these if you're on a diet, too!)

Cook turkey, onions, and diced red bell pepper according to taco seasoning directions. Put a generous bed of lettuce on a large plate and top with 1/4 of the meat mixture. Spoon some salsa on top, add a little bit of cheese and enjoy!
