Grass-Fed Beef Taco Salad

Hello from Stamford! December is a month full of travel, and I still have another four mini trips before the month ends. I also am insanely excited to report that I booked a week-long trip to Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires. I spend a week at there ten years ago, and I am well overdue for a return visit. I honestly think that Canyon Ranch is a slice of heaven on earth, and I would recommend every single person to experience it at some point if at all possible. I am about to call my program coordinator to sign up for lectures, healthy cooking demonstrations, and spa/medical services ranging from Ayurveda and ancient Chinese medicine techniques to detoxifying rituals and hypnotherapy. I am going to have a lot of stories when I return, so you should be excited too! This is a quick recipe tonight - the last of the Florida meals. Mom and I needed a very quick dinner after almost 10 hours of shopping last week. We tag-teamed dinner and were eating in under 15 minutes. This is a perfect dinner for a rushed night that can comfortably serve 3 hungry people!

Ingredients:

  • Spinach
  • 1 lb. grass-fed ground beef
  • 1+ Tbsp. chopped garlic

  3. Add garlic and onion and cook for another 5 minutes
