Shredded Beef Taco Salad is nestled into a bed of shredded green cabbage and then topped with shredded beef, hot sauce, red onions, and topped with a mix of chopped onions and cilantro!  Take or leave the tortilla chips depending on what you like. . . I usually get filled up without the chips but that’s just me.  🙂

If you’re a dressing kinda person, then you’ll adore our Cilantro Ranch Dressing with your Shredded Beef Taco Salad!  I typically prefer to enjoy the flavors of my salad with salsa as the dressing BUT I know there are some people out there that think salads are the perfect excuse to have dressing!!  SOoooo, enjoy it whichever way works for you. 🙂 

Miss Nichole’s Back to School Chipper. . . 
We are back to school and back to routine, at least at my house. I am super excited about getting regular workouts back in at the gym! At least that is the hope, I am sure the school germs will be hitting the house within the next couple of weeks.

Today we are celebrating having more than 20 minutes to workout with an awesome chipper. The trick to chippers is to break it up into small doable sections.

Some of it is body weight exercises and some of it will require weights and a pull up bar.

Push hard! Work hard! And get it done!!!

Much Love and Peace~
