{ Turkey and Vegetable Tostadas }

I've started a Walk it Off in 30 Days Challenge, and with it a healthier menu.  I was never one to completely diet because I love food, so I have to find ways to make what I eat healthier with the addition of fruit and vegetables to my day.

When you menu plan, it makes it that much easier to include those healthy items.  I am basically still cooking all of our usual foods, just adding either salad or vegetables with each meal, and doing lots of fruit smoothies as breakfast and snacks.

The recipe I'm sharing today is a great one, it's low calorie and delicious, plus, you have Zucchini in there which is a good way to get the kids to eat their vegetables.
