Let’s face it. We don’t always have the time to cook and slave away in the kitchen to make a wholesome, healthy meal. Some fast food places are finally catching onto this and are offering up some healthier options to help us out. This is where Del Taco comes in. It has become one of my go to places for a quick yet delicious meal.
Del Taco introduced Turkey Tacos earlier this month, making the company the first Mexican fast food chain to offer ground turkey as a protein option. Del Taco’s Turkey Tacos feature lean, seasoned ground turkey that has 33 percent less fat than its seasoned beef option and offers the same craveable flavor. I personally liked the Turkey Tacos more than I like their beef tacos. Each Turkey Taco has only 150 calories. Del Taco is also offering up a Turkey CrunchTada Tostada, an extension of their popular CrunchTada product line.
At the low price of $1.29, the new Turkey Tacos are served in a crunchy corn or warm flour tortilla with freshly grated cheddar cheese, crisp lettuce and pico de gallo, made fresh daily at each Del Taco location.

I had the pleasure to attend the Newport Beach Restaurant Week Launch Party at Back Bay Bistro, hosted by The Newport Beach Restaurant Association and McFarlane Promotions, Inc. In attendance at the launch party were restaurant owners, media, and other fellow bloggers . We enjoyed great drinks , delicious flavored Svedka Voka shots, and scrumptious eats and bites from food sponsors.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a horsey update on the horses, so heres the lowdown on what’s going on with the boys at the barn.
Some very lucky horses: Big & Moby have found horsey heaven at a barn in Los Angeles County, that they very gladly now call home. They are living the life and enjoying every second of it. What do you think? 😉 They look pretty happy if you ask me! They moved barns (only about a mile from the old place) on December 1st, 2013. They have settled into the new place nicely.
Plenty of turn out time with good friends, tons of food to munch on, a very beautiful arena to ride in and learn how to jump in (Go Moby!), and tons of love and pets from everyone around. Moby is a very green baby who is just starting to learn how to jump after his racing career ended on the track. He is super cute to watch though! Look at him go with Sarah on board. =) Be sure to check out Equine Racers, there are some awesome ex-race horses listed there that need homes too.
Big & Moby having some play-time together. They are best buds! Awwwww…
Aren’t Big & Moby just the handsomest guys ever?
Moby being a nosey baby, wanting to know what’s going on. I see you, he says! Pay attention to me! 😉
