Turkey Tostada

I use a whole wheat flour tortilla for this, but you can certainly use corn tortillas if you prefer the taste. Just note that they are generally a bit higher in carbs. I crisp up the tortilla using cooking spray instead of olive oil so that I do not use up fat blocks unnecessarily.
Turkey Tostada-3 blocks
1 whole wheat carb balance tortilla- (1 block carb) crisp to your liking
2 cups mixed greens- (1/2 block carb)
1/8 cup corn-(1/2 block carb)
1/4 cup black beans- (1 block carb)
3 oz ground turkey taco meat- (2 blocks protein)
1 oz cheddar cheese- (1 block protein/ 3 blocks fat)

i see that almost all the plates have meat in there a way to be a vegetarian and have variety on the zone diet?

You can substitute tofu or soy varieties for any of the meat. However, most of these recipes will contain meat or eggs as the primary source of protein. Being a Crossfitter as well as on the Zone, I would find it hard to get enough protein any other way.

There are sooo many wonderful soy products on the market now. Anything from chicken types, to ground meat types. Give them a try! They can be found in the frozen food section of most supermarkets, or health food stores.
