SCD Slow Cooked Chicken Taco Salad

This is one of my new favorite recipes and it’s so simple! It takes a while to cook (but not to prepare), so it’s good for a Sunday. I found the recipe in Sheryl Crow’s new cookbook If It Makes You Healthy. Even though the book is not SCD I like that it is geared toward healthy eating. There are a lot of interesting recipes that I look forward to trying or converting to make a SCD recipe (if possible).
