clean meal prep

since our big lifestyle change in july we have changed the way we handle our meals.  before july, i would cook (not so healthy) dinners 5 or 6 days a week.  we would go out once a week for dinner and just grab leftovers, fast food, or whatever junk we had around the house for lunch.  these days…i cook healthy meals 3 to 4 nights a week.  i also do a clean meal prep once or twice a week that we can eat for lunches, my husband can take to work, or that i can reheat on a busy evening.  this was one of my meal prep days.

i start with the clean crockpot turkey chili this makes 8 servings which i put in single serving containers.  i don’t add the cheese or greek yogurt when on the 24 day challenge.

then i made a mexican bowl.  i started with a pound of lean ground turkey.

ingredients:

- 1 lb of lean ground turkey

- packet of taco seasoning (or you can make your own)

- cooked brown rice (i made what the package suggested for 4 servings)

- 2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained

directions:

- i cooked the turkey through before adding the taco seasoning.  then i simply gathered 4 containers and layered 1/2 cup black beans, 2/3 cup of the prepared brown rice, and 1/4th of the ground turkey (approximately 4 ounces).  i did have some left over this day and put together a small fifth container.

when serving i use lots of fresh salsa (my mom’s is the best!).  you can also add reduced fat shredded cheddar, fat-free sour cream or plain greek yogurt, avocado, cilantro, jalapenos, etc.  whatever mexican toppings your heart desires!
