Sharing some of my go-to recipes for meal prep.
These are great for people just starting to meal prep who may need some ideas for balanced meals or the experienced meal prepster who needs some fresh ideas for macro balanced prep.
Lunch or Dinner?
This meal prep is a great hearty meal, packed with protein and fiber. Can you believe its only 5 ingredients!?
*MEAL PREP TIP!! – For turkey meat that doesn’t dry out; cook it until it’s about 90% browned (a little pink) then turn off the heat. Add seasoning mix as directed and let rest for 10 minutes to finish cooking.
- %85 lean ground turkey
- Southwest Organic taco seasoning mix
- Bell peppers
- Organic black beans
- 1/2 avocado
- Green beans
I cook the turkey with seasoning. For my meal prep I add 1/3 cup turkey and 1/2 cup bell peppers with black beans. *MEAL PREP TIP Don’t over cook your veggies making them soggy! The bell peppers cook in about 7 minutes with the black beans.
FRUIT SALAD + HARD BOILED EGGS
A light meal or snack. I love salads and trying new fruits and veggies.
I use this Organic Super Greens mix for my salad base. To add some crunch and texture I used my veggie spiralizer to spiralize diakon. I added some berries on the side and I use a fruit balsamic vinaigrette dressing. *MEAL PREP TIP don’t add salad dressing until you are ready to eat. Too much dressing too early makes a soggy salad.
For snacks I like fresh fruit (bananas, apples, kiwi, oranges..) Veggies like avocado, celery, carrots and radishes. Having protein shakes as a snack during my day keep my energy up and keep me feeling full.
Here are some simple ideas of foods that would be great to add to a meal prep. You want to have a balance of the three macronutruients our bodies need. (protein, fat, carbs) A balanced diet will not only make you feel better but make it much easier to lose weight.
Get stuck on what to eat? I always play with food to come up with new recipes and flavors that are good for my body. Don’t be afraid to try something new.
