Ground turkey is a great way to get lean protein that will keep you energized throughout the day! We know time is tight for most people, so we came up with a meal prep that is quick and still allows for variety throughout the week! Start with a big batch of season ground turkey, and mix and match these toppings to make nutritious and easy meals!
Recipe #1: Sweet Potato & Egg hash
On those days you need a protein packed meal, go for this delicious sweet potato and egg hash. It is balanced in nutrients, and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
-1 medium sweet potato
-Cooked ground beef
When cooking sweet potatoes, we find it is easiest and quickest to chop them up, microwave them for 5 minutes with a little water in the bottom of the dish, then finish up with a sauté on the skillet. Do this and top with your favorite type of egg, along with the ground beef, and your hunger needs will be met!
Recipe #2: Ground Turkey lettuce Wraps
We love lettuce wraps because they are healthy and extremely versatile. In these we did a simple lettuce wrap with ground beef and salsa, but top yours with avocado, sautéed veggies, or anything else that sounds good and you have a quick and delicious meal!
Recipe #3: Skinny burrito bowl
Who doesn't love a good burrito bowl? For ours we tried to keep it simple and healthy, but you can take this base of ground turkey and mix it with whatever sounds best.
- Brown rice (if you are really short on time Trader Joe's sells pre cooked brown rice packs)
- Green Onion
- Ground Turkey
