Hello! I’m working with Foster Farms to share 5 different ways to make their organic ground turkey for a week of meal prep. This is a super easy way to prepare 5 healthy lunches or dinners with one protein.
This is how I usually meal prep with ground turkey – I cook it up with onions and my favorite seasonings and then have it a few different ways. Sometimes I’ll make it more Mexican food style with chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. My other go-to is Italian style with tons of garlic and Italian seasoning.
5 days of Meal Prep with Ground Turkey
Ingredients: 1 onion, Foster Farms organic ground turkey, minced garlic, salt & pepper, no salt seasoning
optional: diced bell pepper, tomatoes, mushrooms, seasonings of your choice
Step 1: Dice onion. Pre-heat pan with 2 Tb olive oil, add onion and cook until translucent.
Add turkey – season with salt, pepper, garlic, no salt seasoning mix.
Optional – add veggies. Cook through.
Now we have a big ol’ pan of clean protein and you can make it into anything you want. Well, maybe not cake but a lot of different things!
Step 2: Pair the cooked turkey with your favorite veggies and grains for a complete meal. Plan out your menu so you know if you have all the sides needed for each dish.
I roasted 2 huge bags of broccoli and cauliflower to have with it. And two weeks ago I just kept it simple by portioning out the turkey and veggies. The picture below shows my meal prep containers with ground turkey and veggies but I ate them over a salad or rice with some extras.
Monday: I used it on top of a random salad… I piled it on top of veggies and added hummus to the mix.
You can add salsa, beans and guacamole for a turkey taco salad – that’s another one of my go-tos.
Tuesday: Turkey tacos… a healthy spin on Taco Tuesday!
Wednesday: Turkey and grain bowl – Ground turkey paired with your favorite rice, pasta, couscous or potato and veggies.
Thursday: Kitchen sink salad… or should I call it a whatever you find in the fridge salad?
Ground turkey with all the other random things in my fridge… salad, carrots, hummus, veggies, garlic bread.
Friday: Turkey with pasta sauce. I served this over zucchini noodles aka zoodles.
