Meal Prep: Turkey Crumble and Quinoa Salad

Meal prep can eliminates stress and save you time in the kitchen. Having healthy readily available meals will help you stay on track with healthy eating. I don't meal prep all the time, but when I do my favorite go to's are lean meats and vegetables. I love to jazz my foods up by adding salt free seasoning (most of the time), garlic, mined ginger, onions (red & yellow), and peppers (all colors). Nobody has time for bland food. Lol!

I like to alternate between lean ground turkey, beef, and chicken. Today, I used 93% lean ground turkey, green peppers, yellow onion, garlic, minced ginger, and a few dashes of Bragg Amino liquids.

Season used.

I don't add salt because the Bragg Liquid Aminos I use contains sodium. A few shakes of Mrs. Dash garlic and herb and black pepper usually does the trick.

I weigh out 4 oz of meat then add 1 cup of vegetables or 1/3 cup of carbs. Depending on if I'm using it to fuel my workout I'll add all three. Whatever vegetable I have in stock is what I use such as green beans, squash, broccoli (sparingly), spinach, mixed vegetables or leafy greens. My carbs are sweet potato, quinoa, brown rice or jasmine rice.

I'm always experimenting in the kitchen with food so I decided to get creative with my quinoa today. I mixed in english cucumber, red onion, and a few splashes of balsamic vinegar. It was delicious! Since my whole family doesn't eat quinoa, I like to buy Roland brand. Which only contains a few servings. You can also make quinoa from scratch adding flavor by using sautéed onions, garlic, mushrooms or chicken stock. It's pretty easy to prepare either way.

Do you meal prep?
