Meal Prep Edition 4

Hi Guys!  This week’s meal prep was super easy and quick because I didn’t have a lot of time on Sunday.  We made a quick run to the grocery store and I picked up a few necessities along with some fruits and veggies.  When we got home, I threw together some quick meals and snacks for the week.  I love meal prepping every week because it’s so easy to have everything ready.  But this week it was necessary!  I have been pretty sick the last couple of days and definitely didn’t feel like cooking anything, so it was super easy to just warm up one of these meals and have something hot to eat without having to spend the time prepping, cooking, and cleaning!   more “Meal Prep Edition 4”

Simple Ground Turkey Recipe

Easy Ground Turkey Recipe New Blog Post Run and Live Happy (7)

I got a new recipe from a friend last week, and she made it sound so good that I decided to try it myself.  I am all about trying out new recipes, especially easy ones.  This dish is so healthy for you, but it doesn’t taste like it.  The meat is packed full of flavor!

You will not believe how super simple this recipe is!  It literally took me less than five minutes to prep it! I am really excited to share it with you!

All you need is a pound of ground turkey meat and some kind of seasoning. I used Mrs. Dash southwest chipotle seasoning.

Now for the easy part –

I dumped the ground turkey into a glass baking dish and covered it with Mrs. Dash.  My friend said to season it well, and once you think you’ve got enough on there, add some more.  I completely covered the top and sides with seasoning.  (The juices from the turkey will wash some of it off.)

Then I put it in a 400 degree oven.  My friend said to cook it about 20 minutes, but after 20 minutes mine was still raw.  So I ended up cooking it for 40 minutes, but I checked it every 5 minutes.  I would also scoop out all of the fat.

I used a meat thermometer to make sure it was done and then I also cut it in half to double check.   I think next time I may turn the heat up on the oven to decrease the cooking time.

Once it is cooked through, it kind of looks like a casserole.  The spices form a crust on the outside of the meat.  The inside is moist and delicious!  One serving of this has only 160 calories.  It also has 22 grams of protein!  (Calculations are based on My Fitness Pal.)

To go with my ground turkey, I steamed some asparagus and seasoned them with a little bit of Lawrys seasoning salt.

I could not believe how easy and delicious this was!  I always have ground turkey in the freezer, so this will be a quick meal for when I don’t have a lot of time.  One pound of ground turkey made 4 lunches.  I just put each serving in a plastic container with some asparagus and put it in the fridge until I’m ready to eat it!
