This dish is possibly the EASIEST thing to meal prep.  I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner.  I used to think meal prepping was pointless since I worked from home, but just meal prepping this lunch has been a GAME CHANGER and I want to share it with you.  The no dishes at lunch time just cuts my time in half do either play with the kids or get some work done.   I doubled this batch for both my husband and I.  Enough for 4 days.

(MAKES 4-5 SERVINGS)

so double this if you want to make for your partner or kids too. Its delicious turkey.  Oaks loves it.

FOR MEAT

 

FOR SAUCE

-1/4 cup Honey 

-1/2 tbsp Sesame oil

-3 tbsp Liquid Aminos

 

SIDES & TOPPINGS 

-1 cup Dry Quinoa

-1/2 cup chopped green onions

-2 cups steamed broccoli 

Cholula Sauce & everything but the bagel seasoning  

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook quinoa according to package. I use the Aroma Pot.  Add 1 cup dry mix then 2 cups water and hit the quinoa button and it’ll beep when done.  If you don’t have one you can use a saucepan and cook over the stove the same way.  Just cover it.  I also steam my broccoli on the tray on top, if you don’t have it then the other option is to boil your broccoli, or you can sautee it with a little oil and cook for about 20  minutes over stove top.
  • Heat up olive oil over pan over medium heat.  Then add garlic and sautee for about 2 minutes.  Then add your ground turkey and cook until done.  About 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile add honey, sesame oil and aminos to a small bowl.  Once ground turkey is cooked through, add in the sauce mixture and let simmer for a couple minutes.
  • Remove from heat and place in container.
  • Chop up your green onions.
  • Get a 1/2 cup out and scoop up 1/2 cup ground turkey mixture and place in the MEAL PREP CONTAINER.  These are reusable and I highly recommend them.  If not, I love these glass containers and you can just add all the ground turkey in them.
  • Scoop 1/2 cup of quinoa in meal prep container. 
  • Add green onions to top of turkey.
  • Place enough to fill the cup with your broccoli.

Then when you go to heat it up, add in the bagel seasoning and cholulua sauce over the quinoa and broccoli.  I also like to scoop the quinoa over into the ground turkey when I go to eat it.

HOT TIP: plan on using 2 pans for each serving.  If you double it of course.  It took me about 2 hours total to do all of this.  One mess and done!  So nice to have your meals ready for the week.  It sets you up for a good healthy week.  I feel like it gives me momentum to make healthier choices too.

MY RIDE OR DIE SKINCARE

Gift Guides (MY RIDE OR DIES SKINCARE)

Gift Guides (MY RIDE OR DIES SKINCARE)

If there were ever any products you buy because of a post, these should be it!  They’re my ride or die.  I can’t live without them … although I am living without the peel pads and retinol right now due to nursing, but I’ll get right back on that train once I’m done.  Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to some great skin this year.  You deserve it!

If you had to splurge on 1-2 of these products I would tell you peel pads and retinol.  If it were only one, peel pads.  If you’re nursing Vitamin c serum.  Get all if can afford it because they’re life changing.  

ROSE HIP OIL: I put this on every night as a last step to my skincare routine.  Just to give my skin some more moisture, especially in these dry months.  I love the oils and I love the hydration it gives.  I also use this before I use the gua sha tool if I’m wanting to give myself a little facial massage. It has vitamin A in it so I swear has made my skin brighter.  I talk more about it Rose Hip Oil Benefits in that post. 

LANIEGE SLEEPING LIP MASK:  I’m sure you’ve heard about this.  I had to see what the rage was, and it definitely lived up to its hype for me.  I don’t just use it on night, I use it as a lip gloss too. I’m telling you, its bomb.

DR DENNIS GROSS EXFOLIATING MOISTURIZER: Holy crap, this stuff is where its at.  Every time I use it I do a little dance because it just gets it.  It’s so hydrating and feels so good as you apply it.  I love how it makes my skin look after applying.  I’ve used SO many moisturizers, and this moisturizer is something I ALWAYS go back to.  It’s my ride or die.

ELTA MD FOAMING CLEANSER:  I love a cleanser that feels like your skin is clean ,but not too much.  I don’t want to be stripped dry.  This does just that.  It foams up as you cleanse and it’s a little slice of heaven.  I only cleanse my face every night.  I just rinse with water in the mornings.  I don’t want to clean off the products from the night before.  The only time you can find me cleansing in the morning is if I worked out beforehand.

ELTA MD TINTED SUNSCREEN:  This is a gem.  Again, I’ve tried so many sunscreens and this one is my top.  Just hydrating enough, but not too much that you feel oily.  It actually is great for acne prone skin, it’ll clear you up!  

DR DENNIS GROSS RETINOL:  when I’m using this product I can see a difference within just a week.  My skin is brighter and clear, diminished wrinkles too.  This is something I don’t use while I’m pregnant or nursing though.  So if you’re nursing like me, its recommended to wait until you’re done nursing!

DR DENNIS GROSS VITAMIN C SERUM:  If you can’t tell by now, Dr Dennis Gross is my top favorite skincare brand.  This stuff is a gem.  You can use it while nursing and pregnant too because it’s vitamin c.  This will give your skin life!  I use it in the mornings after I rinse with water.

DR DENNIS GROSS PEEL PADS: last but not least, peel pads!  Oh, I swear by these.  I know a lot of you use these too, I tell everyone with skin issues about them, literally everyone.  When I was using this with the retinol combo, my skin was on point!  Pores shrunk, diminished wrinkles, skin clear and bright.  I looked like I drank so much water and slept a lot haha.  I got a lot of compliments when I was using those.  I would tell everyone about that.  These are something I don’t use right now either because of nursing.
