MEAL PREP | Ground Turkey Fajitas

Happy Monday Nerds!

Let’s start the week right, and get some Meal Prepping done. I do mine on Sundays, and set my meals for the week ahead.

If you read this past #FitFriday’s blog about how I stay motivated, then you know getting myself ready before hand is one of the ways I keep myself going and on track. Meal prepping is one of the things that helps me do that. So each week, I make myself something different for lunch. And I am going to try my very best to share my meals with you.

Prepping your meals is pretty easy. You need a veggie, a starch/complex carb, and protein. The more you do it, the easier it gets, and the more creative you become. Like for example this week, I wanted something along the lines of Mexican food. So I tossed together my idea of a fajita.

What you’ll need:

  • Ground turkey
  • Brown Rice
  • Green and red bell peppers
  • Onions
  • Guacamole
  • Fat-free sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • Cheese (optional)
  • Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

And this is how I put it together.

Season the meat to your liking. I used Sea Salt, and 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe’s because the fajita seasoning has way too much sodium.

I wanted to add some black beans to it, but I completely forgot to pick them up. So that’s another option to include.

To finish it off, I topped it with cheese, guacamole, and a dollop of fat free sour cream.


And I have great news, my trainer Jim, agreed to do a series on meal prepping, so look for that soon!

Do you prep? What’s your favorite go to meal? I could always use a new recipe, and you know, sharing is caring.


PS. The bowls are from IKEA if anyone is wondering.
