Every week, I am committed to providing you all with the tools that I am using to stay on track. The most crucial, in my opinion, is my meal plan and prep. This is often the most difficult for people but once you master is… you are going to start crushing your goals!!
Meal planning/prepping takes practice!! Do not get discouraged if it takes a little longer then you anticipated the first few times or you fall off track. You can ALWAYS get back on track and you owe it to yourself to do so!
So first off, here is my meal plan for this week:
Personally, I like to have repetition in my meal plan so I don’t have to buy so many different foods and have any of it go to waste!
Next, I make my grocery list:
Let me go ahead and share the Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe that I am using for my dinner:
1 lb 93% lean ground beef (I doubled this!)
1 garlic, minced
1/4 onion, minced
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp kosher salt
3 large sweet red bell peppers, washed
1 cup fat free chicken broth
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1.5 cups cooked brown rice (I used the microwavable kind)
Olive Oil Spray
6 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet and heat on medium. Add onion, garlic and cilantro; saute for about 2 minutes. Add ground turkey, salt, garlic powder and cumin; cook meat for 4 to 5 minutes or until meat is completely cooked.
Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup chicken broth, mix well and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Combine cooked rice and meat together.
Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise, and remove all seeds. Spoon 2/3 cup meat mixture into each pepper half and place in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Top each with 1tbsp cheese. Pour the remainder of the chicken broth on the bottom on the dish. Cover tight with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and serve!
This recipe makes 6 servings. Serving size = 1/2 pepper.
