Extra Lean Ground Turkey Fried Rice

Oh my goodness friends!  I made a meal that I'm in love with and couldn't wait to share it with you. Last week I posted about my pre-made extra lean ground turkey meals.  I ended up adding 1/3 cup of steamed brown rice to get some carbs in and then, to change it up, I decided to make it Asian and fry up an egg and onion in a tiny bit of peanut oil (a "good" fat) and then added in the pre-made meal.  It is so good! 

Here is a pic of the pre-made meals (before I added the steamed brown rice).

To make the meals:

Extra lean ground turkey (I buy 99% lean) - brown it with mushrooms, chopped onion, garlic, about 2 tablespoons of worchestershire sauce, low sodium soy sauce, and Dijon mustard

Steamed chopped veggies (I used zucchini, squash, and carrot)

Steamed brown rice 

In each meal is about 3/4 cup of the meat, 3/4 cup to 1 cup veggies, 1/3 cup of rice.

To make the fried rice version:

Fry up some eggs in a tablespoon of peanut oil along with chopped onion (scallions would be perfect but I didn't have any).  On medium-high heat, add in the rice, turkey mixture, and veggies.  Let the rice get "fried" and keep stirring until it's all heated through.

For one meal, I added one or two eggs- this was for two meals.

Let me know if you try it! 


Bikini Contest Prep Update: So far I've met with my trainer once and we train again tomorrow (where he'll measure my body composition and give me a meal plan).  I'll be sharing those details with you soon!
