Last night, around 9:00 p.m., I cobbled together a lunch for today that turned out to be totally kickass. My lunch RULED!
This is a 3-block Zone meal. You can easily make it four blocks by adding a more protein and fat. If you’re a giant human and get to eat 5 blocks at a meal, f*ck you. (I’m bitter today about being “petite.”)
- Taco Turkey Salad w/ Lime Cabbage Slaw
- Sauteed Spicy Zucchini
- Blueberries & Almonds
- 1 lb. Ground Turkey
- Penzeys Special Seasoned Salt (Trust me. This will make you fall in love with vegetables. Truly.)
How to make it:
(This makes one serving.)
Taco Turkey: Heat some fat in a pan and sauté ground turkey with some cumin, chili powder, oregano, salt & pepper. (You can also just use commercial taco seasoning.) One pound of turkey makes enough for 2-3 servings.
Lime Cabbage Slaw: Slice cabbage really thin and toss 2 cups of the cabbage with the juice of one lime. Sprinkle generously with salt & pepper. Toss well and let it sit for, like, 10 minutes. If you’d like, you can add some olive oil, too… or chopped olives.
Zucchini: Slice zucchini. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Toss in the zucchini; sprinkle with garlic powder and Penzeys Special Seasoned Salt. Cook to desired squishiness.
Strawberries: Wash, slice, sprinkle with Splenda, and chill
- Pile the Lime Slaw on a plate and top it with 3 oz. of the Taco Turkey. Add more pepper… and maybe some avocado and olives.
- Round our your awesome Zone meal with 1 cup of the zucchini, 1/2 cup blueberries, and 9 almonds.
