NOTE: I normally cook up a large batch of ground turkey, and I use that throughout the week for dinners and lunches… most of my lunches are made with this, or are left-overs from other dinners.
1/2 cup cooked ground turkey, 1/2 cup black beans, salsa, 1/4 cup reduced fat cheese, all on a bed of lettuce or spinach (I prefer spinach). Add any veggies you want with it (bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, etc….) Sometimes I also add some wild rice/quinoa for a little variety.
1/2 cup cooked whole wheat/whole grain pasta, 1/2 cup ground turkey, 1/4 cup pasta sauce and some type of veggies to go with it.. (I like to use alfredo sauce and broccoli. yum!) This is about 7points+, depending on what type of sauce you use.
I eat chicken aallll the time! I grill it with teriyaki sauce, sometimes I bake it, sometimes I chop it up and kind of steam it in salsa and use it for taco salads or burrito bowls… anything. I almost never use a recipe. I normally just kind of wing it. lol A boneless skinless chicken breast is usually about 4 points, depending on the size.
I normally pair my chicken with either black beans, wild rice/quinoa, baked potatoes (NO BUTTER!), and toonns of veggies! half of your plate should be veggies!
Make a salad loaded with green veggies. Light ranch (2 points+ depending on brand)or other light dressing of your choice, Add chicken breast for protein.
You can buy the frozen patties, or make your own with ground turkey. (I prefer to make my own.) If you use a bun, use the “sandwich thins”
1 can drained tuna. 1-2 tablespoons of light mayo (1 point for each tablespoon) add loads of chopped up veggies (I like green onions, red/yellow onions, celery and pickles)… Instead of putting it on bread, make little lettuce wraps using romaine lettuce. Or instead of adding chopped up celery, put the tuna in the celery. (4-5 points+ depending on how much mayo you use)
