Clean Eats: Mexican Turkey Mince

9 May

After having grilled chicken, brown rice and broccoli for lunch everyday last week it was time for a change. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some juicy breasts (of the chook kind – get your mind out of the gutter you filthy people!) but it was time to change it up.

Enter turkey mince. It’s lean, tasty and, most importantly, it’s high in protein.

There’s no real recipe to this, so imma make it real easy for you.

Grab a couple of cloves of garlic. Mince them or dice finely. Brown in a little olive oil in a pan over medium heat.

Take 500g of turkey mince and add that to the pan. Stir until browned.

Add a sprinkle of ground cumin, ground coriander, cajun seasoning and chilli flakes to taste. Season with salt and pepper.

Finally, stir in two tablespoons of tomato paste. Done. Easy right?

Serve with a cup of green vegetables and half a cup of brown rice and you have a healthy and clean dinner or lunch that comes in under 380 calories.

So tell me, how did everyone do with their first week of Project Tighten Up? Would love to hear! I have measurements coming later in the week so I will share them with you then. 🙂
