I took my easy, go-to turkey taco recipe and turned it into this easy meal prep lunch. The whole thing comes together in under 30 minutes, start to finish. If you've been following my free meal plans, you probably know I've been incorporating more meal prep recipes in them, recipes you can make once that can be served for the week.

Last week I took a poll on my Instagram stories to see what type of healthy meal prep lunches you would like to see for 2019, and it varied greatly from cold and hot lunches, and everything from balanced meals that include grains to keto, low-carb, whole30 and more. So, I will incorporate all of the above in the coming month. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments!

How To Make Turkey Taco Salad:

The easiest way to pack this lunch, is to keep the greens separate so you can heat up the turkey without heating up the rest. Then refrigerate everything so you can grab one in the morning before heading out the door! If you want to keep this whole30, omit the cheese and swap it for avocado. Of course, this can also be served for dinner if you wish!

Variations:

  • Add black or pinto beans for more protein.
  • Add crushed tortilla chips on top for texture.
  • Swap the cheese for avocado to keep it dairy free.
