okay!

1 lb ground turkey breast
6 oz plain nonfat yogurt
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 c something - to - bind (oats, bread crumbs, etc., i use crushed corn flakes)
1/4 cup egg substitute (or 1 beaten egg)

1 large apple (granny smith) peeled (or not!) and chopped
1.5 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup shredded carrot

spray a large skillet with nonstick spray, or mist with olive oil, or use a little chicken broth to keep things from sticking.

saute carrots, onions, celery, and apple until softened.

while that's on the stove, mix the other ingredients in a large bowl.

when the veggies are done, let them cool off and then mix them in with the turkey stuff in the large bowl.

oven: 425 degrees

at this point you can make one giant loaf and bake it in a loaf pan, for 35-45 minutes, depending on how crunchy you like the edges. to test for doneness, poke a knife into the center, and if it comes out clean, it's done.

i like to make individual loaves and bake them on a cookie sheet. then i freeze them.

nutrition info:

3 servings ........... 4 servings...............5 servings ...........6 servings

39g protein.......... 29 pro......................23 pro.................19 pro
4g fiber................ 3 fib.........................2 fib.....................2 fib
13 mg calcium....10 cal........................8 cal....................6 cal

i usually make 4 or 5 servings. if i make 6, it looks more like meatballs than meatloaves. and three servings are pretty big, my girlfriend calls them 'greedy-people' servings.

shoot me a message if you have any questions.

I made stuffed bell peppers last night. Green peppers cleaned out, ground turkey, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes (I prefer to use fresh), chopped onion, green chilies for a little kick. You can add brown rice to the mix but I didn't have any on hand.

I put 2 lbs of skinless boneless chicken breasts, 1 package of frozen peppers and onions stirfry (no additives just frozen peppers & onions) and clean taco/ fajita seasoning (I found it on the Eat Clean website) in the crock pot - you don't need to add any liquid at all!
Cook it on high for 2 hours then turn it to low for 4 hours (you could do low for 8 hours too). Then shred the chicken with 2 forks and serve with everything you'd normally put on a clean fajita (greek yogurt, salsa, black beans, avacado etc). They are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

For ground turkey:
2 lbs ground turkey cooked and drained
1 bag frozen peas and carrots (no additives just frozen vegs)
1 to 1 1/2 c clean brown gravy
sliced mushrooms (1 cup)
mix it all together with minced garlic, and Italian seasoning

1 bag frozen cauliflower steamed and blended w/ a little water (consistency of mashed potatoes)
top with mashed cauliflower

bake covered for 20 minutes then take the foil off and bake for 15 more.

Tada. Ground turkey Cottage Pie

Not 100% clean, but pretty darn close.

Thai Lettuce Wraps - sorry I don't have amounts, I just cook by feel.

Ground Turkey
Garlic
Jalapeños
Lime Juice
Fresh Mint Leaves, Basil and Cilantro
Touch of Brown Sugar

Start browning turkey, add garlic after few minutes. Jalapeños a few more minutes later. Lime juice, brown sugar and fresh herbs/spices when turkey is almost done cooking.

Serve over lettuce leaves with Sriracha.
