Protein packed turkey burrito bowl

Here’s a great recipe for when you are getting organised and doing some meal prep. It packages up well and freezes beautifully, perfect to defrost and reheat on a busy night.

Thank you to 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Cassie for sending this fab recipe and photo. Feel free to change the meat to whatever you have on hand, or add tofu to make it a vegetarian meal.

As part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge we have stacks of Mexican inspired meals. Think Mexican pork fajitas, vegetarian nachos and Mexican lasagne.
