You know I am all about that one pot cooking. If I can through my protein and carb into the same pan and add whatever vegetables that suit my fancy that day... that's a successful meal!
Turkey Pesto & White Beans
4 servings, 361 calories per serving
1 lb. ground turkey
1 TB olive oil
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can great northern beans (or other white beans)
1/4 cup pesto
+ Heat up olive oil in a pan. Add ground turkey and cook until pink is gone.
+ Add tomatoes, beans (drained), and pesto. Stir and heat through.
Seriously, it is that simple!
I will be enjoying this over steamed spinach and broccoli. It would also be great over cauliflower or zucchini veggie spirals or spaghetti squash!
I try to keep my meals to about 400 calories each. This meal works great for that once I add in my veggies of choice! On my nutrition plan, each meal is balanced with 1 Protein, 1 Carb, and as many vegetables as I like. This meal also meets those needs.
1 Protein = Ground Turkey (4 oz.)
1 Carb = Great Northern Beans (a can has 3.5 servings, I split a can into 4 servings)
1 Vegetable = Tomatoes (plus whatever additional vegetables I add to fill my plate)
1 Oil = Olive Oil
