Ground beef/turkey

This can be very versatile to use in such things as salads, veggies ‘n sauce, soups, stir-fries. Both proteins need to be lean at 96% and 93% lean respectively.

Spaghetti squash

Pasta swap! This vegetable is free as far as carbohydrate is concerned. There are many recipes on-line nowadays!!

Raw vegetables

Cut up many at one time such as yellow, red, and orange peppers, and also sliced cucumbers. Then you only have to pull out the cutting board once!
