This bowl hit the spot. Not only was the flavor great, it had plenty of healthy fats and protein that kept me full for hours. Do you battle crazy cravings at night? Or find yourself roaming the kitchen before bed? Typically when we have high cravings at night it means that we restricted our eating too much earlier in the day. I used to “hoard” my macros for night time in fear I would be hungry and not have any left to eat. The problem with that cycle is that I was actually making my cravings and urge to snack WAY stronger by skimping on my earlier meals just to save those macros for night time. If you balance out your macros more evenly throughout your day, you’ll be amazed at how much more manageable those late night cravings become!
I had a handful of clients request a breakfast idea that did NOT involve eggs. Here is what you need:
3 oz butternut squash (roasted)
2 oz broccoli florets (roasted)
4 oz organic ground turkey
1/2 cup of cooked rice ( I just used minute rice)
50 grams of avocado
14 grams of reduced fat shredded cheese
4 TBL of salsa verde
Add a sprinkle of garlic salt and pepper for taste
You can either make this the morning of or do a little prep and roast your veggies and cook your rice the night before. If your mornings are super busy, make sure to double or triple this recipe when prepping so you can make this bowl for a few mornings without having to prep each individual morning.
Turn oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and spray with non stick spray. Lay butternut squash on one side, broccoli on the other and roast for about 30 minutes. ( All ovens will cook differently so just make sure squash is easily pierced with a fork to make sure its done).
While veggies are roasting, cook ground turkey in a pan. I also boiled my water and cooked my rice, then start layering your bowl!
Start with rice, then ground turkey. I then added my roasted butternut squash and broccoli. Top with cheese, salsa and avocado!

(You can make a lower fat version by using a leaner turkey, eliminating the cheese or using less avocado but I promise using the above serving will fill you up and keep you full longer).
