California Turkey Bowls are one of my fav meals of the week! I’m working on meal prep ideas to make the weeknights easy! I love making healthy food more convenient. This dish is packed with protein, veggies and fiber! I’ve got a few easy prep ideas to make weeknights a breeze. I used Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey to create these simple and healthy California Turkey Bowls. The best part is you can also adjust it to make tacos or a salad too!

Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey is a healthy and lean source of protein. We often use ground beef but love switching it up with ground turkey or chicken. I like that Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey has no antibiotics or added hormones. Our kiddos love ground turkey and we make quite a few different meals with it every week.

Meal Prep California Turkey Bowls

If you want to prep the California Turkey bowls over the weekend, get started by cooking the rice and the ground turkey. You can also chop up the veggies and make the jalapeño ranch sauce. The California Turkey Bowl is a simple bowl that comes together with vibrant flavors. I like to add taco seasoning to spice up the ground turkey. You can simply use salt and pepper if you prefer but I like a little more spice.

Ingredients for California Turkey Bowls

You can also use white, brown rice or even quinoa. What I love about these bowls is that you can mix it up with whatever you have in the fridge.

Once the turkey, rice and beans are cooked you can assemble the bowl. I start out with chopped lettuce then layer on rows of ground turkey, black beans, rice and veggies.
