Meal Prep, Meat Production
The macronutrient I struggled the most to get enough of was protein. I decided find the most organized AF way to hit my minimums.
Below is the mass production of turkey taco meat. I will make 30 or more servings of a single protein. I make 1 type of protein each weekend. This allows me to rotating the meat, I don’t get bored and have variety to choose from.
Step 1: Invest in Tupperware. For protein I have about 60, 1 cup containers (I like the rectangle so they stack nice in the freezer) and I also have about 60, 1/2 cup containers (also a square so they stack on the door and in the freezer).
Step 2: Measure /Weigh ALL of the raw meat.
Step 3: Enter these into you fitness tracker as a recipe; I use MyFitnessPal.
Step 4: Add seasoning to the meat and add these to your recipe.
Step 5: Cook all of the protein.
Step 5a: My trick to get finely shredded ground turkey is while and after you are cooking each batch, mash it up with a whisk. That 99% ground turkey is stubborn and this helps a ton.
Step 6: Re-weigh all of the protein. Divide this number by the number of servings or containers you have available
Step 7: Portion and let cool.
Step 8: Freeze
Step 9: Pull them out of the freezer as needed. I use the ice cold meat as the ice pack in my cooler for work.
