  • 3/4 cup brown rice (uncooked; may be swapped for quinoa or long grain white rice)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 lime (zested)


  • 3/4 lb lean ground turkey (beef or chicken may be swapped)
  • 2 tablespoons homemade taco seasoning
  • 2/3 cup water


  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 jalapeno (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 cup red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 12 oz can corn kernels (341 mL; drained)
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella (shredded)


  • Cook brown rice according to package directions, adding the lime zest and salt to the cooking water. Allow to cool slightly before portioning out.
  • Add turkey to a medium pan and cook over medium heat, breaking it up with a spatula until no longer pink (approximately 10 minutes).
  • Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the cooked meat, then add the water. Stir and simmer for a couple of minutes, until sauce has thickened.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before portioning out.
  • Combine all salsa ingredients and toss together.
  • To assemble lunch bowls, divide ingredients evenly between four 2-cup capacity meal prep containers.


  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • You may serve cold or warm up in the microwave before enjoying (see * notes)



* If you plan to warm these bowls up before serving, you may want to store the pico de gallo separate until after warming the rest of the ingredients up.
