Happy Sunday everyone! I am coming at you a little later than normal. I was busy with some stuff right after I meal prepped today and now I finally have a moment to relax and blog! 🙂
Lunch: Salad made with TJs chicken, TJs Veggie 8 Mix, Black Beans, Grapes, Cucumber, Avocado and Tomatoes. Served with purple sweet potatoes this week!
Last week I was scrolling on Instagram someone posted a picture of polenta with tomatoes sauce on it that they had for dinner. I have seen polenta at Trader Joe’s but never thought to try it. I decided to go for it this week!
I bought two packages of the polenta because it said that 1/5th is a serving size but it’s like 60 calories! I figured that wouldn’t be filling enough so I decided two servings would be better.
To make the sauce I bought the pre-chopped Mirepoix mix from Trader Joe’s. It just makes life easier sometimes. I cooked it along with ground turkey then added a big can of diced tomatoes and let it simmer away to make a sauce.
I cut the polenta up.
Then cooked it on the stove top with olive oil until it kind of browned.
Then I portioned it out and served it with the sauce on top!
I also roasted some Brussels sprouts as a side.
That is wrap up of my meal prep this week! I am looking forward to enjoying some yummy polenta!
Have you ever tried polenta?
Are you prepping for Thanksgiving yet?
