It's Day Two of our 7-day meal plan.
Yesterday was pretty simple, and that'll keep going today. If you did all the make-ahead prep earlier this week, all three meals should take no longer than 15 minutes each to pull together. First up: almond milk oatmeal topped with fruit and a swirl of peanut butter. For lunch, a hearty vegetarian pita. For dinner: Spiced turkey gets tossed with fresh greens, crunchy carrots, and creamy sauce.

The oatmeal couldn't be easier — and it comes together in about 10 minutes.
The peanut butter adds creaminess (along with a few extra grams of protein) and the strawberries and banana add natural sweetness.
For lunch, you'll grab the roasted veggies + chickpeas + tzatziki that you prepped earlier in the week.
(Or if you didn't prep them, find the full instructions here.)
And pack ’em up with a pita.
For dinner, grab the leftover ground turkey mixture you prepped earlier this week and cook it in a skillet for about 5 minutes...
Then reheat a batch of the leftover rice...
And pile both into a bowl — garnishing with fresh greens, crunchy carrots, and Thai peanut sauce.
Then dig in!
