Eggroll in a Bowl

...An easy and macro friendly meal prep lunch or dinner for the family. This can be paleo, low carb, and keto friendly depending on what your dietary preferences are!


Makes approximately 5 lunches

Ingredients: 

  • 1-1.5lbs pound lean ground meat (I usually use 90% ground turkey but you can use chicken, pork, or beef!) 

  • 1 bag cole slaw mix

  • 1 bag broccoli slaw

  • 1/2 medium white onion, thinly sliced 

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (I use the kind from the jar)

  • 2-3tsp ginger, minced 

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce, tamari (gluten free), or coconut aminos (for paleo)

  • 5 teaspoons toasted sesame oil 

  • Sliced green onions, for garnish

  • Rice (if you want to add more carbs to your meal)

  • Broth to cook with

  • Everything but the bagel seasoning

Directions: 

  1. Brown the ground meat on low/medium heat in a non stick skillet and once cooked, place in a large bowl and set aside. 

  2. Turn the heat up to med/high and once warm, add a little broth to the skillet. Add in sliced onions and let cook until they start to brown slightly, stirring occasionally. Add in the garlic and ginger and let cook for another minute. 

  3. Add a splash more broth if needed and add the cole slaw, broccoli slaw, and coconut aminos. Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, until the cabbage has just begun to wilt but is still crunchy. Don’t overcook it as you don’t want it mushy!

  4. Divide the cooked cabbage/onion mixture into your containers and top with the ground meat. 

  5. If you want carbs for your meal, add the appropriate amount of cooked rice to each container. 

  6. Drizzle 1tsp toasted sesame oil over the top of each container.

  7. Stir each one to mix the meat, veggies, rice, and oil together. 

  8. Top with sliced green onion and a few sprinkles of everything but the bagel seasoning and you are ready to go!

You can change the flavors up on this as much as you’d like, add hot/chile sauce, etc. 

If you are not making individual lunches, once the slaw portion is cooked, add your protein back to the skillet and top with oil, green onions, and seasoning to taste!
