Teriyaki Ground Beef and Rice with Yum Yum Sauce

The majority of my lunch meal preps are made with chicken breast. With it being zero points it’s a favorite choice. My other reason is because my husband is allergic to all poultry. So I try to fit in chicken as much as possible at my lunch time.

I decided to change things up this week though. I love beef and the leanest choice for me is the 96/4% ground beef. I always have some in my fridge or freezer as I love to make taco bowls, salads and beef crunchwraps. This meal prep is one of my new favorites!

You can save on points with this one by using cauliflower which helps also if you prefer low carb.

Teriyaki Ground Beef and Rice with Yum Yum Sauce

YUM is the best word to describe this…pun intended. I love everything teriyaki but if you don't make your own it is high in sugar. Which of course it is because it tastes amazing. Trust me though, you don't need to buy from a restaurant or a store when you can make delicious teriyaki at home!
I decided to switch things up this week and have beef instead of chicken! It is worth the points with this delish meal prep. Then add in the lighter version of homemade yum yum sauce and BAM you have yourself a fantastic and super filling lunch!

If you have time, pickle your slaw or add in a light asian dressing like Newmans. I didn’t do either and it is still yummy!
I used butter lettuce just for a garnish. You can easily use the lettuce as a taco but be sure you put into baggies so it is separate from the rest.
