One of the biggest drawbacks of meal prepping can be eating the same thing every day, week after week. How many chicken and veggie bowls can one person really eat? While you could change it up with a new dressing or sauce, there is one recipe I swear by to make meal prepping easy and diverse all at the same time: taco bowls. Catherine McCord's Turkey Taco Bowl class on the Food Network Kitchen app gives you the ideal base recipe for making lunch of your choosing every week without getting bored.

Catherine's recipe calls for ground turkey, but she says you can use whatever kind of protein you like. Ground chicken or beef would be an ideal one-to-one swap for the ground turkey in the recipe's combination of onion, garlic, protein and pepper. You could also incorporate black beans as a vegetarian-friendly protein, if you're looking to go more meatless.

Another meatless option? Air fried avocado! Catherine says she loves to bread slices of avocado and air fry them up to serve as the protein for in the bowls for her son, who's a vegetarian. Truly, the possibilities are endless.

Finally, customize these bowls with your favorite toppings like salsa, guacamole, sour cream and cheese. With so many ways to make these bowls your own, you'll never get bored.
