Easy One Pot Meal Idea

Most people think that eating healthy takes a lot of prep time. My advice when looking for healthy recipe inspiration? Focus on building your meals on protein and produce. Here’s a quick and easy recipe that fulfill my Protein & Produce Rule.

Easy Turkey Chili

1 # 99% lean ground turkey

1 package taco seasoning (low sodium) OR 2 T. chili powder, 1 1/2 t. cumin, 2 t. garlic powder

2/3 C. Each: chopped onion, celery and carrot (Celery tip: Use the softer center part and tops of celery hearts, then use the firmer outer part for snacking)

1-1/2 C. salsa

1 can of pinto beans-rinsed

1 T. olive oil or canola oil

Heat oil in a large sauce pan, add onion, carrot and celery, cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, season with salt and pepper. Add turkey and cook until it’s no longer pink, add taco seasoning, salsa and beans. Simmer on low 20 minutes.  Make extras for lunch next week!
