This recipe is what I would call “cleaner” eating! It is not 100% clean eating recipe but it is very healthy, filling, and hearty. Also feel free to season this with whatever seasonings you like on your food!

Ingredients

Onion- chopped up (1/4 of the onion)

Peppers- whichever color you prefer, chopped up

Spinach or Zucchini- chopped up (1/4 cup)

Any other vegetable you would like to put in

1 lb of ground Turkey

1 1/2 Cups or Brown Rice, or whole wheat pasta ( If i use pasta I use the no yolk whole wheat pasta just because they cook faster)

1 can of low sodium, Light tomato soup

Paprika

Garlic powder

 

Instructions

  1.  Chop all the veggies, so onion, peppers, spinach, zucchini, broccoli, etc. You can really use whichever vegetables you like for this. In a skillet fry them up with a little bit of olive oil over medium heat.  Season lightly with garlic powder and paprika! This would take about 4 minutes to lightly fry the veggies with the seasoning.
  2. Add in your defrosted 1 lb of ground turkey. Cook and brown up the turkey with the veggies until the ground turkey is fully cooked, again over medium heat. It looks white when it is done.
  3. Then add in your can of  light, low sodium tomato soup and then 1 can of water. Add in your rice or your pasta which every you are doing.
  4. Stir it well. Then cover and let simmer over low heat until rice or pasta is cooked and the consistency thickens up a bit.

Optional- if you want when it is done, remove from heat and sprinkle with a little bit of shredded cheese.

This makes a nice hearty meal that is still healthy! When I do this I normally prepare some frozen veggies to have on the side as the amount of veggies that will be in one serving of this is not enough to count as 1 Green Container when on the 21 Day Fix. My fix containers that I count one serving of this to be is 1 Yellow, 1 Red, 1 Green (with my mixed veggies), 1/4 Blue if I use a sprinke of cheese. (The tomato soup technically doesn’t fall in the 21 Day Fix so this would be an extra. An alternative would be to use crushed tomatoes instead of the soup mix)
