I wanted to tell you about yet another new healthy lunch recipe that I came up with recently. As you probably already figured out, I'm always trying to concoct meal ideas that are healthy but also unique and help to keep us from getting bored with our meals.2 large cans of chunked or shredded turkey breast (or use about 1-lb of fresh shredded turkey breast, which is slightly healthier)
One 16-20 oz. can of baked beans (yes, this has sugar, but is also balanced by high fiber and protein in this recipe)
1 large tomato diced (or 1 can crushed tomatoes)
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
A couple cloves fresh diced garlic (or a tablespoon or so of crushed garlic from the jar)
1 large vidalia onion diced
2 red peppers diced
I know this meal concoction may sound a little weird, but I had a couple friends try it and they couldn't believe how good it was. They demanded the recipe they liked it so much. Really it's nothing more than a bunch of stuff thrown together in a pot.
Geary's Healthy Turkey-Bean Concoction Recipe (makes about 4-5 servings)
In a large pot, mix the olive oil, diced tomatoes, onions, peppers, and garlic together until it starts simmering and allow to cook for a few minutes. Then add in the shredded turkey and can of baked beans and simmer for a few more minutes.
That's it... Simple, and maybe sounds a little weird, but I couldn't believe how delicious it was! Plus, it has a great mix of healthy carbs, protein, and fat, as well as a good dose of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
Til next time,
Don't be lazy... be lean.
