FOODIE FRIDAY

So for the last several weeks I’ve been following the portion fix meal plan that goes with The 21 Day Fix and Insanity Max 30 ~ this last week I’ve been combining BOTH Max 30 and 21 Day Fix Extreme in SUPER WORKOUTS.  It has been AWESOME and I feel like a super hero!  But it definitely needs HIGH PROTEIN SUPPORT!

I made Turkey Chili this week – a recipe straight out of the 21 Day Fix Extreme Recipe Book.  It was delicious!  It’s chili.  Chili is always delicious!

Ingredients:
-1.5 pounds ground turkey
-1 tsp olive oil
-1 onion, diced
-1 green pepper, diced
-3 cloves of garlic, minced
-1.5 tsp cumin
-2 tbsp chili powder
-1/2 tsp sea salt
-1 tsp cayenne pepper
-1 tsp red pepper flakes
-2 15oz cans black beans, rinsed and drained
-1 15oz can diced tomatoes with liquid (I used fire roasted!)

(I also added 1 pint of home made tomato paste and 1 pint of water, because following the recipe LOOKED like it was kind of dry to me!)

All you do is saute onion, green pepper, and garlic for a few minutes, then add the turkey and cook until it’s not pink, add the spices, beans, and tomato, bring to a boil and then simmer for 20 more minutes.

I ate it over 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa with cottage cheese:  REALLY hearty and delicious!
