Recipe: Power Packed Rice!

So, you’re on the 21 Day Fix and taking your diet seriously. But you don’t know what to make for dinner to keep it interesting?? Here’s one of my FAVORITE go-to recipes that’s packed with flavor, nutrients and 21 Day Fix Approved! Just read below to know how to portion out the containers!
Power Packed Turkey, Beans and Rice

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (be sure to buy at least 93% lean turkey)
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 3/4 can tomato paste (6oz sized can)
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tbsp. cayenne pepper (I like spice though, so I probably ended up adding a total of 1 tbsp.)
  • 1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed, heated
  • Brown rice, cooked
  • Cook turkey on medium heat in large pan until it is fully cooked.
  • Add tomato, green pepper and onion. Simmer for 3 minutes. Stir, simmer another 5 minutes.
  • Add seasonings and tomato paste and stir. Allow to simmer 5 minutes.
Serve with 1 yellow container filled with brown rice, and 1 yellow container filled with kidney beans (that have been heated)! If you want to do half and half, that’s fine too!! Just stir everything together in your bowl. Yellow is the most important container to pay attention to, so be sure to not over-do it! Measure out 3 Red Containers of mixture, this will count towards 1 ½ Red and 1 Green for your daily total. Feel free to top with some non-fat Greek yogurt as “sour cream” too!
