Great Results and a Favorite Winter Recipe

Posted by on Jan 10, 2013 in Blog, Nutrition, Recipes | 0 comments

Recently I had some routine blood work done and I was super proud of the results.  Other than some wonky hormones (I am entering menopause afterall), everything is perfect – including my B and D vitamin levels, which are often off for even the most health conscious people. Particularly noteworthy is that the marker for cardiac inflammation was so low they couldn’t even measure it!   So thankful for a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Here’s one of my favorite healthy – and filling – winter recipes.  I hope you enjoy it!

Turkey Stew

INGREDIENTS (I use all organic):

1 to 1.5 lbs turkey tenderloins, cut into ¾ inch pieces

1 Tbsp chilli powder

1 tsp ground cumin

½ tsp salt

1 sweet red bell pepper, cut into ¾ inch pieces

1 sweet green bell pepper, cut into ¾ inch pieces

½ cup chopped carrots

1 large onion, chopped, ¾ to 1 cup

3 gloves garlic, minced

1 (15.5 oz) can chili beans in spicy sauce, undrained

1 (14.5 oz) can stewed tomatoes or chili-style tomatoes, undrained

¾ cup of your favorite salsa

PREPARATION:

Place turkey pieces in crockpot/slow cooker. Sprinkle turkey with chili powder, cumin, and salt; toss to coat pieces. Add bell peppers, carrots, onion, garlic, beans, tomatoes, and salsa. Mix Well. Cover and cook on LOW 5 hours or until turkey is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Serve in bowls, topped with a sprinkling of cilantro or parsley, or other garnish.
