Ingredients
  

  • 2 lb Ground Turkey
  • 1 cup Quinoa
  • 2 cups Cauliflower Rice
  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 1 can Black Beans
  • Green Onions for topping
  • Avocado for topping
  • Salsa for topping
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & pepper we also season with cumin, crushed red pepper, and oregano

Instructions
 

  • Dive the peppers, onions, and peel and chop the sweet potato into small pieces.
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium-high and put in a bit of olive oil. Brown the ground turkey (add some spices for flavor) and set it aside in a bowl.
  • While that cooks, make the quinoa following the directions on the package. (We usually use about a 1/2 cup in the protein bowl, but make extra to eat for the week.)
  • Cook the veggies, starting with the sweet potatoes (cook for 5-7 minutes), then add onions, peppers, and black beans (cook for 3-4 minutes). Finally, add the cauliflower rice, and cook for about 2 minutes.
  • When the veggies are done cooking, add the black beans and ground turkey to heat it all up together for a minute. Scoop out a bit of quinoa, add the meat and veggie mixture, and top it with sliced avocados (and some salsa if you want to add some spice!).
