Geary's Healthy Turkey-Bean Concoction Recipe (makes about 4-5 servings)

The following recipe may found weird but once you tried it, you just can’t believe how good it is. Therefore give it a try and most of all, it just dead easy to prepare.

  • 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)
  • large vidalia onion diced
  • 2 red peppers diced
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, Most of all, it has a great mix of healthy carbs, protein, and fat, as well as a good dose of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
