Alexa’s Meal of the Week

Turkey Chili…I know what you are thinking- I am a tad crazy because Chili is a warm, comforting, cold weather food. But, it’s one of my favorite meals, its full of nutrient dense ingredients, and it satisfies the heck out of me. My mom always says “it’s a hit” every time I make it for our family…Maybe she is just filling my heart up with confidence and joy, but I kind of believe her.


Anyhow, here it is. Try it. It will last you for most of the week and you won’t have to put much thought into meal prepping. What a win!


  • 1.5-2 packages of lean ground turkey
  • 3 cans of fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of tomato sauce
  • ½ Tbsp. of tomato paste
  • lots of minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. of olive oil
  • 1 can of cannellini beans
  • 2 cans of butter beans
  • 1 can of kidney beans
  • Tons of spinach
  • Tons of kale

First: Pour olive oil in a large sauce pot. Throw in minced garlic, tomato paste and some black pepper. Stir to coat bottom and let garlic simmer for about 2 minutes.


Second: Throw in turkey, cover with lid and let cook.


Third: Put all remaining ingredients in pot- diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beans, spinach, and kale. The spinach and kale will cook down quickly, don’t hold back.


Fourth: Spices- sea salt, chili powder, turmeric, pepper, oregano, and basil. Trust me. Let this all cook on low for about 45 minutes-1 hour.
