Protein "Scramble"

It doesn't have eggs, but rather is called a scramble because I scramble around the house throwing a bunch of healthy ingredients into a fry pan!

2 tsp olive oil
2 small onions, diced
1 small head garlic, diced
1.25lbs extra lean ground turkey
Spices of your choice (I describe my choices below)
1 can kidney beans
1 can green beans
1 lb fresh spinach

Heat up 2 tsp of olive oil, add 2 small diced onions and a small head (not clove) of diced garlic. Cook until the onions start to soften. Add in 1.25lbs of ground turkey breast (the extra lean ground turkey packs). Around this time you add in whatever spices you like. I use a bunch of Mrs. Dash Hot and Spicy as well as tobasco sauce but you can go milder. When turkey is almost done cooking, add a can of washed kidney beans and a can of green beans. When turkey is done, pile on a half to a lb of spinach and mix in. When spinach is wilted, you are done!

When I calculated the kidney beans, oil and turkey I got 2 pts for 1/8 of the mix which is pretty filling.

Anyways, this is my super meal staple when I need a lot of filling meals for under $10 (well less then that if you get things on sale).

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
