Turkey Chili

Description:  This will take you less than an hour to prepare and cook, and each serving contains only 300 calories, 6 grams of fat, 39 grams of carbs, and a whopping 23 grams of protein. In addition to the punch of protein, the kidney beans are a good source of Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 8 servings
Serving Size: 1 bowl

1 pound ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
2 cups water
2 large chopped tomatoes
1 (16 ounce) can canned kidney beans – drained, rinsed, and mashed
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Place turkey in the pot, and cook until brown.
2. Stir in onion, and cook until tender.
3. Pour water into the pot. Mix in tomatoes, kidney beans, and garlic.
4. Add chili powder, paprika, oregano, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, and pepper.
5. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.

Spinach & Artichoke Dip

Description:  Rather than snacking on high salt, high fat nutritionally-lacking ranch dressing and potato chips, why not get some nutrition in your dip with this easy, tasty spinach and artichoke dip. One serving has 190 calories, 6 grams of fat, 25 grams of carbs, and 9 grams of protein. Plus, you'll be getting a significant amount of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E from the spinach, and a decent amount of folic acid and fiber from the artichoke hearts.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chilling Time: 6 hours in the refrigerator
Yield: 12 servings
Serving Size: 3 pita triangles with dip

1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

1/4 teaspoon salt

Artichoke Hearts – drain and chop
Spinach – thaw, chop and drain
Green Onion – dice
Whole Wheat Pitas – cut into triangles (6 pieces each)

1. Mix together mayonnaise, greek yogurt, onion, artichoke hearts, salt, pepper, and chopped spinach in a bowl.
2. Chill in the refrigerator 6 hours or overnight.
3. Pita bread triangles can be dipped in.

Seven Layer Bean Dip

Description: 7-Layer dips are fun, flavorful and fairly healthy. Refried beans are a great source of good source of Protein, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Potassium. You'll also get potassium from the avocado - did you know that avocados contain more potassium than bananas? And you'll get antioxidants such as Lycopene from the tomatoes. One serving has 240 calories, 11 grams of fat, 25 grams of carbs, and 12 grams of protein.

Roasted Sweet potatoes

Description: I've been dying for an excuse to make Lorna Jane's cinnamon roasted sweet potatoes. One serving has 214 calories, 9 grams of fat, 26 grams of carbs, and 8 grams of protein. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin B6 and are also a good source of Vitamin C, so these are better for you (and tastier) than your average French fries.

 Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
Serving Size: ¼ of recipe

1 tbsp. fresh ground cinnamon
2 large sweet potatoes
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (you can choose any healthy cooking oil, but this recipe works best with olive oil as it give the fries that crispy texture)
Himalayan pink salt

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 tbsp. tahini
1 clove garlic, minced
splash of lemon juice
drizzle of honey
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle of paprika

1. Preheat oven to 392 degrees. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into French fry style sticks.
2. Place in pan and drizzle with olive oil.
3. Sprinkle on the cinnamon & a pinch of salt. Toss to coat evenly.
4. Bake for 35 minutes. Turn them over at half way. “Note all ovens are different, so keep an eye out – they should be golden colour when ready.
5.  Serve warm with dipping sauce.
