Calcium, iron, protein, vitamins A & C and very tasty

My favorite so far, I give this quick & easy recipe of healthy goodness 5 shinning stars!

While going through the veggies this morning in the fridge I noticed I had a bag of Trader Joe's Organic Kale that needed cooking.  Having never cooked Kale I decided since I was trying something new I would go all out and see just how creative I could get with this bag of kale.


Simmering Sensation of Yum


I rummaged through the fridge and cabinets to see what called to me and found some beginning ingredients for the new invention.  I had 2/3 of a red onion left from breakfast and 1/2 a tomato so they were going to become one with the Kale.  While pulling out a pack of Trader Joe's ground turkey I started to get excited thinking I might be on to something here.





I found a can of Trader Joe's Light Coconut Milk, some organic canned chick peas and more goodies.  Before I knew it I was sitting at my desk eating some of the tastiest healthy food I have ever had and certainly ever made.  Learning how to cook new things is really starting to get exciting now that I am learning I can make my own recipes out of all these healthy ingredients.  I like this one the best so far, it is soooooo yummy and super healthy.

What a great lunch, it was quick and easy.  I going to bag up the left overs in 1 cup servings and freeze them for the rest of the week.  This is really getting fun, I think you will like this one a lot!
