Delicious recipe...balance your plate & blood sugar

My #1 "Must Do” for Balance nutrition (macros) and to stabilize blood sugar... is “Protein + Healthy Fat + Complex Carb w/Fiber” with every meal or snack. This is how I optimize my blood sugar and energy, the goal is to maintain a slow rise in blood sugar with no sudden spikes.

This is the optimal way for everyone to help balance their energy, blood sugar level, mood, weight, etc.

This recipe is perfect example of how to balance your plate with whole food ingredients..'s yummy too!

Spicy Sweet Potato, Turkey & Kale Bowl

Balanced plate of deliciousness!

10 ingredients 25 minutes 4 servings


• 2 Sweet Potato (medium)

• 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

• 1 tbsp Chili Powder

• 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper

• 1 tbsp Coconut Oil

• 1 White Onion (diced)

• 1 lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey

• 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

• 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

• 8 cups Kale Leaves (finely diced)

• 1 or 2 ripe avocados


Preheat oven to 425 and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

1. Wash and dice your sweet potato into half inch cubes. Toss in olive oil, chili

powder and cayenne pepper. Spread across the baking sheet and bake in the

oven for 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the coconut oil. Add the

onion, ground turkey, sea salt and black pepper. Use a spatula to stir and break

up the turkey as it cooks.

3. Once the turkey is cooked through, drain off any excess liquid and return to

heat. Add the kale. Stir and saute just until wilted and remove from the heat

immediately. Divide into bowls and top with the roasted sweet potato and sliced avocado.



Save Time:

Chop the sweet potato and onion in advance. Store in the fridge until ready to cook.

Vegan & Vegetarian Options:

Skip the ground meat and roast chickpeas on the baking sheet

along with the sweet potatoes. Saute the onion on its own in step 3.
