2 cups kale, chopped

2 lean turkey burger patties

1 cup grape tomatoes, halved

2 tablespoons golden flax seed

¼ cup quinoa

Tahini Detox Dressing


Set the oven to a broil. Place the turkey burgers on a foil-lined baking sheet and cook 5 minutes on each side. Simultaneously cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package. While the burgers and quinoa cook, toss the kale with the Tahini Detox Dressing and massage to coat.

1 pound chicken breasts

2 cups chipotle salsa

1 can beans (black, pinto, fat free refried)

1 tomato, chopped

1 cup red onion, chopped

2 cups fresh corn

1/4 cup cilantro


Cut the chicken breasts into cubes then place in a large Ziploc bag. Pour the salsa into the bag and refrigerate, allowing the chicken to marinate for at least one hour. While the chicken is marinating, chop the tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and remove the corn from the ear. Set aside. Heat a saucepan to medium heat and coat the bottom with nonstick cooking spray. Add the chicken cubes. Cook for 8-12 minutes, stirring occasionally so it evenly browns. While the chicken cooks, heat the beans in a small saucepan. When the chicken is cooked completely, remove and serve in a bowl with the beans, tomato, red onion, corn and cilantro (optional - serve over romaine lettuce). Top with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing.  Makes 4 bowls.
