  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 cups water


  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced (any color)
  • 1 purple onion, sliced
  • 4 cups arugula


  1. Prepare quinoa by bringing quinoa and water to a boil. Turn heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until quinoa is fluffy. Set aside.
  2. Prepare spices by mixing chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, and salt into a small bowl. You are going to use half on the ground turkey and half on the veggies.
  3. Preheat a a medium size pan to medium/high heat. Then, sauté ground turkey, stirring continuously until slightly browned. Add half the spice mixture to meat and continue cooking until fully cooked. Remove meat from heat.
  4. In the same pan, heat one tablespoon of olive oil and add in sliced onion. Cook for a few minutes and then add peppers and the rest of the spice mixture. Sauté for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. In 4 meal prep containers (these are the ones we use), separate out the ground turkey and veggies. Then add in around 1/2 cup cooked quinoa and a handful of arugula to each container.
  6. Serve with avocado and salsa.
