Turkey is a flavorful alternative to chicken and is quite affordable, but we tend to pass it by and reach for chicken, out of habit. This combination of spices lowers brain inflammation and improves blood sugar control. (This recipe is from The Better Brain Solution book)

Marinating Time: 20-60 minutes

Preparation & Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Serves:  2


1 pound organic, cage-free turkey tenders, sliced into 1- inch-thick strip

2 tablespoons avocado oil

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

¼ teaspoon ground cardamom

½ teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

2 medium garlic cloves, crushed and diced

¼ cup fresh mint, chopped


Marinate the turkey strips with 1 tablespoon of the oil, lemon juice, spices, salt, pepper, garlic, and all but 1 tablespoon of the mint for 20 to 60 minutes.

Heat a sauté pan to medium-high heat. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, then the turkey, and sauté until lightly browned on each side, turning every few minutes until fully cooked.

Remove from the pan, garnish with the remaining tablespoon of mint, and serve immediately.
