Container Equivalents (per serving, per Country Heat nutrition guide): ½ GREEN – 1 YELLOW –  1  RED – ½ teaspoon***


  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, chopped
  • 1 lb. raw ground 93% lean turkey breast
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1½ tsp. finely chopped fresh thyme (or ½ tsp. dried thyme)
  • Sea salt (or Himalayan salt) and ground black pepper (to taste; optional)


1. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat.

2. Add onion, bell pepper, and sweet potatoes; cook, stirring frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until onion is translucent and sweet potato is tender-crisp.

3. Add turkey; cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until turkey is cooked through and sweet potato is soft.

4. Add garlic and thyme. Season with salt (if desired) and pepper (if desired); cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.


* I doubled this recipe. I love green peppers and onions so I added 3 of each yet instead of doubling the sweet potatoes I only did 3 of those. 

** My pan was not big enough for the double recipe so I actually cooked the veggies in one pan and the turkey in another and then combined and simmered the last few minutes. 

*** Note: The serving size provided was 3/4 cup for the containers listed above providing 4 servings – however I found my recipe when it was said and done to have nearly 1.5 cups for 4 servings yielding 1 yellow, 1 green and 1 red. Use your best judgement!

Country Heat week 2

Well I’ll put my tail between my legs and be the first to admit I LOVE COUNTRY HEAT!!!!

I am not a big dancer and didn’t think any sort of “cardio dance program” was going to be something I would enjoy – let alone – something that would get me results.

2016-08-04 07.22.49

But I watched, researched, learned and figured…WHY THE HECK NOT!

2016-08-05 07.06.56

I have workout program ADD like no other and always like to switch things up – so why not switch it up with a program created by the one and only Autumn Calabrese and have fun doing it!

People keep asking me: Do you really, like really like it?

2016-08-06 08.38.56

And the answer is one big loud YES!!!

I do!

Like any fitness routine – you’ll get out what you put it! And if you put it in to this workout you’ll be feeling the results…this I promise you!

Plus it doesn’t matter if you’re 5 or 25 or 55 you can rock this program!!!

And while the workouts are hitting my legs and core and keeping my heart rate PUMPING I know the results are found in the kitcehn.

2016-08-07 07.37.06

I was so happy to learn that Country Heat follows the same portion container system I implemented into my lifestyle with the 21-Day fix – over 2 years ago!!!  This made the transition so much easier and I was happy to see a few new recipes in the nutrition guide – namely that Turkey & Sweet Potato hash!!! More on that one later!!!

Country Heat meal plan week 2.png

As you can see I keep my meal plans SIMPLE. My breakfast and snacks are pretty much the same every day.

I enjoy my Shakeology as meal #2 without fail and truly look forward to it as the clock strikes 9:00 each day!

2016-08-01 09.20.50

My lunches are typically some sort of combo of the prior night’s leftovers and my dinners are pretty simple!

My hubby and I are celebrating our 7 year anniversary dinner and enjoying a dinner at home straight from the grill and Wednesday evening is busy so I tossed in a crockpot meal.

And this is the same process I go through every week.

Sure the workouts are fun and a great workout but you have to stick to the nutrition plan to truly see your hard work pay off!!!
