  • 3 ½ c water
  • 2 c short grain brown rice, uncooked


  • 1 ½ lbs ground turkey
  • ½ tbs avocado oil*
  • ½ lemon
  • salt (to taste)


  • 1 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika


  • 1 15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 c frozen grilled corn
  • 1 lime
  • 1 c cilantro
  • 1 c salsa fresca


  • guacamole
  • avocado
  • Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • cotija cheese
  • fresh greens



  1. MAKE THE RICE: In a medium-sized pot, bring water and rice to a boil. Turn down to low, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork.
  2. COOK THE MEAT: While the rice cooks, preheat a large pan over medium to medium-high heat. Then add avocado oil and meat to the pan, stir often and use a spatula to break it up into smaller bite-sized pieces. Season with spice mixture and the juice of ½ a lemon. Add salt to taste. Will cook quickly, in about 5-7 minutes.
  3. PREP THE CORN: Microwave the frozen corn for 2 minutes, or until just thawed through.
  4. ASSEMBLE THE BOWLS: Divide rice, beans, meat, and corn between four containers. Add a lime wedge and cilantro to each one. If eating right away, add choice of fresh toppings. If saving some portions for later, pack the chosen fresh toppings separately so that you can heat up all the hot ingredients at one time and add the cold ingredients later.
