Recipe for building strong bones by Dr. Claudia Tamas

Turkey is a great source of protein, which the body uses to build and repair bones and muscles. Turkey is also a good source of vitamins and minerals such as magnesium and niacin, all important to maintaining healthy bones. 

Black beans contain essential bone building nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, phosphorus, copper, and zinc.


  • 2 tsp. Paprika
  • ½ tsp. Ground Cumin
  • ½ tsp. Oregano
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 4 Turkey Breasts
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 1 cup chopped Onion
  • 1 cup Corn Kernels
  • 1 can drained & rinsed Black Beans
  • 1 Red Pepper, diced
  • 2 Limes 

Mix paprika, cumin, oregano, and salt in a small bowl. 

Rub both sides of the turkey cutlets with 1 Tbsp. of the spice mixture. Save the remaining spice mixture for the next step. 

Heat oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add onion and red pepper; cook and stir until tender. Add remaining spice mixture and cook and stir 1 minute to toast the spices. 

Stir in the corn and beans.  Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 3-4 minutes or until heated through. 

Squeeze in fresh lime juice from one of the limes.  Cut the other lime into slices and use to garnish the dish.

Remove from heat and put the veggie mixture onto a serving platter.  Keep warm. 

Place turkey cutlets in skillet and cook on medium heat until cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side.
