Clean Eating Curry Pineapple Turkey Rice Bowl

Hubs and I have been trying hard to eat healthy dinners recently.  The problem we've both run into is that a lot of the healthier meals we've tried aren't filling. It defeats the purpose of eating healthy if you're going to go to the pantry an hour later looking for more to eat. 

When I came across this recipe, it not only looked delicious but it looked filling. 
And it was.  

Results: I will be making this meal once a week and having it for lunch.  I love the sweetness that the cinnamon and pineapple juice brought to the dish.  The only change I made was not adding all of the {chunk} pineapple from the can.  I added about 1/2 of the pineapple chunks and felt it was the perfect amount of pineapple.  This meal was not only filling for the stomach but it was filled with flavor.  You must try this healthy meal.
