Lemon Pepper Turkey Breasts with Sautéed Spinach

This year is starting out great so far! 'Jackie' yesterday and back squats today! ... Feeling strong and paleo prepared!
Tonight was a pretty quick & tasty fix!

Lemon Pepper Marinade: (I marinated turkey breast, but this would be great on chicken or fish, too)

1/4 C lemon juice
Zest from 1/2 lemon
1 T olive oil
1 tsp. ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 C water
2 T fresh rosemary, chopped fine
1/2 tsp. sea salt (optional)

~Combine all ingredients in a plastic bag, add turkey breasts and marinate for 2-8 hours. Bake at 350 degrees, for about 35-40 minutes (internal temperature of 175 degrees).

Sauteed Spinach:
Okay... this was delicious!
2 tsp. olive oil
1 T lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T chopped dried cherries
2 T slivered almonds
pinch course grey sea salt

~Honestly, this was my favorite part of tonight's meal. YUM. Heat olive oil over medium heat and saute garlic. Add spinach leaves (about 1 bunch or 4 C). As it starts to cook down, add lemon juice, slivered almonds and cherries. Cook about a minute longer, and remove from heat. Sprinkle with a pinch of grey salt.

We also enjoyed this with our typical side salad! Hope you enjoy! Hmmmm, what will tomorrow bring?!
