I love to eat chicken, but sometimes I do get a little bored of it.
This is when I call out to my dear friend TURKEY……. And what better than in the form of ground turkey that is so easy and fast to cook. And of course full of protein.
I love that turkey is so versatile to use. You can basically throw in any veggies, any spices, mix it in with the turkey and have a delicious and healthy meal. It is also really good to use in the crockpot.
One of my favorite ground turkey recipes is my Balsamic Veggie Turkey Meatloaf. Its in my Eat To Be Fit Healthy Recipes Book and it is crazy delicious and sooooo healthy! Its got tons of veggies in it. I love making it because its so big that I have tons of left overs for the rest of the week.
Its great for a snack because its got the protein and veggies all in it.
Anyhow, this healthy turkey recipe is great served with just a salad and some brown rice. I hope you give it a try. And if you want to find a salad recipe, you can check out My Pinterest Boards, which are full of healthy recipes. My favorite salad there is the Hearts & Avocado Salad…… YUM!

I just got an email from one of my BeFit Moms saying she lost 8lbs, and its only been 2 weeks…… AMAZING!

My family loved this dish and I hope that yours does too!
It really is nice to switch it up once in a while and eat something different.
I added a little wholly guacamole to the top of the turkey and served it with jasmine rice for the boys and they devoured it. I also had this for lunch the following day over a salad and it was really good. And I still had left overs so I served this up over the weekend for my hubby with some brown rice pasta. It was like a Healthy version of Pasta Bolognese. YUMMMMM
