#FoodieFriday: Keeping It Simple

Happy Friday All!

Sometimes, I really enjoy being creative and trying out new recipes to make healthier versions of my favorite foods. Other times, I don’t want to cook, I don’t know what to cook, and I’m starving. Can you relate?

For this #foodiefriday, I wanted to post a simple meal that I cook anytime time I find myself helplessly searching Pinterest for a recipe. Check it out below:

What you need:

  • 1lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 can of sliced carrots 
  • 1/3 cup Long grain rice (really, any kind!)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder 

What you do:

Add 1/3 cup of your rice to a rice cooker. This is literally my favorite cooking hack ever! I don’t have to even think about cooking. I just throw in the rice and some water, and twenty minutes later, my rice is done!

In the meantime, add your ground turkey to a skillet. Season with salt, pepper, and  garlic powder. Brown turkey.

At the same time, put carrots into a sauce pan on low-heat. Add in pepper and wait to boil. 

Through it all onto a plate, add a La Croix to the picture (and mustard if you will), and you have yourself a healthy and quick dinner! 

What’s your go-to, late-night dinner? 

Talk soon!
