Over the last few years or so, I have made the decision to have less carbs in my diet and found that following a paleo diet has really streamlined getting in better shape. Focusing on more protein in my diet along with concentrating on healthy fats, I was able to lose 20 pounds last year. Due to having hypothyroidism, it is hard to lose weight and staying away from things with a lot of sugar and carbs has really helped me personally.
The recipes on this site you will find a lot of paleo-inspired recipes! If you don’t follow a paleo diet, hopefully these are some options for you still!
My relationship with ground turkey has really spiked over the last year as well. The more I eat ground turkey, the less I eat ground beef. Ground turkey is not only healthier, but in my opinion it has more of a flavor where it needs less seasoning. I use ground turkey for meatballs, tacos and just about any other replacement where ground beef is in the recipe. If you haven’t attempted ground turkey tacos or turkey meatballs, you should try some!
Here is a great, fresh tasting recipe that features ground turkey in a somewhat taco form! I give you Cajun Turkey Lettuce Wraps!
