Heart-Healthy Recipe

Turkey + Sweet Potato Skillet

Lean ground turkey is a high quality protein source with a low saturated fat content. Sweet potatoes offer complex carbohydrates for replenishing glycogen stores and are rich in vitamin A and potassium, essential nutrients for muscle function. This combination of protein and carbohydrates supports muscle protein synthesis, leading to muscle repair and growth.

Ingredients:
1 lb lean ground turkey
2 sweet potatoes, diced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
Topping of shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

Directions:

  1. Add the turkey and garlic to a skillet on high, and cook for about 5 minutes
  2. Add the onions and bell pepper, and cook until the onions are soft
  3. Add the sweet potato, cumin, paprika salt and pepper
  4. Cover the skillet and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender. Don’t forget to stir occasionally. If necessary, add more olive oil or a little bit of water to cook the sweet potatoes faster.
  5. When the sweet potatoes are tender, add the shredded mozzarella cheese if desired.
