Stir-fry's are one of my go-to dinners on busy week nights. They are healthy, quick, minimal clean up, and a family favorite. Using frozen vegetables helps this recipe come together quickly with minimal preparation.

Each serving contains 300 calories, 23g protein, 19g carbs, and only 3g of saturated fat making this a delicious and healthy meal. Serve over cauliflower rice for a low carb option.

Ground turkey stir-fry is full of nutrient dense, colorful vegetables, and is a great way to get vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants into your family's diet.

Did you know that frozen vegetables are actually just as nutrient dense, if not more so, than fresh vegetables. Frozen vegetables are picked at their ripest and flash frozen, which helps maintain all of the nutrients in the vegetable.

Ground turkey stir-fry is delicious over rice, noodles, cauliflower rice or served by itself.
