Looking for healthy savory food while needing to watch your weight or blood glucose? Sweet potatoes are not off the menu. Check out this delicious easy turkey skillet dinner that is filling yet is modest in calories and carbs.
Are you looking for healthy savory food that is easy to prepare and weight-friendly? Although I don't eat low carb, I do carb-control my meals, especially at dinner when I am most likely to be sedentary after eating. One of my favorite meals that fits the bill is this easy turkey skillet dinner. This is one of the few potato dishes that is fairly modest in calories and carbs yet very filling given the high protein and veggie content. There are many recipes that you can find online for this basic comfort dish but here is one that I have modified that I think tastes great. I first started with Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet from Kitchen Primavera and then modified it to fit my taste buds.

1 lb (16 oz) lean ground turkey

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp Morton's Lite salt
