Who says it's too early for a turkey dinner? This was way easy & made me wonder why I think turkey is solely for Thanksgiving.
Simply place a thawed turkey breast (not a whole bird) into a roasting pan with some chopped sweet potatoes, sprayed in coconut cooking oil & seasoned with fresh ground salt & pepper. Follow the cooking instructions on the turkey. Mine needed about an hour and 15 minutes to cook.
Once done, check the internal temp of the turkey to ensure it's fully cooked. Then let sit while you roast some asparagus (you know the drill). As the asparagus cooks, slice up your turkey, cook the gravy that comes with (I don't care for gravy at all, but the kids like it), and toss together a pretty salad with some fall fruit, like fresh pear or apple slices, nuts, & pomegranate vinaigrette. Yum!
And because I kept tossing sweet potatoes into my mouth as I finished cooking, you'll notice very few on my plate! Always be mindful of the dinner you've eaten before actually sitting down to dinner ;)
As a busy mom of 3, working multiple part-time jobs & volunteering in PTA, I am all about QUICK, EASY, HEALTHY, REALISTIC meals. If it takes longer than 20 minutes or requires hard-to-find ingredients, it's likely not gonna happen! Don't ask me for macros, because that goes against my Real Life mentality-- just know I always balance carbs, protein, & healthy fats.
