Ground Turkey & Veggies

I don't have a picture of this, but I figured I should post about it because it was such a simple meal to throw together after a long day. I've been sick this week, so my motivation to really do anything significant in the kitchen is at an all-time low. Instead of my usual scrambled eggs and turkey bacon, this morning I had a banana and turkey bacon because I was too lazy to make the eggs. The other night after class, it would've been so easy to give up and binge on an ice cream sandwich or two. Instead, I threw together some vegetables and ground turkey for a nutritional, filling meal.

3 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 zucchini, diced
1/2 yellow squash, diced
1 cup white mushrooms, sliced
1 lb. ground turkey
Herbs de Provence OR rosemary, parsley, sea salt, pepper

Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sautee for 3-5 minutes, until softened. Add the rest of the vegetables and sautee, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes, until softened and reduced. Remove to a separate bowl. Add the turkey to the same pan and brown. Drain grease. Add the vegetables to the pan with the turkey and season to taste. Voila!

This makes easy leftovers for lunch as well. You can also put dijon mustard on it for added flavor.
