1 lb. ground turkey
1 bag of dry coleslaw mix, found in the salad section
5 cloves of garlic (minced)
1/2 cup of low sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger (I used ground ginger)
Start by cooking your ground turkey in a large skillet until it's brown. While it is browning, combine your garlic, soy sauce and ginger. Once your ground turkey has cooked completely, add your bag of dry coleslaw mix and stir until combined. Then add your soy sauce mixture, and stir until well coated. Cook on medium for an additional 3-5 minutes. The coleslaw should be wilted, but still slightly crispy.
Makes 3-5 servings, and is great when reheated!
I haven't shared a recipe in a while, mostly because I haven't cooked in a while. Whoops. However, I have a dear college friend, Megan, who started an Instagram account to focus on her healthy lifestyle. Guys, if you're in search of some fitness inspo, you should check her out! She often posts about her meal prep, and one of the recipes she recently shared caught my attention. It's called Egg Roll in a Bowl, because I love me some Chinese food. Now, I have to admit, the recipe she uses is different than the one I'm going to share. It's not because I didn't like her recipe; it's because her recipe uses ingredients not available anywhere in my town (coconut aminos.) So... Pinterest to the rescue. This recipe comes from, Mostly Homemade Mom, with a few small changes done on my part.
September was a bad month. There. I said it. I don't like to be a negative person, and try to keep my problems to myself, (unless you're one of my five closest friends or my parents.) Big changes were happening at work. Big changes were happening outside of work. Some good, some bad. So after weeks of feeling like I was failing at ALL THE THINGS, I finally decided to do something that would take me a step in the right direction. I decided to knock one small item off my 101 list- #70: Pay for the drink of someone behind me. It even happened to be National Coffee Day.
Then on the way to knock this item off my list, I got in a car accident. WHAT THE HELL, KARMA; I WAS TRYING TO DO A NICE THING! I won't go into details, but I will say that it was not my fault and there was no way I could have avoided the collision. I'm okay, and the lady and her grandchild were okay. My car... not so much. Actually, while writing this post, I received an email confirming that my car was indeed totaled. It was my first car, and I bought it with my own hard earned money. On top of that, I didn't even get a coffee on National Coffee Day. UGH.
So yesterday I said, "Screw it," to the bad luck and pity party, drove to the closest Starbucks in my fancy rental car, and knocked #70 off my list.
70) Pay for the drink of someone behind me
I really hope that it made him or her smile and feel a little better about this wonderful, but sometimes tricky life we live.
PS) The couple that I bought the coffee for had just bought a new car. It still had the dealer stickers on the window. Perhaps that's a good sign for things to come?
