Expert Tips

  • Spinach offers a host of nutrients including vitamins A, C, folic acid and iron to name a few. Iron helps transport oxygen to red blood cells to prevent anemia.
  • Ground turkey should be used within 1 or 2 days of purchase, or should be frozen. Ground turkey breast is leaner than ground turkey, and can be used instead, if you like.
  • Garlic-pepper blend can be purchased in the spice section of the grocery store. It's a mixture of garlic powder, ground pepper and other seasonings. If not available, use 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder instead.
