The Frozen Vegetable Recipe Debate

I have never been one to love frozen vegetables. Those bags of frozen vegetables just seem slightly less healthy. But many studies find that frozen vegetables are just fresh veggies. I’m still going to keep my fresh veggies around, but bags of veggies can be very helpful during busy seasons.

Skillets can be a wonderful time to utilize veggies. My hubby loves our ‘Vegetable and Sausage’ skillet. That one used many frozen veggies supplies and continues to be one of our favorites.

THM and Ground Turkey Recipes

The THM lifestyle makes so many allowances for freedom in eating, including in the type of meat you use in your cooking. Ground turkey is such a versatile option in THM. There are many thm ground turkey recipes and depending on the type of meat you use, it can have less fat then ground beef. Most of the time it is exclusively a S setting meat, unless it is labeled 96-99% lean.

Other Easy THM Ground Turkey Recipes

There is an abundance of other thm ground turkey recipes out there from other bloggers and THM creators. I love the cute name that the Coers Family gave their Trim Healthy Mama style Dirt-E Rice. Such a cute word play, and a delicious E recipes, which is a great example of how ground turkey does have the possibility of being used in a E setting.

A Home with a Purpose is one of my all time favorite THM websites and stories. I’ve never met or talked to Jeniffer, but she just radiates God’s love and her THM testimony is powerful. These Tasty Turkey Meatballs can be used in a variety of fuel settings.

If you are looking for a vegetable rich meal, then my Okra Infused Spaghetti Squash Casserole might just be the ticket. I can’t get enough of this stuff, and my toddler even eats it up! This calls for ground beef, but turkey can definitely be substituted.

My last favorite ground turkey recipe is straight from the THM sisters. This Cheeseburger Pie recipe is in their first cookbook and has become a regular recipe around our house. The ground turkey option is just as delicious as ground beef.

THM Recipes with Ground Beef

Most, if not all, THM ground beef recipes can be substituted with ground turkey. However many of the recipes that have ground turkey, may not be able to be substituted with ground beef. Ground turkey is a lean meat that is often used in E settings (healthy carb), and ground beef is a fatty meat that is often used in S settings.

Ground turkey can be subbed into S meals because it is lean, but ground beef cannot be substituted into E meals because it would make it into a crossover. If you are intentionally separating fuels be cautious of this, but if you are going for a crossover type meal, then substitute all you want!

Utilizing the Fuels

Your fuels is the backbone of the THM lifestyle. If you are always using S meals, that’s called Keto. A healthy balance of all the fuels is the goal; mixed in with common sense for your respective season in life. Ground turkey can be an excellent resource to use when you need to mix up your fuels.

What are your favorite THM ground turkey recipes?



    It’s been a long time since I used ground turkey in our recipes. I used to use it in spaghetti and tacos. Somehow my family got away from that. I love veggies and still use frozen in recipes. This sounds super easy and healthy. I have never used nutritional yeast. What is that exactly? Thank you for sharing your recipe with us. I am always on the search for something new to make that will be both tasty and healthy! ❤

      Nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast that contains many vitamins and minerals for health benefits. It has a very rich flavor, almost like a rich cheesy flavor, but without all the dairy!
