Paleo Turkey Stir Fry (paleo, scd)

One of the advantages of living in a country full of lazy people is that some things are far easier for those of us who normally do not take shortcuts. For example, the steamed vegetables in a bag are becoming ever more popular but the idea of steaming vegetables in a plastic bag is very not-Paleo. However, just because food is packaged and marketed a specific way does not mean that it has to be used as the manufacture intended. I'm sure you've seen pre-packaged items in the store like vegetable stir fry mix. Read the ingredients to make sure there aren't any unnecessary additives, just plain, unadulterated veggies that happen to be pre-cut. Is everything I buy always organic? No. Do I wish it was? Yes. But we can't have everything in life. If you are looking for a quick and easy Paleo meal try this timesaver.


1 package of stir fry veggie mix (12 ounces broccoli, cabbage, carrots, snow peas)
1 pound 99% lean ground turkey
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp pepper
salt, to taste


Heat coconut oil in large frying pan over medium high heat.
Add ground turkey. 
Break into pieces with a spatula, stirring occasionally.
When turkey is about half way cooked through, add stir fry vegetables and spices.
Cover and reduce heat to medium.
Stir occasionally and continue to cook for about ten to fifteen minutes, until veggies are tender-crisp and turkey is cooked thoroughly.



  1. I LOVE those little bags of veggies. They are always the perfect size for 2. And I dont have to rummage through the bin of half-rotten green beans or snow peas.

  2. And how to make that recipe even better with just a few seconds more work. Use real garlic and real onions instead of the powdered version!

  3. Snow peas arent paleo. Unless you take the peas out of each pod
