Turkey Fried Rice

Fried rice is a delicious, but usually calorie and sodium heavy dish. This version is packed with filling protein and vitamin-rich veggies. Ground white meat turkey, brown rice, and veggies create a tasty and simple meal that also makes a great leftover lunch. I added some fresh ginger for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and some chili oil for spice. This is Craig's favorite dinner, so I always try to make extra for leftovers.

Vegetarians can skip the turkey and substitute your favorite meat substitute or some slivered almonds.

Full recipe and photos after the jump.
