Baked Sweet Potato, Lean Ground Turkey Burger & Sautéed Broccoli – Day 2

This recipe takes a little bit longer due to the baked sweet potato, but a way to make it go by faster is to put it in the microwave for 7 minutes on high, and it’ll be all done .. I just don’t have a microwave :).

This recipe will make 1 meal

(Obviously, you can double or triple ingredients if you’re making it for your family or friends)

Calories: About 350

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 Lean Ground Turkey Burger (I buy Lean Ground Turkey Meat – Usually Jennie-O or Purdue- and make about 4 burgers .. cheaper and you can season them yourself)
  • Whatever seasonings you use for your burger (I used garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper)
  • Broccoli Florets (Fresh or Frozen work)
  • 1 Medium Sized Sweet Potato
  • Coconut Oil (I use Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil: http://www.spectrumorganics.com/?id=87)
  • Ground Pepper
  • Fresh Garlic (amount to your taste – I used 2 cloves)
  • Cinnamon & Nutmeg (if you want)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • Once preheated stick the sweet potato with a fork a few times, in multiple places to let it breathe and stick in the oven for 45 minutes. (Again a faster way to do this is in the microwave, listed above).
  • Thaw frozen broccoli
  • When frozen broccoli is thawed (or if using fresh broccoli), sauté in a hot pan with coconut oil and fresh garlic.
  • In another pan, rub coconut oil on the bottom and place the Turkey Burger (seasoned with whatever you’d like) and let cook.
  • Flip burger ever 2-3 minutes as to not burn it.
  • Once the sweet potato is cooked, cut in half and put a little bit of coconut oil on top and sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg & a little pepper.
  • Put food on plate … and Enjoy ❤ !

Happily & Healthily Yours,

  1. Thank you for doing this!! I’m just getting started with my cleanse, and being a huge carb addict and not much for veggies, I appreciate the time you’re taking to do this!!

    • Of course! I come from an Italian family … we LOVE our carbs! haha – I understand! There are so many ways to have healthy alternatives that still taste great! I hope this helps 🙂 .
